Rain Forest Discussion Lists

" ...this sidehill rain forest was a choking vegetable metropolis. The competition was fierce, deadly. The soil was thin, and roots could take no firm grip in it, so trees tottered and leaned, one against the other. Vines, like tentacles, lashed out and wrapped themselves around this branch or that. Parasitic flowers erupted everywhere. Branches, vines, and strange bits of bushy foliage twisted and snaked about through the tortured, thorny gloom, looking for a place in which to steal the sun." (Tim Cahill, Jaguars Ripped My Flesh)
