Threats to the rainforest
A Coggle Diagram about climate (The destruction of the rainforest could affect the world's climate. Rainforests also help to transport huge volumes of water vapour through the atmosphere in 'flying rivers'. Water falls on the rainforests, is absorbed by the trees and then evaporated from their leaves in a process called transpiration. When the trees are removed, the flying rivers stop flowing.), Ranching & Agriculture, Logging (Logging interests cut down rain forest trees for timber used in flooring, furniture, and other items.), Mining (Beneath rainforests there often lies a wealth of natural resources in the form of mineral and gold deposits. ), tourism (When people go into rainforests they disturb the habitat of plants and animals. Building tourism sites takes away the space animals and plants need for shelter or food.), fuel wood ( Wood is relied on all over the world for the purpose of fuel.), fires ( Fires in the rainforest are caused by weather and humans. ), Oil developement (Valuable trees are harvested and the rest are burnt to clear the land for the farming of palm oil. ), Infrastructure (people cut down trees to build houses/ factories etc), deforestation, Damming and Power plants and other industries cut and burn trees to generate electricity.
