Why does the deforestation of a tropical rainforest's affect the many species of plants?
Deforestation is by definition the killing of plants.
Tropical rainforests are the areas with the most species of all types of plants and animals on earth, many of which have not yet been discovered. Tropical rainforests have an extremely thin layer of soil that is easily degraded and/or eroded if the forest around it is removed. The forest is being cut down every day for this purpose, even though agriculture only works for a few years before the soil is destroyed and the…
How might the extinction of plants species from a tropical rain forest affect animals that live in the forest?
There is deforestation going on in Ecuador and oil spills are very dangerous there. Many spills kill animals and affect thousands of human beings. Oil spills also damage the rainforests which causes the deforestation. Deforestation is also caused by large forest fires which spread very quickly on land.
Deforestation negatively affects the ecosystem. Deforestation causes loss of homes and for animals and indigenous people, and causes flooding. Many ingredients in medicines are found in the rainforests, and without these ingredients these medicines will be gone forever. The trees in the rainforest give off much-needed oxygen so animals and humans can survive.
It destroys trees, plants and animals and it takes away there homes/habitat. If we lose the tropical rain forest we could lose the discoveries of new medicines (the tropical rain forest is where we get most of our now used medicines today). Also we are polluting the rest of the forest and the earth with the gases the machines used to cut down trees. Short answer Deforestation destroys the forest and is not good.
