  • 6. SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS BIOME/ECOSYSTEM IN HRIM <ul><li>This particular biome is important for the course I am taking up because, this biome has the highest diversity. There are a wide variety of flora and fauna that can be found in this biome that are used for cooking food in Culinary Arts. </li></ul><ul><li>This biome also offers tourists a different kind of environment from the other biomes found in other countries. The climate in Tropical Rainforests is consistently warm though the temperature may be low at some times. This creates more tourists in the Philippines that the Tourism and Hospitality Industry caters to. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowing more about this biome helps me, as an HRIM student, to know about the significance of taking care of the environment which is very essential for the development of Tourism in our country. </li></ul>
