    CORRECT! Rainforests are rich in biodiversity, containing 80% of the world’s species of plants and animals. That is true for El Yunque as well! While El Yunque is one of the smallest forests in the National Forest System, it has more biodiversity than any other forest! In fact, there are about as many tree species here at El Yunque— about 250 different types of trees on less than 30,000 acres—as on all the 192 million acres of other national forests in the United States combined.
