A forest (or rainforest, woodland, jungle, shrub land, etc.) refers to an area covered with trees. The natural scenes of forests have not only fascinated numerous tourists but also inspired many artists’ works, such as Strauss’ well-known waltz G’schichten aus dem Wienerwald and Burroughs’s bestseller Tarzan series. Aside from the beautiful scenes, forests also provide homes for the wildlife and microorganisms as well as precious natural resources to humans, including timber, food, purified water, fresh air, natural energy and medicines.
