Deforestation In the Amazon Rainforest. By Anna Rivero Brynne Bartiromo Amy Zhuang . What is Deforestation?. Deforestation is when a forest is wiped out and the population of trees decrease. Deforestation is mostly a human caused issue. How? Why? .
By Anna Rivero
Why- Deforestation is happening because there is need for
more land for farming and mining. More demand for
lumber from the trees. Logging in the Amazon is used
for roads, and building materials.
* every second one and a half acres of the rainforest are cut.
The deforestation is mostly a biotic factor because it is a human impact. Also, the impact of humans may also lead to some abiotic factors.
Some examples of factors can include logging and substinence farming as mentioned before.
Abiotic Factors: (nonliving factors that affect the ecosystem)
-water :The human impacts are affecting the trees in which keep the water cycle flowing. This hurts the condition of the rainforest greatly.
-temperature :Because of the tree loss, the local climate is drying. This also affects living conditions in the rainforest.Biotic/abiotic factors
-Scientists believe that over 137 species of plants and animals are being lost every single day due to rainforest deforestation.
A new program will be proposed called the Amazon Rainforest Organization. This Organization will support the rebirth of the Amazon Rainforest. The main focus of the project is to replant some of the destructed land. For example, we will replant some of some of the trees, and we will strive to preserve some land so that less of the rainforest will be cut down.
This organization will be funded by the government and by donations from anyone. This program will most likely be supported by the government because it will benefit not only the environment, but also the organisms that live there and even the people. As time progresses, the forest will eventually restore itself. More organisms will be able to settle in, and the resources will increase as the trees are restored. This will require national support because the resources from the rainforest is exported world wide.
