Deforestation, or “the cutting down and removal of all or most of the trees in a forested area,” has caused an adverse effect on the natural habitats, or “the natural environment of an organism”, of plant and animal life(“Deforestation”; Random House). Besides the destruction of the animals’ homes, deforestation has caused and will continue to cause an increase in soil erosion, flooding, and carbon emissions ("Amazon Rainforest: Consequences."). Deforestation ravages not only the land, but every living creature and their habitats within. I propose that we solve this growing problem by making and enforcing stricter regulations on the field of deforestation. One problem caused by deforestation is an increase in soil erosion.
These contributes greatly to pollution as trees are removed from their natural habitat and are used, the natural resources become depleted, therefore the environment become compromised and such problems as extinction of species (through haunting for food and lifestyle). Land disturbance and habitat disturbance are two other factors that are caused by
This unnatural extinction of species endangers the world's food supply, threatens many human resources and has profound implications for biological diversity. Another negative environmental impact of deforestation is that it causes climate changes all over the world. As we learned in elementary school, plant life is essential to life on earth as it produces much of the oxygen that is required for humans and other organisms to breathe. The massive destruction of trees negatively effects the quantity and quality of the air we breathe which has direct repercussions on the quantity and quality of life among both humans and animals alike. With this reduced amount of vital plant life comes the increase of carbon dioxide levels in the earth's atmosphere.
Pollutants, such as sulphur, affected vegetation in many areas. The pollution is also damaging water and animals. Acid rain and forest fires also causes of deforestation. Deforestation can occur in many ways, natural and unnatural. Logging takes a huge place in deforestation.
Secondly, acid rain damages the trees through the soil by releasing metals that harm them even further (Lucas, 72). Acid rain makes the trees lose their leaves, so when the trees try to regrow their leaves, buds come instead, this process is called a panic shoot (M. 15). Large land areas which used to be covered with forests are now gone, dead or dying (Baines, 21). Around the 1980’s more than half Kotto 2 of the trees in Germany had signs of acid rain damage (Edmonds, 14). Now it is known that acid rain is one of the biggest contributing factors in the death and deterioration of nature.
On the other hand, environmentalists think using too much forests or natural resources for any demands or commodities will impact native animals and plants life. Animals and plants habitat will be extinct soon if we still do cutting off the trees space in the world. First of all, deforestation is one of the biggest issues in the world. There are many problems as the result of deforestation. First impact is pollution gases, these gases will be affect the atmosphere in the world because trees always absorb carbon dioxide gas which is really benefit for trees (National Geographic, n.d., pp.
When a work force or group of people start to clear out a forest, they are taking all food and resources from organisms that live in the region and wiping out the homes of many insects and other tree dwellers. Another main cause for negative effects on the ecosystem is pollution. There are many types of pollution, simply including water pollution, air pollution, and land pollution. Pollution is caused on a day to day basis, whether it be littering or even burning coal. Littering can harm organisms by entanglement or toxic hazards.
Introduction Deforestation is a highly controversial issue and occurs around the world at an unprecedented magnitude. It is vast as well as a wide occurrence. Climate change on the other hand, is an enormous crisis in today’s world, and deforestation plays a critical role in it. The Britannica Encyclopedia defines deforestation as the loss, clearing, cutting or destruction of naturally occurring forests, mainly due to human actions; deforestation occurs as humans need it for logging, agriculture, clearing land for livestock grazing, cutting trees for fuel, mining or oil extraction, urban or economic development and population expansion. Being that deforestation has become a growing global issue with economic and environmental consequences many experts such as scientists, scholars, physicists and organizations have presented problems and solutions to deforestation.
The destruction of the environment is a major crisis in the world today. The mistreatment of natural resources, pollution, and over population has negatively affected the quality of the Earth. All forms of life are suffering from the environmental degradation. Cities and surrounding areas suffer from poor water and air quality. Global warming is displacing many species out of their natural environment.
Cutting down the canopy is messing up the rainforest. It’s letting heat in and the cool air out, therefore damaging plants and animals of the rainforest with the change in the environment. The huge trees such as the mahogany and the teak get cut down and used for furniture all around the world. The smaller trees are then used for charcoal. Large areas of the rainforest are cut in one go.
