Forest biodiversity benefits much of humanity as a whole through its role in the carbon, water, and nutrient cycles and through its links with food production, including seed dispersal and crop pollination.

Some world level NGO's just published a joint statement under the umbrella of the CPF (Collaborative Partnership on Forests).

Please, have a look at it and feel free to download it and spread it around you.
