The below mentioned table of 262 vertebrate species has been complied which includes 60 species endemic to Sri Lanka. This gives an analysis of the fauna of Sinharaja forest in relation to the total fauna of the Island. From this Table it is evident that there is a high degree of representation of Sri Lanka fauna, particularly endemic species at Sinharaja Forest National Geographic November 1963, Vol. 124, No. 5.. Here resources can be used to improve agricultural land that is already in production. Undoubtedly most knowledgable and skilled in the subsistence use of the Amazonian forest are the local inhabitants, the Amerindians, and it is they who have often suffered from the development of the Amazon.

Unfortunately most loggers, shifted cultivators, cattle ranchers, and fuelwood collectors frequently burn trees for clearance purposes, releasing even more CO2 into the atmosphere. The release of large amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere can cause an enhanced greenhouse effect; increasing earth's global average temperature Hill Birds in North-East Highlands.

This is because the nutrients are stored in the vast numbers of trees and plants rather than in the soil National Geographic, June 1973 (Volume 143, Number 6). Emma Sayer (in the photo) and colleagues used the results from a six-year experiment at STRI to show that extra litterfall triggers an effect called 'priming', where fresh carbon from plant litter provides much-needed energy to micro-organisms, which then stimulates the decomposition of carbon stored in the soil. The researchers estimate that a 30% increase in litterfall could release about 0.6 tonnes of carbon per hectare from lowland tropical forest soils each year online. For example, additional nature conservation areas will be set up, and zones will be created where the rainforest can only be managed and utilized according to ecological criteria.

According to a major study, Wilderness: Earth's Last Wild Places, carried out by Conservation International, 46% of the world's land mass is wilderness. For purposes of this report, "wilderness" was defined as an area that "has 70% or more of its original vegetation intact, covers at least 10,000 square kilometers (3,900 sq mi) and must have fewer than five people per square kilometer." [22] However, an IUCN / UNEP report published in 2003, found that only 10.9% of the world's land mass is currently a Category 1 Protected Area, that is, either a strict nature reserve (5.5%) or protected wilderness (5.4%). [23] Such areas remain relatively untouched by humans National Geographic Vol. CIX Number Two Feb. 1956.
