    Peatland plays an important ecological and economic role in many countries all over the world. At the same time, due to various human and non-human interventions, peatland is also a fragile ecosystem, which is currently facing severe problems, such as deforestation, fires, and peat subsidence. Peat subsidence is currently one of the most severe but least recognized by: 1. Concerns over Brazil's Amazon rain forests, which shrank by about 18% in the last century due to deforestation, have been growing steadily in Brazil and worldwide: The Amazon is home to between one-third and one-half of the world's remaining tropical forest land.

[Didier Babin; Unesco.; CIRAD (Organization);] -- Against a backdrop of climate change the known interactions between forest cover and climate have prompted widespread condemnation of forest losses, but does the irreversible destruction of forests.

Despite continued forest conversion and degradation, forest cover is increasing in countries across the globe. New forests are regenerating on former agricultural land, and forest plantations are being established for commercial and restoration purposes.

Plantations and restored forests can improve ecosystem services and enhance biodiversity conservation, but will not match the Cited by: While many studies of tropical deforestation neglect the indigenous people of the forests, this book illuminates the insights local people have into conservation of their ecosystems, the effects of habitation on those ecosystems, and the impact of development and natural resource depletion on their by:   Tropical forests around the world play a key role in the global carbon cycle and harbour more than half of the species worldwide.

However, increases in land use during the past decades caused unprecedented losses of tropical forest. Scientists at the Helmholtz Centre for. Introduction. Conversion of land cover is one of the main causes of global environmental change. Of all land conversions, tropical deforestation has received the majority of attention as this process jeopardizes the most species rich habitats on the planet and the global carbon cycle (Le Quéré et al., ).While it is crucial to monitor the spatial extent of deforestation, most studies Author: Martha Bonilla-Moheno, T.
