Some species of fungi live in partnership with the tree roots, while others are parasitically destructive. Australia’s Tropical Rainforests cover approximately 900,000 square hectares and are internationally recognised as being one of the most ecologically fascinating natural areas in the world, as one of few remaining truly pristine tropical rainforest places on the planet. With a matching grant from the Mukti Fund, I travelled to the island of Nevis in the Eastern Caribbean in the summer of 1990 to work for the Nevis Historical and Conservation Society (NHCS).

The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance by Laurie Garrett - [] Where's your next disease coming from? From anywhere in the world--from overflowing sewage in Cairo, from a war zone in Rwanda, from an energy-efficient office building in California, from a pig farm in China or North Carolina. "Preparedness demands understanding," writes Pulitzer-winning journalist Laurie Garrett, and in this precursor to Betrayal of Trust: The Collapse of Global Public Health, she shows a clear understanding of the patterns lying beneath the new diseases in the headlines (AIDS, Lyme) and the old ones resurgent (tuberculosis, cholera) National Geographic Magazine December1999 , Vol.196, No 6.

Spiders can only consume liquid food, and these large prey items are macerated with the powerful mouthparts and sucked dry, a process taking an hour or more.

If a tropical rain forest contains ten times as many species as a temperate woodland, either tropical rain forests have a wide resource base, and are thus capable of holding more species, or the species that inhabit t "One of the central dogmas of modern ecological theory is that species can coexist in a state of equilibrium only if they use different sets of resources National Geographic Magazine, September 2012.

The plantations also carve up the habitat of native animals like Asian elephants and white-cheeked gibbons, according to a 2012 study by the scientists R. Grumbine, an American author and scientist in Yunnan’s capital, Kunming, argues that because of rubber expansion, Xishuangbanna’s tropical forests are losing their ability to provide non-timber forest products and other economic resources linked to healthy ecosystems. “There are all sorts of positive stories that come out of the rubber transition — none of them are ecological,” he says, adding that Chinese government officials “bought into it before they understood fully the ecological consequences and the potential social and economic costs going forward.” Environmental problems stemming from intensive cultivation of rubber and other cash crops also affect other regions in Southeast Asia where farmers are transitioning into plantation monocultures and away from swidden, or slash-and-burn, agriculture National Geographic Magazine, February 1970 (Volume 137, No. 2).
