Good morning everyone. Did you know about the illegal logging? Illegal logging is the human activity when a many trees will be cutting down for their own greedy . The main purpose to logging is to gain economics resources for example is furniture and herbs. Corruption in government are the reason why illegal logging are too much happen in our country.
(Hypophora) It is not fair to the people who call the forest their home to lose their way of living. People may say deforestation is good for agriculture and logging, but the negatives outweigh the positives. (Counterclaim) Agriculture takes up a solid portion of earth’s land and does not need to take up any more space. It also harms the world’s atmosphere greatly. According to the World Wildlife Fund, resources used for farming, “are responsible for around 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions.” When you add that to the amount of greenhouse gases deforestation emits, it makes up a huge chunk of the carbon dioxide in the air.
The rest of the forest is threaten by plantations in areas like Hainan, Yunan, for example, the old indigos trees are being burnt to be made as eucalyptus plantations which are use to make paper pulp. In the terms of ecology, we all know that the ancient trees aren’t the same and can’t be similar to the plantations that are replacing the ancient trees. The Ancient forests are the main source to biodiversity, and it provides habitats for
This decree was subsequently renewed in the following years (http://www.mma.gov.br). The Brazilian timber industry has been seriously damaged by attacks from the shoot borer Hypsipyla grandella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) (Maia et al. 2000). The host range of this oligophagous pantropical species is limited principally to the
These phenomena may reduce biodiversity by making it more difficult for some species to either breed or find food (Wade, 2003). From these isolated fragments, many of the forest species will be disappear but this loss occurs throughout the relaxation period. Extinctions can be refrained by decreasing deforestation rates and increase reforesting fragmented forest landscapes. The mushrooming oil palm plantations in Southeast Asia that yield most of the world’s palm oil have had a devastating effect on the rainforest and its wildlife creature.
Although Indonesia is heavily operated by commodities, they have caused destruction to Indonesia’s stunning forests, terrains and animals. “Palm oil is an important and versatile vegetable oil which is used as a raw material for both food and non-food industries” (The social and environmental impact of palm oil). According to the WWF, overconsumption of palm oil has destructively impacted Indonesia’s geography. The reason why palm oil plantations causes deforestation is because they have to be situated in rainforests, as they grow most effectively in rain forest climates. “Globally there are between 12 and 13 million hectares of palm oil plantations.
Comparative Study on Avifaunal Diversity in the disturbed and undisturbed forest of Gogona Forest Management Units, Wangdue phodrang. Introduction 1.1. Background/problem statement Avifaunas are the essential part of the environment yet the protection effort seems inconsistent. With more than 686 species of bird recorded so far, Bhutan is well-known to be the best birding destination in Asia. The pressure on timber and extraction of lops and tops by local residents obliterate the preferred nesting and foraging sites posing an enormous threat to a substantial number of bird species.
Deforestation can occur quickly especially in the Blue Mountains, through fire or clear-felling to make way for plantations, crops or pasture. Deforestation can also happen gradually over time. For example, as a result of unsustainable logging or climate change. In Sydney, deforestation is predominantly caused by agriculture, more intense and frequent fires and mining and infrastructure projects. New roads are being built and forests are demolished and destructive logging practices and unsustainable wood collection can eventually lead to a spiral of degradation.
DEFORESTATION SYNOPSIS The purpose of this report is to highlight issue of deforestation and systematically identify its underlying causes by incorporating the views of all stakeholders’ forestry sector experts and policy makes from the federal provincial and local much. The main cause of deforestation are mounting population pressure dependence of urban and rural household of fuelwood, suppression of forest management in natural forest unscientific grazing beyond carrying capacity flood fires and storms inadequate financial input and stakeholder lack of involvement in the process of policy making. The activities of the timber mafia and lack of political will on the part of the government to bring them to book have further aggravated the
Another bad practice is the unregulated harvesting of woodlands for the production of wood lumber and paper pulp. Also, rainforests in equatorial regions, which are considered an essential element of the global environment, is being replaced at a steady rate by farming and mining land. Such activities are driven by greed and search for quick profit. Unfortunately, such delicate habitats never recover and eventually become new dessert
