    If deforested, rainforests can grow back. (Rainforests are usually in equilibrium with their environment and take many many years to establish) Rainforest soil is not very rich. (Existing in very wet areas, what do you think the consequences for the soils are (hint: rainfall enhances leaching)? Agribusiness is responsible for much of rainforest deforestation. (Agribusiness ="businesses involved in food production") - definition from wikipedia Farmers in South America are often paid to protect the rainforest. (Can't find any evidence of this one, have you checked your textbook?, it may be possible) There are some clues, can you tell me which one you think it is?
