    for ‘reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation’ (REDD). This is a new and complex type of forest project, that aims to stop the clearing and damage to fo rests that occurs as a result of logging, agriculture, plantations or other land-use changes such as mining. The main aim of REDD is to help fi ght global climate change.   Amazon showing signs of degradation due to climate change, Nasa warns Rainforest area twice the size of California experiencing drought rate that is unprecedented in a century, study shows.

    Land degradation is a process in which the value of the biophysical environment is affected by a combination of human-induced processes acting upon the land. It is viewed as any change or disturbance to the land perceived to be deleterious or undesirable. Natural hazards are excluded as a cause; however human activities can indirectly affect phenomena such as floods and . The word forest derives from the Old French forest (also forès), denoting "forest, vast expanse covered by trees"; forest was first introduced into English as the word denoting wild land set aside for hunting without the necessity in definition of having trees on the land. Possibly a borrowing, probably via Frankish or Old High German, of the Medieval Latin foresta, denoting .

      Forestry is a fascinating topic of study, particularly for readers interested in biology, ecology, conservationism or environmentalism. With so many forestry books on the market, the amount of subject matter is overwhelming. Students are best served by delving into a different types of books, such as those dealing with understanding the forested environment . Slash-and-burn agriculture is responsible for the loss of around 50 acres of land every hour worldwide.4 One of the issues with slash and burn is that fires intentionally set can unintentionally spread throughout the forest When fire spreads to unintended areas, the protective forest canopy is destroyed.

Faruque Hossain, in Sustainable Design and Build, CO 2 Emissions From the Land-Use Change (E LUC). The emissions reported here (E LUC) include CO 2 fluxes from deforestation, forest degradation, and the abandonment of agricultural land associated with modern civilization and were calculated by implementing dynamic global vegetation modeling.

The scope of the study therefore is restricted to the. Intact Forest Landscapes Although all IFL are within the forest zone, some may contain extensive naturally tree-less areas, including grasslands, wetlands, lakes, alpine areas, and ice.” This definition which the IFL maps is based on builds on the definition of Frontier Forest that was developed by WRI (Bryant et al., ).

Deforestation and forest degradation has been observed to be rampant in Masito-Ugalla ecosystem, Kigoma Region, western part of Tanzania. This paper therefore, intended to assess the extent of deforestation and forest degradation in the area, and to determine their causes.

Lesotho, like many other countries in Africa has suffered severe land degradation in both cultivated and range land. Degradation (12, ha y −1) exceeded deforestation ( ha y −1) and was worse in BRH. In BRH there was a net forest loss (−% y −1) associated with pastureland and commercial agriculture.

In ZM, mature forest recovery (% y −1) and dynamic forest cover (continuous loss and gain) were associated with shifting cultivation. 1. Introduction. While there is no internationally accepted definition of forest degradation, it can generally be defined as a disturbance caused by human intervention in a forested landscape that results in carbon emissions but not a change in land cover (GFOI,p.

19).Compared to intact forests, degraded forests are often lower in biomass, less. of only 10% forest cover for land to be clas-sifiedasforest(4),acriterionthatwouldsatisfy few forest-dwelling species. Moreover, forest assessment data provide no insights into the recovery of forest biodiversity or ecosystem services lost because of forest conversion or degradation.

It is perhaps, best pitched at late-in-the course undergraduate, or graduate environmental scientists wishing to begin exploring urban land problems." (, Land Degradation and Rehabilitation, Vol.

15 (6), ). This approach acknowledges that the reason why land management can fail are extremely varied, and must include a thorough understanding of the changing natural resource base itself, the human response to this, and broader changes in society, of which land managers are a part.

Deforestation can involve conversion of forest land to farms, ranches, or urban use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests. About 31% of Earth's land surface is covered by forests.

In this unique situation, environmental degradation is a specific instance of utilization or generation externalities reflected by uniqueness amongst private and social.

Forest degradation, in terms of land mass, is an even bigger problem than deforestation: about million square miles of forest are at high risk of degradation in the next 10 years.

There are a few main drivers of forest degradation. One is climate change: higher temperatures and unpredictable weather patterns increase the risk and severity. Forest degradation is widespread in India with severe consequences for millions of forest-dependent communities.
