A common estimate is that approximately half of the world’s animal species live in rainforests. There may be 15,000 different animal and plant species in a single acre of lowland rainforest.
The actual number is unknown as only a tiny fraction have been discovered, butit has been said to be over 50% of the worlds species. The reason 50% of species can be found on only 7% of land is because some species are only found in a very small area within the rainforest, sometimes even down to a range of only a couple of square miles. With some discovered plants, only one or two have ever been found, and it is very possible the number in the species might be that small. An estimated 140 species in the rainforest go extinct every day.
