Thank you also to Blue Ventures for project guidance and logistical support, and to all of the individuals who generously gave me their time in order for me to learn more about their respective organizations and projects. It is the rich industrialized countries that provide the demand that drives the tropical timber trade and the markets for the beef cattle that graze on pastures that were once rain forest. Just exactly how can this process be "sustained" when Borneo's biodiversity - much of which has not even been scientifically described yet - is destroyed forever for the sake of producing some throw-away products?

The multitrophic consequences of soil nutrient limitation to vertebrate communities are even less well understood, and no tropical forest study has been able to demonstrate a direct link between soil fertility and mammal biomass at regional scales. The Beech Scheme - This site contains material that largely supports the beech scheme -- a proposal to sustainably manage beech forests on 0.1 million hectares of New Zealand's 2.8 million hectare beech forest estate.

Today however, Singapore's primary forests are very different from the pristine forests in the rest of Southeast Asia because many of the large animal species are now extinct in Singapore. Every environmental problem identified at the original Earth Summit has gotten worse in the intervening twenty years, often very much worse, and there is no sign of this changing. Although climbing plants occur in most plant families, the majority are found in the tropics.

The incredible valleys, rugged mountains, gorgeous coastal scenery and exceptional beauty of swiftly flowing rivers are superlatively wonderful. A very special thank you to the Tropical Resources Institute of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and especially donors to the F&ES Sri Lanka Program for Forest Conservation, whose generous support made this study possible. Whereas the reductionist mind-body, or human-earth split results in destruction of the environment to the detriment of humans as well as other living beings, the holistic view of deep ecology promotes healing of the planet, including an integrated human consciousness.

A "blowdown" is created when intense winds knock down shallow-rooted trees. Garay-Barayazarra and Puri (2011) researched how local cultural knowledge can be utilized in adaptation strategies for climate vulnerability. Demographic responses to natural and anthropogenic disturbances will differ among tree species (Körner 2004), potentially resulting in altered inter-specific competitive interactions. Located in the highlands, in the center of the country, where on a clear day you can see the Pacific and Caribbean from the same point, El Cope National Park is the site of the environmental field research methods.

Once underground, the scientists took an incredible hike through a long-gone prehistoric fossil forest, illuminated only by lights on their caps. As opposed to evergreen trees, deciduous trees have to regrow thousands of leaves every year. The global distribution of species richness in equatorial forests. More than half of the world's estimated ten million species of plants, animals and insects live in the tropical forest. Today, ∼15% of the continent is now considered to have been severely modified by intensive land use, with agricultural areas dominated by cattle grazing zones covering around 43% of the country and ‘improved’ pastures covering around 10% ( Deo 2011 ).
