...Deforestation Recent years, deforestation becomes one of the most serious problems affected all countries. Sustainable forestry and woodland management allow the promotion of small-scale social forestry programs, where local communities are involved in the establishment of tree nurseries. Environmentalists and ecologists pay a special attention to Brazilian Amazon and deforestation which has a great impact on global ecology and air quality. Deforestation, largely for logging and wood-fuel purposes, is common in South America. The main causes of deforestation in this region are agricultural development, expansion of mining and logging (for instance, gold and diamond mines in Venezuela... 05 May 2006...
