The rainforest helps maintain and regulate the continuous recycling of water that filter to the rivers, and lakes without this it would be more droughts, it supports air quality and helps trees absorb carbon dioxide and produce H2O. It also provides wood, fiber and fuel and it is also important to indigenous communities supplying fresh water, wild foods,wild fisheries and wood for fire and building. People who live near the rainforest also hold a somewhat cultrue or spiritual bond giving them a sense of
The deforested trees are not being wasted because other parts of the tree will be used when necessary. Through regeneration, forests can continue to thrive while also being cleared. According to the article “Natural Regeneration of Tropical Forest Reaps Benefits,” Kristen Cole explains that the forest “regrowth can happen without planting trees, through the spontaneous process of natural regeneration” (Cole). Natural regeneration occurs eventually and will allow trees to regrow in the forest without someone spending too much money on planting trees that would replace the deforested ones. The growing of new trees will allow the forest to stay healthy since it will replace old ones that may have lacked nutrients as it aged.
• Sustainable forestry the practice of regulating usage of forest resources in such a way that the forest wealth is preserved. • Indiscriminate tree cutting is replaced by selective logging wherein you remove certain trees but preserve the balance of the woodland. Also young trees are allowed to mature before they are harvested, protected forests are created and trees are planted to expand forestlands. • A sustainable forest contains trees of all ages and different species. • In sustainable forestry, the first activity is to survey the land that's part of the sustainable forestry project.
There are so many rare and important species of flora and fauna in the Daintree Rainforest. Even the small shrubs, to ginormous Red Cedar trees, every single plant is important to the Rainforest. We need to stop anymore extinction of plants and animal species, so that we can keep them for generations to generations. Although people are logging for our modern benefits, the amount of trees being cut should tremendously be decreased. So to keep making paper, people should recycle more.
It makes sense to recycle; it saves trees and our rainforests. If we work together we can make a difference. We can make a change for the better. The rainforests need our help; the animals of the rainforests need our help. They can’t speak for themselves.
This includes forests or ecosystems that are presumed to be of 'high conservation value' are protected from palm oil plantations, potential timer industries or deforestation. Collaborating with timber organisations in North Sumatra, specifically the rain-forests which are located on Lake Toba and the town of Medan, to reduce potential negative effects on habitats and the specific Sumatran Orangutan population. For instance, various studies suggest that orangutans can survive in cleared forests if the extent of damage and impact is mitigated and diminished through actions such as selective logging, such as ensuring that a number of trees are left for this species to thrive as well as ensuring that fruit trees are still available. Mitigating human and orangutan interaction. Working with local governments, various timber, palm oil and logging organisations on practical methods to ensure that orangutans are kept out of these plantations.
It is easy to think that as an individual one has extremely limited power over the situation, however through wonderful organisations such as the WWF we are able to stand united to reduce deforestation, and finally boost the sustainability of the earth’s resources by a significant amount. Every small bit counts! Be a smart customer when shopping for anything made of wood, like furniture, as it is often made of trees from the Amazon rainforest. Be aware of where your meat, coffee or shampoo comes from, because if deforestation continues as it is today, you might one day not have the privilege of enjoying it
There would not be an argument to why people should find solutions for CCD and protecting honeybees from parasites, but someone could argue on the effects of reducing pesticide use. Pesticides are major part of keeping crops from getting eaten by insects. Farmers uses many pesticides on their crops If the world can limit pesticide use, destroy parasites, and help reduce CCD, it will be a much better resolution so we can keep honeybees. The solution that has been presented is the best solution possible. Using pesticides more will not outweigh the existence of honeybees.
The three groups are ecological services, social benefits and biological resources. Tropical forests most importantly provide us with some critical life sustaining ecological services. Services like oxygen production, water purification, climate moderation, conversion of solar energy from the sun into carbohydrates and proteins, soil formation and greenhouse gas removal (Biodiversity BC, 2007). Though these services can be provided by green plants in general, through its large presence all around the world, tropical forests play a key part in contributing and maintaining these ecological
From the look of things, I have found that these impacts cause more harm than good. If the water cycle is disturbed, my farming processes will be negatively affected. The first effect is that, the washing away of a fertile top soil would lead to a poor harvest, since all the required nutrients for the crops to grow would be washed away. The loss of fertile soil can lead to an increase in the cost of production due to the use of inorganic fertilizer. The other effect is that, if the water cycle is disturbed, the amount of rainfall per season will be affected which will also affect agricultural production since the processes of the water cycle have been disturbed.
