Ryan Hayes Critical Essay 3: Yeboah Distinguish between opportunities and constraints that the tropical rain forest and savanna biomes of Sub-Saharan Africa offer their residents. Why does the region remain poor in light of these opportunities? The tropical rainforest and savanna are part of a series of biomes or ecological zones that offer many opportunities for its people. Despite these benefits, the people in these regions remain poor. Within the TRF, we find an ample supply of good hardwood lumber like mahogany, ebony, wawa, and odum, which can be used for furniture and more. The 8,000 plant species in the virgin TRF give opportunities for potential medicines to solve diseases like AIDS and other serious diseases in the region. There are ample cash crops, which are grown for profit, and most likely exported to other nations. For example, cocoa and palm oil are the biggest cash crops grown in SSA tropical rainforests. The next advantage is their food crops, which usually are consumed within SSA. They grow plantains and cocoyams.
