Amazon Rainforests Now at Critical Situation Shocking results from a Recent Research

Amazon rainforests Shocking results from a study of the risk of extinction of entire trees. Researchers say the Amazon rainforest is on the verge of extinction. One study says that if this happens, the entire tree will be destroyed.

The study reveals that the Amazon rainforest, the world’s largest rainforest, is currently losing the ability to recover from the damage caused by drought, wildfires and deforestation.

Much of the Amazon land is likely to change, as is the Savanna, which is rarely forested. Savanna forests are less capable of absorbing carbon dioxide than tropical forests.

According to satellite data taken over the past 3 decades, at present, the health of the Amazon rainforest is at risk.

That is, more than 75% of the wild area also has signs of losing its resilience. As a result, it takes time for trees to recover from damage caused by climate change, deforestation, wildfires, and drought.

“If this cycle continues, it could trigger the beginning of a ‘state of extinction’ for trees, scientists say.

Once this process (destruction) begins, analysts can predict that it will take decades for a significant portion of the Amazon to become savannah. Savannah is the name of a natural system that is a mixture of grass and trees.

In addition, “about one-fifth of the rainforest has already been lost, compared to the pre-Industrial Revolution period.”

The research was carried out by the University of Exeter, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the University of Munich University of Technology.

Deforestation and climate change are the main contributors to the decline, says Nicklaus Porce, a professor at Potsdam.

In this line, “All of these results are consistent with evidence that both the pressures of climate change and human exploitation in tropical forests pose a threat to the world’s largest rainforest,” said Professor Bonnie Waring of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and Environment at Imperial College London.

The results of the study, which was based on satellite data from 1991 to 2016, were published in the journal Nature Ecology.
