The land desertification can be a huge area and it is almost cannot be able to control. In addition, it is not only threatening the people and animals in the Amazon, the world is also threatened by deforestation. Thus, deforestation is one of the biggest problems in the world that people have to consider because it costs three main long term effects: land desertification, species extinction and climate transformation. The research paper will discuss and consider the long term negative effect in the Amazon rainforest which is caused by deforestation. First, the paper will present the cause and effect of land deforestation.
Deforestation of rain forests decreases the amount of rubber South America supplies, and businesses will soon have to find a new supply of this resource. The plants found in the rain forests can be useful to everyone around the world. The Kayapo, a people of the Amazon, are dependent upon plants in the Amazon. A research team came into the area that the Kayapo people inhabit. A team of scientists researched 1,200 plants in the area.
Deforestation is the elimination of existing trees from the earth; attributable factors include urbanization, logging, ranching, and farming and to some extent land speculation. Land speculation can be included as cleared land is more valuable than forested land. Deforestation, done in the name of progress, and the long-term, devastating effects of it, is killing our planet. To understand the effects of deforestation one must understand the reasoning behind the decision to clear forestlands. Only in recent history, have studies been conducted to measure the impact that deforestation has placed upon the Earth.

The opinions and values about the devastation of our natural rain forests vary between each individual. The amount of thought processes and the amount of work needed is, honestly, unbelievable. But, it is not the decision that the younger generation has to make. It is up to those older, more responsible, and actually in that field of study. However, it does not stop this generation from expressing their opinions about the destruction of the rainforests.

By 2008, more than 17% of the pre-1970 forests had been cleared. Deforestation has become a huge problem, and the Amazonia is probably the forest which is the most in danger since 2000. One of the most important causes of tree cleaning in the world is the agricultural expansion, which means the development of culture for industrial breeding, and the work on mines and precious metals. Also, the illegal exploitation of wood is a big deal, and it affects the whole world. For example, according to the WWF**, one fourth of the exotic wood importation in Europe is from illegal exploitation.
(1, forest facts) Certainly those statistics are riveting and extremely frightening! There are several questions which must be posed in order to more clearly understand the significance of the numbers. Where are the locations of the most rapid deforestation?... ... middle of paper ... ...ra Tangley, Trees of Life: Saving Tropical Forests and their Biological Wealth;Beacon Press, 1991. Annotation 2.
1) First, we will talk about the effects of deforestation and why it's a problem. 2) Second, we will learn about the many causes of deforestation. 3) Lastly, we will cover how to solve this problem. According to National Geographic 2014, Deforestation is clearing Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land. Deforestation occurs all around the world and tropical rainforests are primarily targeted.
