When New Zealand separated from Gondwana, it took some of the flora, fauna and fungi of the supercontinent with it. Some of the most important trees in the world live in rainforests.

In fact, in the late nineteenth century, when syndicalism emerged as an issue among anarchists, it was furiously debated.

I just hope that Guyana's indigenous (Amerindian) people do not get forgotten in the whole affair. Approximately 60 million people, mainly members of indigenous and local communities, reside in forests.

The higher the mountain, the colder and windier the environment. They serve as home to many of the unknown species of mammals, reptiles, wildlife, insects, birds and so many others, which are yet to be named by scientists. Scientists believe that less than half of 1% of flowering plant species have been studied in detail for their medicinal potential. 5 As the Amazon rainforest biome slowly shrinks in size, so does the richness of wildlife found in its forests, along with the potential use of plants and animals that remain undiscovered. 1 Laurance, W.

Other Crown land - Crown land held for a variety of purposes. Although many tropical rain forest habitats are adapted to seasonal flooding (see pages 16-19), the creation of a reservoir is usually a large-scale, extreme and permanent change. These include nutrient-rich alluvial soils in várzea forests (seasonally inundated by white-water rivers of Andean origin), terra roxa soils (nutrient-rich, well-structured upland soils formed on base-rich rock), eutrophic Cambisols (young, relatively unweathered soils with high activity clay and high nutrient status), and Vertisols (clay soils with high activity clay minerals and high nutrient content).

The rain forest, where disturbed, developed charac- teristics of the monsoon forest, whereas the monsoon forest degraded into bamboo forest, or open woodland with grasses on the ground, particularly when subjected to regular burning. Dry rainforest remnants are scattered across northern Australia and throughout eastern Queensland. Today's forest legislation contains provisions aimed at protecting key woodland habitats for flora and fauna, selected valuable broad-leaved deciduous trees (mainly oak and beech), forests located near high mountains and wetland forests.
