The Living Forest

       The Forest is alive with life. It's very nature relates to a complex series of interactions between the living organisms it contains. Biology has traditionally studied the individual elements, but each living organism is not isolated but interacts with its environment. Ecology studies these interactions and the interdependance of each element that make up ecosystems such as this forest.

To understand the distribution of habitats one must look to the physical environment and the historical influences on them. Soil types influence what plants weill grow and how well they grow. Soil types are the result of the local geology, weather and topography.
