What is erosion of the Pituitary fossa in human skull and why it is caused?
The pituitary fossa is that part of the skull that lies beneath the pituitary gland. Erosion, or thinning, of this bone is a common result of a variety of health conditions. There are a number of small cavities in this region, so if any swelling occurs in this region then there is a large pressure build up, which can cause the fossa to be eroded. Two examples of conditions that might cause erosion of the fossa include a pituitary tumour or nasal polyps.

Human beings may cause erosion by activities such as farming orgames. They may also cause erosion by cutting down trees and othervegetation that act as windbreakers.
there are many human activities which cause soil erosion here is one of them; deforestation: cutting down of trees on large scale cause the degradation of soil because when r…ain comes and there are trees trees do not allow soil to move from its place .

Erosion is a continual process, and it can be caused naturally or through artificial means. While many people associate erosion with negative things like land slides and poor …soil conditions, it is an important part of the geologic processes which make the Earth what it is. As soil and rock are slowly worn down, they cycle through the Earth's crust and the general environment, causing a constantly shifting and varied surface. .

One of the most powerful causes of erosion is water. Water is sometimes called the universal solvent, because it is so effective at dissolving and changing things. Rain and runoff contribute to erosion, as do glaciers, snow, and ice. Ice can be particularly insidious, because it will literally rip rock and soil apart as it expands and contracts. Many seashores distribute spectacular examples of water erosion, in the form of huge terraces of rocks slowly worn away by the ocean. Tectonic movement can also contribute to erosion, as can the wind. Wind transports materials from one place to another, and in extremely windy locations it can contribute a powerful scouring force to the process of erosion. Materials also naturally tend to slide down a slope, in a process called mass wasting. This downward pull is what causes mountains to slowly melt into hills and plains, and it is constantly happening, although not always in the spectacular form of a landslide. Humans can also bring about erosion, usually through poor land management. Overgrazing, for example, is a serious cause of erosion. Cows in particular are known for causing serious problems, especially along river banks. Areas which have been heavily grazed for centuries show clear signs of erosion and soil exhaustion due to the demands made on the soil. Deforestation can also cause erosion, since it strips the protective surface plants and trees from the soil. The soil is no longer held in by roots and plant matter, so it slides away in rainy periods.
by growing crops to absorb the moisture in the sod which then tuned into dust.

There are many ways, many very indirect. The chief cause is the cutting covering or destruction of plant life.
By lumbering and deforestation without replanting of trees. Also by construction works on hills, ridges, mountains and other landforms thereby disturbing and affecting its sta…bility.

The answer to this scientific question is kicking or building.
Land use changes such as deforestation and clearing of natural land to create farms may be the largest contributor to soil erosion. Although natural causes such as runoff of r…ainwater especillay in slopy areas also cause soil erosion. When trees are cut off and land is cleared there is no tree or shrub roots to hold the soil on the surface and when it rains or is windy soil is eroded.
Farming, logging, mining and land development for human habitation are the usual suspects.
There any many activities that cause erosion. Deforestation, littering etc are some of them.
In Erosion and Weathering
People cut down trees' roots which make the soil stay on the ground. Polluting the air can make acid rain, which can destroy marble statues and stuff.
