In mixed forests, broadleaved and coniferous breeds of trees grow. In this natural zone, the warm summer, and the winter is soft. There is a lot of precipitation in a year up to 800 mm. In such conditions, a rich plant and animal world has formed.
The problem of deforestation
Most environmental problems of mixed forests depend on human activities. You can distinguish a number of ecoprolays for each particular forest, but there are common problems that are characteristic of all mixed forests:
The impact of humans on the ecology of mixed forests
Many people envisage the nature of mixed forests for economic use. So in the forest zone there is fertile soil, so very often people cut down trees in order to create agricultural fields in their place and grow different crops. All this leads to the following consequences:
As a result, people not only use mixed forests, but also threaten the safety of plants and animals. Not all species can adapt to life in new conditions.
Speaking about the impact of people on the forest ecosystem, it, of course, has a negative meaning. Since the laws of nature are violated, the timber may not recover. The reduction in the number of trees on the planet leads to the fact that there are not enough plants to produce enough oxygen, which in turn significantly worsens the state of the atmosphere. Some species of rare plants grow in mixed forests, rare species of animals live, and valuable species of fish live in reservoirs.
In addition to the fact that people destroy forests, those that remain, they pollute them. And this is not only the garbage left by tourists, but also the pollution of forest rivers and lakes, the release of exhaust gases and harmful compounds into the atmosphere. As a result, acid rain can fall in forest areas. As a result of anthropogenic activity, the soil may be polluted, which will contribute to the entry of harmful substances into the body of plants. Careless and careless behavior of people in the forest can lead to fires. In this case, nature is exterminated rapidly, and vast territories suffer. It is worth mentioning the poaching activities of people, which is of negative importance to the life of a forest ecosystem.
