The word chytrid is short for chytridiomycosis, a fungal disease that infects the keratinized structures on amphibians, such as skin and tadpole mouthparts (keratin is also present in your hair, skin, and nails). Amazon rainforest birds account for at least one third of the world's bird species, being toucan the most popular icon.

Students were asked to rate on a five-point scale (1 = no power, and 5 = powerful) their locus of control (“Power to Change”) before and after the treatment. An independent-samples t-test was conducted to compare perceived locus of control between participants in the control group (n = 11) and the experiment (n = 21). There was a significant difference between perceived power before and after the treatment in the control (M = 0.546, SD = 0.282) and experimental (M = -0.429, SD = 1.363) conditions before the viewing and during the viewing (t30 = 2.116, p = 0.043; Fig. 5 right) A Smart Kids Guide To RAMPAGING RIVERS AND RESPLENDENT RAINFORESTS: A World Of Learning At Your Fingertips.

As a result, forests may be degraded in terms of the carbon stored if tree diversity is reduced, for example, through excessive selective logging of high wood-density tree species such as mahogany (Kirby and Potvin 2007). Hence, monitoring populations of high wood-density tree species over time relative to an expected population (by age class) can indicate forest ecosystem degradation (see stand-scale ecosystem diversity and biomass indicators, above) with respect to carbon storage over the long term (e.g., Vieira et al. 2005) Life Magazine - May 17, 1954 -- Cover: Dawn Addams, Starlet and Bride.

The idea of protecting nature for nature's sake began to gain more recognition in the 1930s with American writers like Aldo Leopold, calling for a "land ethic" and urging wilderness protection. It had become increasingly clear that wild spaces were disappearing rapidly and that decisive action was needed to save them National Geographic September 1987 Vol. 172, No. 3. For example, more mortality among small trees (Ickes et al. 2005; Forest Management and Ecology Program, Forestry and Wildlife Conservation Society – DR Congo Program, 257 Center for Tropical Ecology and Biodiversity, Tunghai Institute for Tropical Ecosystem Studies, University of Puerto International Center for Tropical Ecology, University of  2006 Blackwell Publishing Ltd/CNRS download National Geographic - March 1961 - Vol. 119, No. 3 pdf. The second strategy that a plant can adopt is to produce a mass of seeds to ensure that its genes have as many opportunities as possible for expression. Flowering and fruiting is therefore a major investment in terms of energy, and takes place only when conditions are right National Geographic - March 1961 - Vol. 119, No. 3 online. Globally, the destruction of tropical forests is a major contributor to climate change, as felled and burned trees and vegetation release methane and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Moreover, because fire is often used as a cheap and quick means to clear land for oil palm plantations, the resulting air pollution can block out the sun and threaten human health both near and far Australia - Wildlife and Wilderness: Variable Scenery and Vegetation Zones Make Going on a Trip to Eastern Australia an Unforgettable Experience.
