Sassafras oil is obtained from the roots and is used in carbonated beverages, teas, medicines and perfumes. The decrease in recycling behavior is consistent with desensitization findings in the realm of violent media. For more rapid large-area comparisons, remote-sensing techniques are preferred, but only some tree species are identifiable from satellite images (e.g., Carleer and Wolfe 2004, Clark et al. 2005); most species require aerial photography, LiDAR, or ground surveys for identification.

We propose a minimum subset of seven indicators for the five criteria that should be assessed to determine forest degradation under a sustainable ecosystem management regime. The indicators can be remotely sensed (although improving calibration requires ground work) and aggregated from stand to management unit or landscape levels and ultimately to sub-national and national scales online.

Instead, by hunting many of the leopard’s preferred prey—such as red river hogs and forest antelopes—bushmeat hunters are out-competing leopards. (06/27/2011) Bushmeat is one of the major threats to wildlife in parts of Africa: large and medium-sized animals are vanishing from regions in a trend dubbed by biologists the ’empty forest syndrome’ online. The conditions imposed by the International Monetary Fund often force heavily indebted countries to sell their natural resources far in excess of sustainable exploitation. [16] A necessary initial step in ending rainforest destruction is for each of the world's over-developed countries to acknowledge the ways in which it contributes to deforestation and stop them Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska's Tongass Rain Forest.

A single tribe of Amazonian Indians makes use of more than 100 different species of plants for medicinal purposes, yet virtually none of these has been properly analysed.
