What impact can deforestation have on the biogeochemical cycles that operate on Earth?
Well think of it this way would u be effected by gas and build up of gases so so will biogeochemical
According to historians, the Mayas contributed to their own empirical demise by cutting down more trees during periods of drought in order to expand their impact. Experts suggest this contributed to deforestation because the trees could not replenish themselves during the drought season and the Mayan demands.
Milankovitch cycles are orbital cycles affecting earth's insolation. There have been a long series of ice ages closely tied to these orbital cycles, and in fact earth should even now be ever so slightly and gradually cooling towards another ice age which should begin in about 50,000 years. Not particularly soon. The fact earth continues warming at a rapid rate suggests significant environmental impact from some outside source.
The earth has undergone many natural cycles of warming and cooling, to which humans contributed nothing. Current climate change, however, is largely the result of greenhouse gas emissions as a byproduct of the consumption of fossil fuel, and to a lesser extent deforestation. The fewer people there were, the lower the greenhouse gas emission rate would be. Earth could more easily absorb the impact of half a billion people burning fossil fuel than of seven…
