Wipe out of Australia's forests contributes to emergency

Just 10 percent of Australia's vegetation is left since Europeans arrived in 1788. And according to a University of Queensland study, the loss of vegetation has increased annual droughts by one-to-tow weeks, the number of days without rain by 10 and the number of days with temperatures above 95 degrees from six to 18. (New Scientist)

May not seem like much. A day here, a few degrees there. But every bit counts in Australia where there in the grip of an 11-year drought.

So what? Natural vegetation, forests in particular, around the world
are under siege. Some losses we can more easily stop than others. Either way, we need to be aware of how wide-ranging the loss of natural habitat can be so we know how hard to fight to preserve them.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
