Forests are called rich spots of biodiversity. Do you agree? Give reasons.

Yes, I agree that forests are rich spots of biodiversity. Following are the reasons to support my statement:

Forests provide habitat to a large number of animals or we must say most of the wildlife. By providing habitat to different group of animals they become a rich source of biodiversity.

Area covered by forests is 6% of the total but 90% of the wildlife resides in them. Therefore, they are a rich source of biodiversity.

Forests include a variety of plants, vegetation and thus provide great diversity in fauna and hence are a rich source of the biodiversity.
