Mangrove Ecosystem

The growth and development of a forest known as forest succession (forest succession or SERE). Mangrove forest is an example of forest succession in wetlands (called hydrosere). Given this succession process, please note that the zoning of mangrove forests in the above description is not eternal, but gradually shifted.

Mangrove Ecosystem

Succession begins with the formation of an exposure to mud (mudflat) that can serve as a substrate of mangrove forests. Until the point of this new substrate invaded by propagules, propagules of mangrove vegetation, and begin to form pioneer vegetation of mangrove forests.

Function Tropical Rainforest Soil

Leaves in the canopy makes the base layer of the tropical rainforest are generally dark and damp. However, despite its constant shade, the soil surface from rain forest is an important part of forest ecosystems.

Important Result Forest Fire

Forest fires in recent years become an international concern as an environmental issue that resulted in forest degradation and deforestation, pollution haze and carbon emissions. The negative impact of up to become a global issue is the smoke from the burning that have crossed state borders. Combustion other than causing fog also pollute the air and increases greenhouse gases.

Important Result Forest Fire

Thick smoke from forest fires because it can interfere negatively impact public health, especially respiratory tract disorders. Besides thick smoke also disrupt transportation, especially air transport in addition to land, rivers, lakes, and seas. At sufficiently large forest fires that many cases had to be delayed or canceled flight. While on land, river, lake and ocean occurred several cases of collision or accident causing loss of lives and property.

Important Result Forest Fire

Another effect is the destruction forest after a fire and loss of wildlife. Heavy forest burning will be difficult to be restored, because the soil structure is damaged. Loss of vegetation led to open land, so easily eroded, and can no longer withstand flooding. So after forest burning, frequent floods in the rainy season in many areas of forest burned. Losses due to flooding is also difficult to calculate.

Case Studies Forest Fires in Indonesia

As a result of forest fires not only result in economic losses and damage to ecosystems. We also branded as a nation and society can not and do not want to preserve the natural wealth. Though the extent of forest area in Indonesia reaches 10 percent of tropical forest in the world or the third largest after Brazil and Zaire.

Not only that. Thick smoke that interferes with neighboring air space makes a number of countries to label us as not a good neighbor. Not only health factors and community activities are disrupted, but more related to the disruption of flight navigation and shipping.

Forest Fires Impact On Ecological and Environmental Degradation

Destruction of the rainforest caused by forest fires is loss of some species, fires not only burn the tree manifold but also destroys the variety of other wildlife habitat. Generally these animals perished due to join trapped by smoke and the difficulty of the way out because the fire has been surrounded from all directions, this can result in damage to wildlife in the rainforest. There has been no in-depth study of how many species are involved burn in forest fires in Indonesia (rainforest animals and facts effect of forest fire).

Forest Fires Impact On Ecological and Environmental Degradation

The threat of erosion, fires that occur on the slopes of the mountains or on the plateau will destroy a number of plants that also serves to put a halt on the top layer of soil to erosion does not occur. At the time it rains and when the run-off occurs, the absence of ground roots - due to burn - as a binder, causing soil carried by rain down the once potential eventually lead not only erosion but also landslides.

Forest Fires Impact on Social, Cultural and Economic

Forest Fires Impact on Social, Cultural and Economic

The loss of community livelihoods in and around the forest. A number of people who had been their living from forest products are not capable of performing his activities. Smoke generated from fires are somewhat disturbing activities that automatically also affects income. After the fire ended ensure that the community lost a number of areas where he used to take forest produce such as rattan, rubber and so on.

Formation Forests Ecosystems

Formation of forest ecosystems caused by the dominant influence of environmental factors on the formation and development of communities in forest ecosystems. The grouping is based on understanding the formation of a climax forest, the community of which occur during late succession. Understanding relating to the adaptation climax vegetation cover in terms of overall physiological, morphological, terms of growth, and growth form, so that extreme conditions of climate and soil will lead to adaptation effects trees and other vegetation to be real.
