Although, a lot of the forests are being cut down by timber companies. This has been the main reason for the owl’s endangerment. The United States government declared the Northern Spotted Owl endangered in the year of 1990. This made it illegal to log in forests inhabited by the Northern Spotted Owl or thought to be inhabited. That created a debate between loggers and the United States government.
The Biodiversity of Yellowstone National Park Introduction Biodiversity is immense in Yellowstone National Park and has been the pinnacle for biodiversity in the United States for over a hundred years. Since Yellowstone is the summit for biodiversity, the need to keep the plants, animals, and natural features preserved and protected is essential. Biodiversity includes all living organisms on earth and Yellowstone National Park has species still living in its boundaries that have disappeared in other parts of the world due to development, habitat fragmentation, climate change, invasive species, and other posed threats. The park allows for scientists and visitors to learn about nature in a place largely free of human influence (US Department of the Interior, 2011). The mission of Yellowstone National Park is to encourage awareness and application of wide-ranging and high-caliber scientific work on the region’s natural and cultural resources.
In my personal opinion I believe it is possible for a creature like Bigfoot to exist. There is no reason why they can’t they have plenty of food, shelter, water and pretty much whatever they need but. Also there is no 100% proof that there is a bigfoot out there. Most sightings of Bigfoot occur in the Northwest but the creatures have been reported all over the country. There are many native myths and legends of wild men in the woods, but Bigfoot sightings have been around for only about 50 years.
Also they used trees from the nearby woods to support the walls from caving in. Since it was such hard labor it took a lot of time to mine, so the impact was really not that recognizable until the new machinery came out. Once they came into the picture the slow process of doing it by hand became obsolete. This lead to a process called mountain top removal, which is basically what it says. It completely takes off the tops and pushes the excess debris off the side of the mountain.
Just prepared. North America is home to three species of bears. But because most of us aren’t likely to head out for a day hike in the Arctic, I’ll skip polar bears and focus instead on grizzlies (also known as brown bears) and black bears. • Grizzly Bears Range: Grizzlies have been eliminated from 98 percent of their native range in the American West and the Great Plains, according to the environmental organization Defenders of Wildlife. They’re now found from Alaska (the population
However due to illegal logging and the government’s agricultural policy, it had resulted in the loss of many forests. Without these forests there will be no vegetation to intercept the rainwater. Besides that since Thailand is geographically sloped at angle without trees to secure the soil together, it will increase the chances of soil erosion so the soil and mud will be washed into rivers causing them to be shallower. Furthermore the bare slopes that remained will result in increased surface runoff. Similarly in Boscastle, farming in upper course had led to deforestation and removal of hedgerows decreasing the amount of interception from higher ground.
Tropical rainforests are rapidly disappearing in a way that will greatly have an impact on planet earth. Since 1950, half of all tropical rainforests are gone because deforestation, mining and many other things are taking nature away from us. In a few decades, it has been estimated that the rest will be gone if we measures are not taken soon. The WWF (World Life Federation) oversees this ecological threat. They are working to save nature by helping people live in harmony with nature.
Nowadays these cute creatures have been unexpectedly declining in population because of the many challenges in which they have to adapt. Many of these challenges like having to live close to human communities and devouring cattle and sheep, running away from poachers and hunters, starving from food shortage ad even having difficulty to find a mate is caused by humans and their actions. Many of these challenges are brought by specifically by urbanization and human growing population. Urbanization requires many homes to be built, farms to be enlarged for agriculture to feed the human population. Therefore, deforestation sabotages habitat loss, insufficient food for the jaguars and other carnivores.
These findings can conclude that with increased exposure to deforestation plants and animals are limited in habitat reformation and thus cause problematic extinction rates for the future. Based on these concerns I can attempt to answer the question: how does deforestation influence future extinction rates and challenges on major plant and animal species in tropical forests? The hypothesis for several authors in the Conservation Biology stated, “We expect many of the hotspot endemics to have either become extinct or- because much of the habitat loss is recent-to be threatened with extinction” (Brooks et al., 2002). With this hypothesis I can infer an answer prompted by experimental results to relate to habitat loss due to deforestation and extinctions in the future. The vast areas of forests are known as a “hotspot” of the world which means that within it is a vast amount of a variety of species and organisms from plants and animals, containing 1500 epidemic plant species.
Overgrazing comes about when the livestock cows, horses, and goats are allowed to eat all the vegetation on the land. Overgrazing can also be caused by the land getting very little rain fall. This leaves the land lacking in nutrients and when it becomes more dusty the wind will come and blow away what it can then the rain follows washing away the rest of the top soil in the water runoff. The third kind of soil erosion is Deforestation. Deforestation is caused by big logging companies coming into the forest, cutting down all the trees, and stripping the land of the remaining vegetation.
