Invertebrates of Singapore Rain Forest

The invertebrates came before us and made the world as it is today. They surround us everywhere and outnumber us exponentially beyond comprehension. On land and in the sea, they will still be around when human race vanquish. Below are just some examples of invertebrates living in our rain forest, for example MacRitchie. Our failure to recognize their ecological services extended to us via the dynamism of a healthy intact rain forest for which they are in part responsible will certainly lead us to our ruin.
