Not only are mangroves cut down to provide land to develop along the coastline, the larger trees are used to build the buildings, and the thinner poles/branches are used for roofing purposes. The total vegetation density, including trees, shrubs, herbs and seedlings has been estimated to be around 240,000 individuals per hectare, of which 95% comprise individuals of the ground layer below 1m in height. The more trained eyes watching for invasive species, the better our chances of lessening or avoiding damage to our native landscape.

So, a credit gives the owner the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide. Under the Kyoto Protocol, countries must reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide by 5% below the 1990 levels before 2012 (Barkmann, 2007). Through conservation or reforestation of the rainforest, countries can receive carbon credits. Recycling is a great way of slowing deforestation.

Potential for storage of 80,000 gallons per acre, at late season, is a significant matter, and while removal of one large tree per acre would have only insignificant consequence, each dead tree removed would be cumulative in its effect on soil moisture and the hydrologic cycle. Information on soil moisture capacity to influence the climate is basic; e.g., one simulation of the climate, circa 1992, has been criticized as "highly simplified" for reasons including that, in addition to ignoring the vital role played by vegetation, it also assumes that soil moisture is uniform across the globe (Wood et al, 1992) National Geographic Magazine - May 1995 - Vol. 187 No. 5.

But a transition to a less-productive, more fire-prone ecosystem could turn this rainforest into a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. “What’s interesting about tropical forests is they play a role in both driver and response [to climate change],” Florida State University tropical ecologist Stephanie Pau told Gizmodo. “Tropical forests store a lot of carbon and we’re losing them on a huge scale.” Examining 321 Amazon forest plots since 1983, a study published in Nature concluded that the basin is soaking up less carbon every year than it used to National Geographic Map - Everest 50.
