Coming from a different direction, some criticism from the Deep Ecology movement argues against conflating "wilderness" with "wilderness reservations", viewing the latter term as an oxymoron that, by allowing the law as a human construct to define nature, unavoidably voids the very freedom and independence of human control that defines wilderness. [3] True wilderness requires the ability of life to undergo speciation with as little interference from humanity as possible. [3] Your browser does not support HTML5 video online. Under RCP 2.6, fossil carbon emissions are dramatically curtailed, limiting global warming to an average of 2ºC. RPC 8.5 is a high-emissions, business-as-usual scenario. In both cases, there is strong agreement among models that the Amazon will warm over the 21st century Rain Forest Secrets. Flooding: Flooding is a natural event in some lowland rainforests, as in the varzea forests of the Amazon Basin, where many riparian (riverside) trees and plants spend months partially or wholly submerged during the rainy season. These plants are adapted to the flood cycle and are undamaged by long periods of submersion. Unusual flooding (often caused by human activity), however, can destroy the forest along riverbanks, leading to succession. d Time Magazine September 18 1989 Torching the Amazon Can the Rain Forest be Saved?.

This tends to create an acid soil condition that discourages the lush non-woody plant growth that is found in mesic forests National Geographic Magazine, March 1971 (Vol. 139, No. 3). The plants and animals that used to live in these forests either die or must find a new forest to call their home. Humans are the main cause of rainforest destruction. We are cutting down rainforests for many reasons, including: wood for both timber and making fires; agriculture for both small and large farms; land for poor farmers who don't have anywhere else to live; extraction of minerals and energy Squirrel Monkeys (Jungle Babies of the Amazon Rain Forest). Deciduous trees lose their leaves in winter. Temperate forests have a wide range of temperatures that correlate with the distinctive seasons. Temperatures range from hot in the summer with highs of 86 degrees Fahrenheit, to extremely cold in the winter with lows of - 22 degrees Fahrenheit National Geographic Magazine - August 1896 - Vol. VII, No. 8. The five countries with the largest rainforest areas are also among the world's most heavily indebted countries, and pressure to cut and clear the rainforests to finance debt repayment has intensified. The conditions imposed by the International Monetary Fund often force heavily indebted countries to sell their natural resources far in excess of sustainable exploitation.
