They come out at different times in different places, but June is often a good time to see them. The Dark Sky Meter (available for iPhones) allows citizen scientists to contribute to a global map of nighttime light pollution. Light pollution is a growing problem in urban environments, but now you can help scientists better understand its effects on the environment Counting in the Rain Forest 1-2-3 (All about Counting in the Biomes). Although the harsh climate, lack of shelter and corresponding lack of food makes these forests scarcer in plant and animal species than lowland forest, they are still species rich and contain a high level of biodiversity National Geographic Magazine, August 1978 (Vol. 154, No. 2).

It’s been almost forty years since James Lovelock first proposed the “Gaia hypothesis”: a theory that Earth regulates itself in a manner that keeps the composition of the atmosphere and average temperatures within a range conducive to life. Derided or dismissed by most people at the time, the Gaia hypothesis is now accepted by many as scientific theory National Geographic Magazine - January 1934 - Vol. LXV, No. 1. 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 American Canopy: Trees, Forests, and the Making of a Nation.

Nice 'n' slow: A three-toed sloth climbs a liana to the forest canopy. Lianas provide critical connections among trees to allow arboreal animals to move from tree to tree. "Lianas are important for animals in tropical forests, because they connect from one tree to the next tree, and provide a lot of resources," Schnitzer said. Because the hardy vines can thrive in the dry season, they can flower and produce fruit when other plants don't, providing a source of food National Geographic Magazine, September 2012.


At one point there were 200 different species of trees in a hectare. This is a tropical rainforest and can be found at the north east coast of Queensland, Australia.

Research topics were dominated by studies of material physical resources such as forests, wildlife, and natural resource management.

See a map of the Amazon basin river network. When you are paddling the Amazon river, or any of its tributaries for that matter, taking an Amazon river cruise, or jungle trekking in Peru, Colombia or Ecuador for instance, you will know you are visiting the most powerful and diverse natural phenomenon on Earth, not to mention the awe-inspiring experience you will have in front of its timelessness, indescribable beauty.. National Geographic Magazine April 1983 Volume 163 Number 4. Carbon dioxide is one of the greenhouse gases responsible for warming earth's surface and lower atmosphere above natural temperatures ( RIC, 2000B ). When large areas of rainforest are cleared, the trees are no longer present to help absorb the rainfall and protect the soil from erosion ( RIC, 2000B ). As a result, heavy flooding, soil erosion and the siltation of rivers are daily occurrences in heavily deforested areas National Geographic Traveler - May, 1995 (Volume XII, Number 3).

The results clearly show that annual yams favor open, brighter habitat, with higher ratio of ISF (Indirect Site Factor), that is, with higher light levels, compared with perennial yam species, which are found in more closed, darker Table 1 shows the distance of each surveyed plot from the roadside villages, ) in each plot, and the number of yam stems found per hectare epub. Known as ‘rainforests by the sea’, mangrove forests are breeding grounds for many fish, shrimps, prawns, crabs, shellfish and snails, as well as habitat for numerous species of birds, lizards, turtles, crocodiles, and primates including crab eating macaques, proboscis monkeys and, occasionally, orangutans Tarantula (Read and Learn: A Day in the Life: Rainforest Animals). When rare rains arrive, they sprout, flower, and produce seeds within two weeks. Land that is 1,970 ft (600 m) or more above the sea is a mountain.
