I get some benifit by this topic. You can’t go anywhere without some type of stimulus coming at you but it’s effective. To requried atopics, It is also so much important for us.

Thanks for your reply. I agree that green house gases, slash and burn agriculture, and many other local and not-so-local human activities are affecting the world’s rain forests. The fun (and challenging) part about ecology is figuring out the relationships among all the “players”. As you stated, the work is incredibly important and necessary if we are going to protect both the environment and humans.

The rain forest is a fragile organism and human interferance can cause serious damage including the proliferation of insect vectors that can spread contagian from animals to people. What we are doing in North America with greenhouse gas production is having a negative impact on the south and central American rain forests like the Amazon at the very time the forests are needed most to provide natural carbon sequestration. The GHG problem is probably as important as the slash and burn agriculture and the illegal logging, and narcotics manufacturing being done by local populations. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
