Tropical Rainforests: Threats and Challenges

Synopsis
Introduced by an indigenous environmental campaigner who outlines the threats facing the rainforest, this title considers the value of rainforests, both locally and globally in terms of their goods and services. It then explores the impacts of deforestation and the threats from logging, cattle ranching, commercial palm oil production and oil and mineral extraction. Climate change, soil erosion, water pollution, loss of biodiversity, and the impacts on indigenous communities are all considered.
