Protecting Forests in a Changing World Forests cover nearly one-third of the United States, accounting for more than 1 million square miles. Because of their vital role in carbon storage, nutrient cycling, and air and water purification, as well as in supplying habitat for wildlife, maintaining forest health is essential.

The book considers the temperate moist-coniferous forests of the US Pacific Northwest, but many of the concepts apply broadly to challenges in forest management in other regions and countries. In the US northwest, forest ecosystem management has been underway.

A study conducted for SOFO by the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre on trends in protected forest area by global ecological zones between and found that more than 30 percent of tropical rainforests, subtropical dry forests and temperate oceanic forests were within legally protected areas (IUCN categories I-VI.

There are many reasons why forests are an important feature for the environment and in our daily are fundamental life forms and provide for the continuity of the world’s biodiversity which is necessary for economic development, diversity of life forms, human livelihood, and environmental adaptive responses.

Climate change will make future efforts to restore and manage wetlands more complex. Wetland systems are vulnerable to changes in quantity and quality of their water supply, and. Forests, especially tropical forests, play an important role in global climate change.

Tree biomass stores carbon through photosynthesis, so deforestation contributes to carbon emissions. Tropical forests contain about 25% of the world’s carbon, and other forest regions of the world add another 20% of the world.

Forests are a great bulwark against climate change, so programs to reduce deforestation are important. Those efforts usually focus on stopping the destruction in. Table 1. Annual change in forest ar ea by region and subregion, (Source: Anon., ) South America with about four million hectares per year suffered the largest net loss of forests during the last decade followed by Africa with million hectares annually and the least Oceania with seven lakh hectares annually.

Forests are also a vital and rich habitat for wildlife. Earth is at the start of a sixth mass extinction event of species and the razing of forests and other ecosystems is the biggest contributor.

"The world changes and our conservation plans must change with it." ]30 THE FACES OF GLOBAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE PROTECTING THE FOREST RESOURCES While policymakers and the worId's leaders struggle to ad- dress the root causes of deforestation, successful projects around the world demonstrate that it is possible to reconcile economic development.

Here are a few basic deforestation facts that will give you some idea of just how much destruction our planet’s forests have endured to date: 1. Forests still cover about 30% of Earth’s land, but humans have been cutting them down at an increasingly alarming rate.

In the last 30 years, oversquare miles of forests have been lost. Over one billion people live in and around forests and depend on them for fuel, food and medicines.

And all of us use wood in our daily lives: in fact, global demand for timber products is expected to more than triple over the next three decades. Unfortunately, human impacts have already led to the loss of around 40% of the world’s forests.

Forests are habi-tat for many kinds of wildlife. Forests block the wind. Timber, grazing, recreation, water, minerals, fish, and wildlife are all examples of income-producing values of forests.

E-unit: Recognizing the Importance of Forests. If beech trees could read, they might wonder what the heck they ever did to deserve the recent headlines decrying their growth.

Forests cover approximately % of the Earth's surface. However, they once covered over 50%. Most people identify forests with trees, but the concept of the forest ecosystem reaches much further and includes many species, such as smaller plants, fungi, bacteria, insects, animals, as well as energy flow and nutrient cycling.

Luckily, a large percentage of people on Earth are still able to. Less than half of the world’s forests are still functioning as they should due to human meddling, according to a new study.

An international team of 47 scientists reveals per cent of the world’s forests have ecosystem integrity – meaning they’re free from human modification. Human modification includes industrial-scale logging, fragmentation by infrastructure, farming.

'We already see the initial signs of climate change, and fires are part of it," said Dr. Amber Soja, a biomass burning expert at the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA) in Hampton, Va.

And research suggests that a hotter Earth resulting from global warming will lead to more frequent and larger fires. Find facts, photos, information and history, travel videos, flags, and maps of countries and cities of the world from National Geographic.

Temperate forests cover about million km 2, (an estimated % of their original extent) contributing to approximately 25% of the world’s forest cover today. Temperate forests contain an estimated Pg of carbon, which is about 11% of the global carbon stock. Overall the extent of temperate forests is stable, with countries in Europe and temperate forests in China gaining cover.
