Keystone Species
The keystone species in Madagascar would be the toucan. Plants, animals, and the environment would all be effected by the loss of toucans. Many small organisms rely on these birds to spread out nuts along the forest ground. Toucans eat fruit and plants. It is also eaten by larger carnivores such as the mongoose. These things wouldn't get eaten as much or have as much food without this species of bird.
Food Chain 1
Food Chain 2
Rocks
There are many rocks that cover the floor of the rainforest. Some organisms live under these rocks.
Water
Aside from rain, rainforests in Madagascar have large amounts of water covering the ground. Animals have to adapt to this water by going through it or around it.
Wind
Madagascar does not recieve a significant amount of wind. However, the wind does create a slight breeze for the animals which can cool them down.
