Destruction of tropical rain forests is a major threat to humanity

According to a report recently published in the science journal “Nature” In the northern part of Australia, the rate of tropical rain forest loss has doubled in the last 35 years, and climate change and rising temperatures are being cited as the main reasons behind this.

New research has also expressed concern that in the future, tropical forests may release more carbon dioxide than they can absorb.

In this research, Oxford University, James Cook University of Australia and institutions from UK, France, USA, Peru have worked together.

Tropical forest ecologist David Baumann at Oxford University, who is also the lead author of this research, said such an increase in tree mortality is very worrying. They are also sensitive.

The report’s co-author and Oxford University professor Yadvinder Malhi compared changes in Australia’s rainforests to those of the Great Barrier Reef’s corals, which have experienced bleaching events over the past seven years.

He cited global warming as the main reason and said that the same speed can be seen in the death rate of trees in tropical forests around the world.

About tropical rain forests…

  • -Tropical rainforests are found within 28 degrees north or south of the closed equator.
  • -Here 200 cm per annum either seasonally or throughout the year. It rains more.
  • -Here the temperature is uniformly high which is between 20 ยฐC and 35 ยฐC.
  • These types of forests are mainly found in Asia, Australia, Africa, South America, Central America, Mexico and many Pacific islands.

Tropical rainforests play an important role in maintaining the Earth’s climate balance, as well as being the most biodiverse forests, due to climate change and increasing industrialization, these forests are being rapidly destroyed. It has become a big problem today.

Protection measures…

To stop this problem, more and more afforestation will have to be done while slowing down the deforestation.

Apart from this, voluntary organizations should contribute for forest conservation so that maximum awareness can be spread in this subject.

Van Mahotsav should be organized every year for forest conservation.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) should focus on better forest management to reduce and reduce deforestation.

Tropical rainforests are also called the lungs of the earth because these forests play an important role in keeping the environment balanced, so there is a special need for their protection.
