Biomes: Deciduous Forests


Deforestation is a huge problem, areas of forests the size of Panama are lost every year. all forests could vanish in 100 years, maybe faster at the current rate of deforestation. Deforestation has many negative effects on the environment, the most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. 70% of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes.

Deforestation causes climate change. Forest soils are moist, but without the trees covering the ground from the sun the soil will dry out. Trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapor back into the atmosphere. Without trees many forest lands can become barren deserts.
