Rainforest Destruction

the main causes of total clearance are agriculture and in drier areas fuel wood collection,mining,industrial development and large dams also have a serious impact.

Why not help?


How many humans have contributed to Rainforest Destruction?

the greatest cause of tropical rainforest destruction today comes from human activities, which, unlike natural damage, are unrelenting and thorough.

  • Activities that contributed to this loss include subsistence activities, oil extraction, logging, mining, fires, wars, commercial agricultural, cattle ranching, hydroelectric  projects, pollution, and hunting.

HELP SAVE THE RAINFOREST!!

how does this topic affect the environment?

if tropical rainforest deforestation continues at the current rate, it is estimated that by the first part of the 21th century about half of the remaining rainforest will be lost along with about 5 to 10% of all the species on the planet.

Aren't you aware of the consequences??

how does this topic affect human health?

more trees cut down causes less carbon dioxide to get absorbed which builds in the atmosphere with the other greenhouse gases and leads to global warming.this builds up occurs from human activities such as the cutting down of forest.save the world!

Briefly describe the history of rainforest destruction.When did it begin?

Starting in the late 1960s . Brazil began cutting and burning forest at an alarming rate. In 2005, Brazil's annual deforestation rate unexpectedly began to fall. It went from aout 27,000 square kilometers in 2004 to about 4,500 kilometers in 2012.

SO FRESH, SO CLEAN

Other interesting facts about rainforest destruction?

If the current rate of deforestation continues, it will take less than 100 years to destroy all the rainforests on the earth.

Soil erosion ,floods, wildlife extinction, increase in global warning, and climate imbalance are few of the effects of deforestation.

Throughout their existence, tropical rainforests have been affected by natural forces like fire, drought, and storms. These events occur on a random basis and can damage large stretches of rainforest. However, the damage caused by these natural occurrences is generally different from that caused by human activities; namely in that the forest loss is not complete and parts of the ecosystem continue to function. From the surviving remnants of the ecosystem, the forest can usually rapidly regenerate. Within a few years, the forest diversity can return to or exceed the diversity that existed before the disturbance. Some studies have suggested that these periodic occurrences are an important ingredient to a forest's diversity. Without these events, scientists believe, some forests cannot reach their fully dynamic state. Researches have found that forest turnover rates may be as short as 65-135 years.
