Human Impact On The Animals And Plants In The Rain Forest

As human population grows the need for agriculture, energy and development space increases with it. Tropical rainforests cover a massive amount of the world’s tree surface, each year over 90,000 square miles of the forests are harvested for human use. This deforestation has worried environmentalists because of the release of carbon from the machinery and the vegetation. Tropical Rainforests harbor 50% of world’s biodiversity, the massive deforestation of the forest has caused the total land mass to go 15 million km squared to about 8 million km squared, this is nearly half; it is estimated that nearly 2% of the rainforest is lost annually. Furthermore, Approximately 137 species are lost in this biome per day, including both species of plants and animals and insects.

Human's Economic and Industrial Impact

The lumber, agriculture, and mining industries are major impacts on the tropical rainforest. In mining, large areas of forest are cleared, and roads are built to access the mines. This greatly affects the diversity in the area because of the loud construction noises as well as pollution. The lumber and agriculture industries also have a very adverse affect on tropical rainforests. This is chiefly due to the fact that the soil fertility is only good enough to grow crops for a few years after it has been cleared. This leads to farmers clearing more and more forest each year to satisfy the needs of consumers.
