Soil erosion destruction. Soils (and the nutrients in them) are exposed to the sun’s heat. When forests are destroyed, the atmosphere, water bodies, and the water table are all affected . Loss of Biodiversity.
Natural disturbances like wildfire, insects or disease are often mistaken for causes of deforestation. In fact in Canada, forests – particularly in the boreal zone – rely on disturbances to renew and revitalize themselves.
Also, do wildfires count as deforestation?
Wildfires add to deforestation as well. This is inevitable as many fires are caused by lightning.. But in 2019, there was a huge increase in the number of fires in the Amazon rainforest.
This begs the query “How does deforestation cause wildfires?”
Human activities near or within forested areas are the number one cause of forest fires. Lightning is the biggest natural cause of forest fires. Most natural fires are usually monitored and allowed to burn, with the aim of balancing a forest’s ecology.
Why deforestation can actually be good for the environment?
Young forests usually experience a denser packing of trees than mature forests. A few additional ideas to think about are more biodegradable materials, or increased vegetation and reduced factory farming.
Deforestation happens all over the world, most notably in the Amazon and Congo. Because forests cover roughly 30 percent of the world, many other areas face deforestation, including Canada, Ivory Coast, Indonesia and the United States, according to the World Resources Institute.
This begs the inquiry “What are the bad things about deforestation?”
Deforestation is a very bad thing since it reduces BIODIVERSITY. Biodiversity, also known as WILDLIFE is put into grave danger when forest are destroyed since most of the world’s animals live in rain-forests. If deforestation is not stopped soon, then there is a high chance of a lot of the wildlife to be extinct. As said before when you cut down trees,.
