Most - but not all - plants get their start on the forest floor. It is hot and still, and the light is often dim. In some areas the forest floor is flooded for part of the year, in others it remains dry What is a Rain Forest?: And Other Questions About Conservation and Ecology. The study, published in Nature Communications, found palm oil plantations are home to fewer… Most new roads will be built in developing nations. Here, a road-killed tapir in Peninsula Malaysia. © WWF-Malaysia/Lau Ching Fong “The best thing you could do for the Amazon is to blow up all the roads.” These might sound like the words of an eco-terrorist, but it’s actually a direct quote from Professor Eneas Salati, a forest climatologist… Not a new idea, as this map from 1885 shows, but no less controversial NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC (VOL.176, NO.4 / OCTOBER 1989). Coral reefs account for less than 1% of the entire ocean floor and are in decline because of rising sea temperatures, increased ocean acidity, and powerful storms.

Anyway, lets hope that this study can back up some arguments in the science-policy dialog with decision makers in Tanzania and abroad. And here are some news from my current field work that is part of my Thesis.

Although the rain does not fall all year round, this does not affect the canal as the forest within its watershed acts as a giant sponge, soaking up the rainwater and releasing it at a steady rate throughout the year Requiem for Nature (Shearwater Book). By spending as little as a single day on this project, you could help scientists to come to a new understanding about invasive species. This in turn could ultimately lead to important new management strategies. Use your mobile phone to help us locate invasive plants! Invasive weeds are a significant threat to native plants and animals. Although most non-natives are not considered "invasive", those that crowd out food sources for wild animals, create erosion, or act as a significant fire hazard can be considered a threat and need to be identified and located for removal THE OYMPIC RAIN FOREST.

Most of these people still depend on hunting and gathering; however, most have learned to grow crops and use pots, pans, and utensils. Some even bring food from the local market. The native dwellers still depend on the natural remedies of the forest for medicinal purposes. Rainforests play an important role in stabilizing the world's climate by absorbing the excess carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere from other parts of the world LIFE Magazine - October 2, 1964 - The Warren Report. This is a unique learning opportunity that students are sure to remember Inventory and Evaluation of Tropical Forest Land: Guidelines for a Common Methodology (Tropenbos series). Forests are natural dams that catch rainwater in their canopies and in leaves and litter on the forest floor, retaining and purifying rainwater. Forest logging allows rapid run-off and destroys the ability of the soil to absorb water. "It's one thing not to see the forest for the trees, but then to go on to deny the reality of the forest is a more serious matter." Methane is an important greenhouse gas, but it is not known whether tropical rain forests are net producers or net consumers of this gas. 57 In some of the Asian forests there is a suspicion that not all the nutrients present in the soil are accessible to plant roots, because the trees show adaptations for scavenging nutrients above ground, similar to those of Amazonia Palm Trees of the Amazon and Their Uses. But a new study, published today in Nature, suggests the Amazon has passed saturation point for how much extra carbon it can take up. A team of almost 500 people monitored trees in more than 300 sites across eight countries. Between 1983 and 2011, the researchers measured the trees in each plot, recording the number, size and density to calculate how much carbon each one stored National Geographic Volume XXXIII, Number Five, May, 1918.
