Some Features of  the Forests:

Forests are the most widespread  stretches of vegetation, harbouring diverse kinds of life forms. They are dominated by trees. Besides trees, forest ecosystem includes various types of small plants, mosses, ferns, fpngi, several kinds of micro-organisms, insects, reptiles, birds, mammals and animals of diverse kinds. All  these live under the soil or on  it, and in  thewater and air of  the forest. Each organism is a part of  the forest ecosystem, and each reacts with all the other organisms. But all  require the energy to survive, which  is provided by the sun and trapped by the foliage. Forests possess multi-layered structure  termed as stratification . This makes available space for living for a wide variety of plant and animal species. For example, there are small,  tender plants, that form the lower most layer. Them there are small shrubs which form the second  layer. A third layer may consist of small trees. And the tall trees that form roof or canopy of  the entire vegetation may constitute the fourth layer. Various kinds of  animal  life, depending on  their living habits, occur in different layers,  of vegetation.
