All of these birds are now hard to find in the wild. Some of these projects involve replanting by local communities, and developing sustainable use systems. It was a little too scientifically based for me and a majority of the concepts that were explained in depth were things I had learned about previously and didn't necessarily enhance my understanding of the topics. They are right to say that the human impact on the planet is enormous and irreversible.

Forests are home to over 50% of the world’s land-based animal and plant life. They directly provide food, shelter, fuel and a source of income to a billion people whose livelihoods depend on them. And forests also benefit our environment by regulating the climate and water cycles and preventing soil erosion. The world has lost half its forests, and only a tenth of what remains is protected , e.g. Life Magazine (June 4, 1956) As well as being home to countless plants, animals and fungi, forests are extremely important to human wellbeing, providing vital ecological, economic, social and health benefits Life Magazine, September 11, download pdf download pdf. There are likely to be many more species to be recorded as more research is carried out and new discoveries are made (for example, 31 undescribed species of amphibian are known from Ranomafana, awaiting scientific recognition)., of which 84% occur nowhere else in the world (i.e. are endemic) National Geographic Vol. 132 read online National Geographic Vol. 132 No. 2.

Another was Len Webb a botanist, who became one of Australia’s leading authorities on rainforests. Len Webb first worked as a clerk-typist for Government Botanist, Cyril White in the Herbarium of Brisbane’s old Botanic Gardens and from him learned of man’s deep involvement in nature , cited: LIFE Magazine - September 18, 1944

At the landscape scale, there are system-specific and species-specific fragmentation thresholds that, once surpassed, cause significant loss of interior forest species (e.g., Andrén 1994, Santos et al. 2008, Swift and Hannon 2010, Pardini et al. 2010) , cited: LIFE Magazine - Monthly issue: download online When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured The Pine Barrens download epub

People also value paper and books for writing on. People couldn't really live without paper, but we could try to cut down less trees. Redwood trees can be found in California. They are the tallest trees and among the largest living organisms. They are also worth ten-million dollars and make amazing lumber wood. One way that redwoods are like humans other than the fact that they are alive, is that when you cut them down, it looks like they are bleeding , cited: Hiking North Carolina's read here read here.

The potential for forest regrowth can be greatly reduced when pastures are reformed through bulldozing or are used intensively, through a combination of high grazing density (>1 animal/hectare for a period of eight years), repeated burning and weeding, and herbicide application.

But why in this case, Wells asks, would any community move from hunting and gathering to agriculture Life Magazine December 1, 1967 But the notion has gained currency in mainstream organizations like the Smithsonian Institution and the United Nations, which in 2005 concluded that new forests were “increasing dramatically” and “undervalued” for their environmental benefits. The United Nations is undertaking the first global catalog of the new forests, which vary greatly in their stage of growth. “Biologists were ignoring these huge population trends and acting as if only original forest has conservation value, and that’s just wrong,” said Joe Wright, a senior scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute here, who set off a firestorm two years ago by suggesting that the new forests could substantially compensate for rain forest destruction. “Is this a real rain forest?” Dr online.
