African rain forests have fewer epiphytes than other rain forests, perhaps because many of them became extinct during the successive dry periods that were a feature of the last Ice Age, whose impact was more severe there than elsewhere. Throughout history, humans have encroached on rain forests for living space, timber, and agricultural purposes. Journal of Environmental Biology 34 (3), 623-633. get abstract / full text Schaubroeck T, Alvarenga RAF, Verheyen K, Muys B, Dewulf J 2013.

Political authorities may also channel more resources into projects such as monuments or elaborate ceremonies to glorify the image of the civilization. Some taxonomists recognize only four species of spider monkeys, including A. geoffroyi, A. hybridus, A. belzebuth, and A. paniscus, leaving A. fusciceps as a subspecies of A. geoffroyi and A. marginatus and A. chamek as subspecies of A. belzebuth (Collins & Dubach 2000).

For three weeks, my field assistant and I trekked miles and miles over Banda Village, asking farmers about their cropping systems, what crops were planted, what wild animals were seen eating the crops on their farms, and during what season crop raiding by chimpanzees was the highest and lowest. Logging degrades natural habitats and has knock-on effects for many aspects of forest ecology, increasing the risk of fire, allowing the establishment of invasive species, and reducing biodiversity.

In order to fix this poverty factor rich countries should ensure better forest funding that would give poor people enough money to survive without clearing forests. The biggest drive to move people came at the beginning of the 1980s when more than 60,000 families were being moved each year at an estimated cost of US$10,000 per family. Tropical agricultural hydrology and sustainability of agricultural systems: the West Bank project (1978–1988): a ten year watershed management project in southwestern Nigeria.

If I did not, I would soon find the ocean pouring through the holes left by the stolen rivets and very shortly after, my ship, my crew and myself would disappear beneath the waves. If only their efforts could be integrated and co-ordinated into a worldwide New Life Network, they could give rise to an NGO — a Non-Governmental Organisation — which could speak with real authority in the United Nations. It was followed by Slovenia, Sweden, and Taiwan.

Forest degradation may result in lower future biomass accumulation in recovering forests owing to a shift in species composition (i.e., ecosystem state; see Criterion 2) and tree size class structure, loss of highly functional species (Díaz and Cabido 2001, Russell et al. 2010), and/or a reduction at the landscape scale of mature forests (for example, Kirby and Potvin 2007, Lewis et al. 2009). Celebrate and be inspired by a snapshot of the Academy's more than 150 year legacy of scientific research of Chicago and the region.

In 1986, there were 12 wildlife management areas, occupying 6.800 square kilometres (2,600 square miles) of land and approximately 1,100 square kilometres (425 square miles) of marine and coastal resources. The maps for these regions were produced from a number of more general- ized sources. It is far more than protecting individual species of plants and animals, more than keeping seas and freshwaters clean, more than caring for soils, more than protecting forest watersheds to ensure future watei- supplies, more than setting aside key sites as protected areas.
