Diversity and Destruction
By Dave Kristula [ 9 January 1997 - 9th Grade Bio Paper]
[A section of Dave's Site ]
The purpose of this paper is introduce the reader to the truths about the rainforests and its destruction. The rainforests are disappearing acres per minute, a number that grows so quickly it would be impossible to cite here because it would grow outdated within a week. The rainforests are home to over half of the entire species of the world, which are being destroyed with the rainforests.
Unlike the rainforest itself which may appear to grow back, it will never be the rainforest it once was, and all of those species that were killed will never return again. Many of those species that have not yet been discovered may very likely cure cancer, AIDS, and many of the other diseases and viruses of today. If the rainforests disappear, so will most of the population of the world. This report will help the reader to learn more about the causes of the horrifying destruction, and ways that the reader can help stop it!

This report is about many aspects of the rainforest: what rainforests are, a brief summary of the importances of the rainforests, a description of the destruction of the rainforest, and an informative section about how an average person can help to save the rainforest.
In this report the reader will learn many things, from the great diversity of the rainforest, to why simply not buying fast food hamburgers can help to save it. Also, the reader will hopefully have a better understanding of how more slowly developing countries's economies work and how laws really do help to protect the environment to a certain extent. Acres of rainforest are destroyed every minute, this paper will explain to the reader why this is happening, and why this needs to be stopped.
