WOOD AND OTHER PRODUCTS

Tropical rainforests also provide many valuable products including timber, industrial raw materials, fruits, nuts, oil, and medicinal plants. It also provides income and jobs for millions of people neighboring the forests..

SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACT OF TROPICAL DEFORESTATION

More than half of the world’s species of living plants, animals, and insects are found in the tropical forest, from Monkey to Tiger and to Elephants, to uncommon plants and trees, from frogs, snakes to rare butterflies and parrots. Many of the world’s animal species are found in the rainforest together with immerse variety plants and insects. Meanwhile, there are various forms of tropical rainforests, they are; slow growing mountain forest, dark jungle rainforest with dense canopies, mangrove or swamp rainforests, and tropical dry rainforests (savannah) and is also called open woodlands. All forests have both economic and ecological value, but tropical forests are especially important in the global economy. These forests cover less than 6% of the earth’s land area, but they contain the vast majority of the world’s plant and animal genetic resources. So many of the commercial and the domestic plants and animals that we rely on today still have wild ancestors that are still thriving in the forests and these wild strains can be used to breed new strains that are resistant to pests and diseases and give high yield

ENDANGERED WILDLIFE

Forests are biological communities and complex association of trees with other plants and animals as well as insects that have evolved together over millions of years. Because of loss of rainforests’ thousands of species of birds and animals are threatened with extinctions. The list is endless.

SUSTANAIBLE FORESTRY

Gilford Pinchot, the first American professional forester, advocated the use of forest resources not just for timbers but human benefits. He was a strong and charismatic leader, his ideas helped to shape the course of forestry in the United States. Later Pinchot had a vocal opponent, John Muir a young naturalist from California, who believes that public lands should be preserved rather than used. Eventually Muir and Pinchot became rivals for public approval, but oddly enough, there was no loser in this early conservation battle. Muir’s conservation ethic becomes embodied in the philosophy of the national parks and Pinchot’s concept of wise use became the guiding principle of the United States forests. Some tropical rainforest reserves can be educated for extractive purposes, to the production of useful products such as fruits and nuts gathering, as well as other renewable resources on the sustainable basis; such reserve have been established in Brazil and is adding value to the lively hood of the local communities while still maintaining the ecological integrity of the forests. In recent years, increased emphasis has been put on what some are calling ‘’ecosystems managements’’. In this model the long-term health and stability of the forests, especially the tropical rainforests, are paramount thus, timber production is considered to be a bye product of good forest management rather than the principle product.
