Tropical forests are biodiversity hotspots – areas of extraordinary species richness of both flora and fauna – whose plants offer us food, medicine, shelter and even beauty products. They are facing extraordinary threats from changing climate, habitat loss, and over-harvesting, and steadily increasing need for plant resources by a growing human population.
