Resource summary

  1. A forest is a highly complex, constantly changing environment made up of a variety of living things (wildlife, trees, shrubs, wildflowers, ferns, mosses, lichens, fungi and microscopic soil organisms) and non-living things (water, nutrients, rocks, sunlight and air). Trees are the biggest part of this complex community.
    1. Types of forests
      1. There are many different kinds of forests around the world—tropical rain forests, temperate rain forests, boreal forests, mangrove forests, Carolinian forests... to name but a few. In Canada, we have eight different forest regions; the Boreal, Subalpine, Montane, Coast, Columbia, Deciduous (Carolinian), Great Lakes/St. Lawrence and Acadian forest regions.
        1. Boreal Forest
          1. Coast Forest
            1. The Coast region runs along the Pacific coast of British Columbia. The trees are almost all coniferous and many species are used for timber.
            2. The Boreal forest region covers about 80% of Canada’s forested land. It runs east from the Rocky Mountains and the Alaskan border across the country to northern Newfoundland
          2. Forests problem
            1. Loss of forests
              1. Deforestation
                1. stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use.[1] Examples of deforestation include conversion of forestland to farms, ranches, or uDeforestation, clearance or clearing is the removal of a forest orrban use.
                  1. Effects
                    1. Soil Erosion:
                      1. Also due to the shade of trees the soil remains moist. With the clearance of tree cover, the soil is directly exposed to the sun, making it dry.
                      2. Wildlife Extinction
                        1. Due to massive felling down of trees, various species of animals are lost. They lose their habitat and forced to move to new location. Some of them are even pushed to extinction. Our world has lost so many species of plants and animals in last couple of decades.
