The result was the Tropical Forestry Action Plan (tfap). The trainings will happen during the fall and spring of each year and participants will then collect data throughout the year. Improving the protected areas systems in tropical forests in the interest of maintaining biodiversity, stabilizing local climate and hydro- logy, and providing the goods and services that human inhabi- tants of the forest need. It is lived in and off of by humans, but it is not created or controlled by them.

Traditionally, countries of the global south have lived harmoniously with their environment, exploiting their resources, specifically their forests, only on a small sustainable scale. How citizen science can help monitor data cold spots – Citizen science, increasingly used to monitor species and ecosystems, is among the many issues to be highlighted at IUCN World Conservation Congress, starting next week. 22 August Indigenous peoples and local communities key in combatting illegal wildlife trade Involving and supporting Indigenous peoples and local communities in the fight against wildlife trafficking is essential, yet often overlooked, writes Rosie Cooney, Chair of IUCN’s Sustainable Use and Livelihoods Specialist Group. 3 August Saving Batagur turtles across Asia – Following ongoing success with captive breeding programmes for river terrapins in the Batagur genus, Rick Hudson of SOS grantee Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA) reflects on the challenges of pulling a turtle back from the brink of extinction. 8 July

Forests further from the equator, like those of India, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Central America, where rainy seasons are more pronounced, can only be considered "semi-evergreen" since some species of trees may shed all of their leaves at the beginning of the dry season. They also make up 28% of the world’s oxygen. Valuing soil and water conservation effects of exclosures: a case study in Douga-tembein district of Tigray, Ethiopia.

Mid-way up you can find alder and cottonwood species breaking the monotony of the pine forests, with their broadleaf canopies providing even more color to an already vibrant world when their leaves lose chlorophyll. Stand-level assessments are required for local understanding, but the indicators must also be applicable for forest management units and at sub-national and national levels for international reporting purposes (e.g., to CBD; e.g., Sasaki and Putz 2009).

The lip of the flower mimics the underside of a fungus and attracts fungus gnats which, in the process of laying eggs among the fake gills, carry out pollination. The world contains many other biomes: grasslands, deserts, and mountains, to name a few. High atmospheric humidity, more than high annual rainfall, is essential to prevent drying out. The most extraordinary of these specific relationships involves figs and fig wasps, where the tiny wasps act out their entire life cycle within the developing fig, the newly hatched young leaving to fly directly to a new flg, and thus transferring the pollen.
