On this page you will find a list of links to organisations that allow conservationists to buy a small piece of rainforest to protect it. In the near future, companies will be able to support rainforest conservation and "offset" emissions by sponsoring forest protection in tropical countries. Visitor’s center is $3 per person, children 12 and under and seniors is $1.50. Precipitation: This is water that falls from the sky.

He found that if average temperatures rise by more than 2ºC (3.6ºF)—a very plausible amount of warming—extinction rates could spike. And what are people doing to stop that destruction? Biodiversity is the name for all living things�like plants, animals, and fungi�found in an ecosystem. By counting butterflies, we can survey their numbers in the United States and Canada, while having fun outside and learning more about butterflies and other wildlife. Polar bears rely heavily on Arctic sea ice, which is rapidly disappearing due to global warming.

Dipterocarps are principally pollinated by small insects called thirps, which have adapted short lifestyles to coincide with the irregular masting periods, and studies have shown thorp populations increase exponentially at times of high fruit abundance (Mongabay, 2005).

This effective methodology has produced important insights into almost all aspects of butterfly ecology. Tropical waters, whether they be giant rivers, streams, or oxbow lakes, are almost as rich in animal species as the rainforests that surround them. In the inland dry rainforest patches of north Queensland (between 17° and 23.4°S latitude), ∼28% has been cleared, with the remainder confined largely to small, isolated fragments ( Fensham 1996 ).

All 30 of its primate species are lemurs, and none is found anywhere outside Madagascar and the adjacent Comoro Islands. Occasionally, when a canopy tree falls, a temporary "light gap" is opened in the canopy, allowing growth of floor and understory species. The impact on migrating river species such as the pink river dolphin {Inia geoffrensis) can only be guessed at. These three factors allow for year-round growth and reproduction in the lowland forest, making the richness of species in these areas possible.

Apart from tigers, several other animals are also found in these mangrove forests and the animals include spotted deer, pigs, rhesus, monkey, lizard, water monitor, crocodile, crabs and fish. It is the destruction of beauty, the obliteration of truth, the removal of uniqueness, the scarring of the sacred web of life To be responsible for an extinction is to commit blasphemy against the divine. Their efforts were rewarded by the recent announce- ment of a new national park there (see page 137). *The World Wide Fund for Nature (wwf) is undoubtedly the best-known international conservation ngo.

The plight of the colonists attracts some sympathy - their lot can be improved only through changes in government policy and land-tenure laws - but careless commercial logging is inexcusable, given the profits that timber companies make. A high value of D suggests a stable and ancient ecosystem and a low D value could suggest pollution, recent succession or agricultural management. Mayaux et al. [ 2 ] present a new analysis of deforestation across the African rainforest zone over two 10-year intervals 1990–2000 and 2000–2010, taking advantage of the recent free availability of the Landsat archive to conduct high-resolution time-series analyses of 10 × 10 km areas distributed on a regular grid at each integer latitude and longitude intersect.

Wilson developed the foundations for understanding the biological basis for social behavior in insects. The map will be a crucial point of reference that can be shared and used to monitor, manage and ultimately protect WA's precious environment. A large portion of the rainfall in the Yucatán seeps into its aquifers; there are virtually no rivers to carry rainwater to the ocean. Researchers have estimated that there are between 3 - 30 million species on Earth, with a few studies predicting that there may be over 100 million species on Earth!
