Transcript of Deforestation of Temperate Deciduous Forests

Deforestation
What's the Problem?
- Millions of trees are being cut down faster than they can grow back

- Both people and animals depend on large forests across the globe to supply the earth's population with oxygen

- The roots of trees stabilize the earths crust by “holding on” to soil and preventing erosion.
How can YOU help out?
Deforestation of Temperate
Deciduous Forests

- If deforestation continues, the deciduous tree population can decrease dramatically until it is completely extinct.

- Because of this, oxygen levels can decrease, affecting ecosystems and living organisms.

- Deforestation is a major cause of global warming and global warming has definite effects on earth's deciduous forests. As the temperature increases, less and less precipitation falls on the forest.

- All pollutants from fuels we burn are destroying forests, killing our wildlife, and poisoning our soil.

- to cut down and clear away the trees or forests
- One way humans can help reduce deforestation is by eco-forestry.

- We are currently trying to increase awareness of deforestation by promoting the recycling of paper.

- The replanting of trees is also increasing among the world because people are realizing our deciduous forests are diminishing.
- A major human influence of the amount of trees being cut down is overpopulation

- Increased population has resulted in an increased demand for goods such as paper and wooden furniture

- Often when people use these paper goods they will toss them in the trash rather than recycling them for further use

- Human disregard for the environment is becoming more evident as the years go on and the number of trees decrease at an alarming rate.

- In the last 5,000 years, humans have reduced forests from roughly 50% of the Earth's land surface to less than 20%

- As a result of deforestation and poor management, about 10% of the World's 800 - 100,000 tree species are in danger of extinction

How do humans interfere?
What is the environmental impact?
- Deforestation greatly impacts the environment in a negative way.

- Many species of animals live in temperate deciduous forests and they are not able to survive deforestation.

- Deforestation causes areas of soil that were once moist to become dry and barren because the trees no longer provide protection from the sun.

- Trees are important in removing greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. Deforestation leads to larger amounts of greenhouse gasses, increasing global warming.
What are the consequences?
- The word "deciduous" means falling off or out of a certain season.

- This explains why deciduous forests are forests in which the leaves fall off of the trees when winter comes.
