Many forest tribes had no knowledge of metal, and no need of it, since there were ultra-hard forest woods that could make just as deadly an arrowhead as any iron or steel. But wood, however hard, rots down over the years, and so do all the other natural materials that rain forest peoples use: the bamboos and rattans, the liana ropes, plant-fibre fishing nets and hammocks, the wooden buildings and woven baskets American Canopy: Trees, Forests, and the Making of a Nation. The white lemuroid’s plight is echoed by rare and endemic species across Earth’s tropical rainforests. Over the past five years we’ve begun to realize just how sensitive tropical communities are to climate change—how a few extra degrees can mean the difference between a healthy ecosystem and a dying one. We’re starting to paint a picture of what Earth’s most biologically diverse forests will look like by the end of the century, and it isn’t a pretty one Life Magazine, September 27, 1943. In practice, however, limiting the environmental impacts of roads in developing nations is expensive and risky. Tropical nations rarely have the institutional capacity, human capital, or financial resources to adequately manage development in their remote frontier regions, frequently leading to a “resource grab” revolving around illegal trade and outright theft of natural resources, which is greatly facilitated by road expansion National Geographic - November 1918, Volume XXXIV, Number Five. Observing life cycles of plants and animals with Nature's Notebook is easy and fun, and you will discover so much more about the plants and animals you see everyday NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC - MAY 1988 - VOL. 173, NO. 5.

Additional considerations for Start!e’s species choice were bamboo’s fast growth, hardiness, and a lack of negative connotations from funders, where species such as Eucalyptus may be perceived as more invasive or negative environmentally Animals of the Rain Forest (Windows on Nature).

Over time, new trees will grow up tall enough to shade these plants out again, but that could take years. In the meantime, these areas of the forests remain sunny oases of diverse plant life National Geographic July 1968 (Vol. 134. No. 1)! This may come in the form of a marketing effort that emphasizes how people can personally be affected by environmental degradation National Geographic Magazine-1926. The causes of degradation vary globally, including unsustainable logging, poor agricultural practices, invasive species, fuelwood gathering, and wildfire, with synergistic effects (van Wilgen et al. 2001, Asner et al. 2006, 2008, Chazdon 2008, Murdiyarso et al. 2008, Kissinger et al. 2012). Although there are numerous definitions of forest degradation (Simula 2009), many are reductionist (e.g., Parry et al. 2007), and none is adequate to inform decision making National Geographic Magazine, Vol. LXXXV, No. 6, June, 1944 online.

During this dry season, many trees shed some or even all their leaves, creating a seasonal reduction of canopy cover and allowing more sunlight to reach the forest floor. The increased sunlight reaching the forest floor allows the growth of vigorous understory vegetation not found in lowland equatorial forest. Such moist forest is found in parts of South America, the Caribbean, West Africa, and Southeast Asia, especially Thailand, Burma, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka LIFE Magazine - November 1, 1943.

Land-use forcing can exert its influence via direct impact on the hydrologic cycle, and one scientific specialty closely identified with land-use forcing is generally known as hydroclimatology. All forest species are part of the hydrologic cycle, and loss of forest cover may force change in the hydrologic cycle and thereby the climate. This does not mean that we should choose between land use forcing and greenhouse forcing as competing hypotheses for climatic change LIFE Magazine - December 27, 1943. Once the settlers moved in they generally received no advice on what crops to grow or how to grow them. Monocultures were encouraged in spite of the fact that they are the most liable to attack by disease and pests, and the least likely to be sustainable. This was discovered as early as the 1920s when Henry Ford tried to plant huge areas of rubber trees pdf. As early as 1889 Archibald Meston predicted that the rainforests near Cairns would soon attract hordes of scenery-seeking tourists – though only to lament that ‘the tourist Goths and Vandals’ of the future would despoil the place by strewing ‘their abominable sandwich wrappers, and infernal rum bottles over this splendid picture in the art gallery of Nature!’ Tourists – with or without their litter – soon came Forest Management: Applications, Challenges and Strategies.

These are swallowed whole, the large seed being voided in the birds' droppings.

Forests house 80% our terrestrial biodiversity. The livelihood of over 1.6 billion people depends on forests. Approximately 60 million people, mainly members of indigenous and local communities, reside in forests. Forests store more than 1 trillion tons of carbon. Over 40% of the world's oxygen is produced by rainforests. More than 1/4 of modern medicines originate from tropical forest plants. 13 million hectares or 32.5 million acres (roughly the size of NY State) of forest continue to be lost per year online.
