Presentation Transcript

  1. Consequences of lost of Biodiversity on Tropical Rainforests Francisco Brenes Laurens van Veen

  2. Decrease on forest layers (flora may even suffer extinctions)

  3. Makesecosystemlessstable and more vulnerable todiseases, competition, and extinction(ecosystemwouldcollapse)

  4. Depletion of theregion’sgeneticbank (manyspecies are endemictotherainforestareas)

  5. Increased levels of CO2 (higher amount of greenhouse gases-> higher Global Warming)

  6. Reduced levels of O2 (rate of photosynthesis is reduced)

  7. Decreased precipitation due to a reduced vegetation cover

  8. Reduced interception capacity leading to greater likelihood of flooding

  9. The ultimate alteration of the Amazon’s and other tropical rainforest’s discharge regime and sediment transport pattern

  10. Severe soil exhaustion and erosion

  11. The adverse impact on the indigenous population

  12. THANKS!
