David is a second-year Masters of Environmental Science student at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies interested in global environmental health. Thus, on the data gathered so far, a hectare of primary rainforest in Africa can be expected to have roughly the same number of species as one in Asia or South America existing under similar mean annual levels of rainfall (although the pattern of seasonality in rainfall does affect this as well).

The velocity of water movements underground can be astonishingly slow; it may take rainwater water tens or even hundreds of years to reach the aquifer it is replenishing. (For a curious case of replenishment rates, see The Enchanted Lake ). The number of overused aquifers has increased rapidly in recent decades from 32 in 1972, to 80 in 1985, and 104 in 2004 Forest Coloring Book For Adults: An Adult Coloring Book of 40 Woodland Designs and Wild Aniamls by a Variety of Artists (Stress Relief Adult Coloring Books) (Volume 1). Although current laws prevent cutting any trees for fuel or timber, trees are nonetheless cut away and I often see tell-tale stumps of young trees. Further, any fallen tree is immediately removed to use as firewood for use in homes, for drying tea leaves, or to make charcoal. This means that very little of the biomass is allowed to go back to the forest with consequences for carbon storage, soil nutrient cycles and ecosystem properties. 30 tons of firewood is used by this factory per day for drying tea, the demand intensifying during the wet monsoon months The Equatorial Rain Forest: A Geological History.

The park is accessible by car and there are marked paths for hiking through the jungle People and Forests: Communities, Institutions, and Governance (Politics, Science, and the Environment). Many of these have been undertaken at the expense of the forests and other natural resources in the area. The projects may solve immediate requirements for extra food, more employment and increased revenue, but the consequences of the over-exploitation of the forests include soil erosion, sedimen- tation of dams and harbours, and water pollution National Geographic Vol 181 No 1.

They fall for a number of reasons: some are felled by people who live in the forest; others fall after being struck by lightning or high winds; but most fall simply because of old age, often hastened by termite damage or epiphyte burden. The gap torn through the forest is usually quite large, for a single tree, linked to its neighbours by immensely strong, elastic lianas, inevitably brings others down with it Forest Management: Applications, Challenges and Strategies. In the hunted areas, seedlings had shifted away from plant species dispersed by primates toward those that depend on other types of animals or on wind for seed dispersal Italy (National Geographic Magazine, Vol. 120, No. 5, November 1961). Because of Canarium's value as a food source, Carlson is taking a closer look at the fruit production of this species. Thus far, the understanding of Canarium in Madagascar is poor; its taxonomy needs revision and its phenology is unrecorded. The analysis of forest structure and phenology will facilitate the estimation of the distribution and relative abundance in space and time of different food sources, as well as the availability of different microhabitat types Forest Products and Wood Science.

As an example related to our northern forests, let’s take the practice of burning wood to heat our homes, as many of us do and more will likely do as the cost of heating oil rises as a result of the leveling off of oil production. If there is a theoretical town in Maine with two-hundred homes (P), and they are all heating with 1950-era Franklin wood stoves (A&T), these two-hundred homes would be burning a fair amount of wood and sending a variety of pollutants into the air (I) National Geographic Traveler - October, 2001.

The stability of its climate ensures an exceptionally high diversity of trees and plants. Borneo lowland rainforest is often referred to as the dipterocarp rainforest, emphasizing its uniqueness in hosting the biggest number of species of dipterocarp trees in the world. By World Wildlife Fund's estimates, Borneo has 267 species of dipterocarps, 60% of which are endemic (i.e., present only in Borneo and not found anywhere else). (Ref. 8) Dipterocarps are large strong hardwood trees suitable for use in many commercial applications including, ex., furniture Native and Cultivated Conifers of Northeastern North America: A Guide (Comstock Book).

Instead of going to a playground or a shopping mall for fun, children in places like the Amazon spend most of their time outdoors playing in the forest and in rivers and streams. There are several reasons the lives of forest peoples are changing. Tribes in places like the Amazon and Malaysia are losing their traditional land to governments and developers. The forests they have used for countless generations are being cut down by loggers, torn up by miners, and hunted by poachers Life Magazine, 19 August 1946.
