I saw the light filtering in from the trees, making them sparkle. The greenest greens I had ever seen were glowing in the trees and underbrush. Then I looked down, and saw the millions of insects swarming in a frenzy like a cloud, the menacing jaguar stared at me, nearly licking his chops, I knew then that I was most likely going to die. Stretching before me was the Amazon Rainforest. This extreme environment, the Amazon, is not an online store, at least not in this case.
15 They covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail—everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees. Nothing green remained on tree or plant in all the land of Egypt(Exodus 10, New International Version).” Definitely sounded like what was happening now. Staring up at the sky in awe, it occured to me that this was probably God coming to punish me for stealing Mary’s biscuit the other day.
The tropical rain forest is one of the major vegetation types of the globe (Richards, 2006; Whitmore, 1998). It occupies a total area of 1818.43 million hectares, representing 47% of the total land area occupied by all forest types of the world (FAO, 2003). The tropical rain forest is the most diverse of all terrestrial ecosystems, containing more plant and animal species than any other biome (Turner, 2001). In spite of this diversity, most species are locally endemic or rare and patchily distributed (Richards, 2006). It is worthy to note that in recent times, the concern has been to concentrate conservation effort in the tropical rainforest because of its richness in biodiversity.
All of the sounds made them feel like they were standing on train tracks about to be flattened by a train. They ran! “I have goldfish and salt and pepper in my pockets,” screamed Lola! Weston yelled, “OH DEAR NUGGETS!” “Ahhh, the bear is literally right behind us,” screamed Lola.
Deforestation is the most obvious impact of mining and has also an impact on depending species, supports erosion as well as landslides because of unprotected soil. Aside from that soil degradation is another problem, which influences domestic vegetation and might changes the whole vegetation
Now, we have a lot of environmental issues on the earth. That a lot of forest have been destroyed is one of the issues. People have cut a lot of trees for resources or urbanization. In Central America, people also cut a lot of trees and led forest destruction. However, the reason why they started to cut the tree was surprising to me.
The White Tiger Soft, quiet footsteps is all that was to be heard at the heart of the jungle as a man quietly walked between rotten branches from the ancient trees. His bow was raised, ready to fire. He was somewhat of a wind, once there now gone, going its own direction. The wind was blowing his way which made this day perfect for hunting. The morning was cold but the sun was already shining.
As a result this extremely rocky land is capable of growing only plants such as (calliergon giganteum or arctic moss) lichen, moss, and heath that only need the first few inches of soggy soil to grow. These plants have to be able to endure little sunlight and 100 mph winds. The tundra receives on average just 30 cm rain and the soil lacks the needed nutrients to grow bigger plants. One such plant is the Diamond-leaf (salix pulcha or diamond-leaf willow) Willow. Normally growing to 30 feet in height these trees only grow 5 to 6 inches tall.
By not using the rainforest we can destroy so many lives. So, although it causes damages, people will be in big problems without the Amazon being able to be
Prior to industrialization, the forests used to serve as buffer zones from the farms to naturally sift out much of the excess nutrients. With the growth of population, farms, and factories, thousands of acres of forest has been leveled, eliminating the natural barrier. Along with the with forest loss, the use of pesticides and chemicals has degraded the water so much that the Bay is currently on the Environmental Protection Agency 's "dirty waters" index.
In North Carolina there is huge deforestation problem. We are losing trees at a rapid pace and this must slow down or we will lose many of our natural ecosystems. I propose a solution to this problem, for every tree that is cut down you are legally required to plant a new tree. This would be put into place on a state level and would definitely help with the issue of the destruction of forests in North Carolina. Deforestation is the act of cutting down a large quantity of trees in a short period of time.
Subject- Deforestation affects majority of the population, including people and animals, across the nation and in my community. Situation or Problem- Deforestation is the action of eliminating trees, in forests, by cutting them down. The objective of deforestation is to create more land for construction and land establishments with the idea of not restoring thee trees back or replacing them. How it affects my community- Deforestation can disrupt the homes of many animals, including birds and fish.
