Definition for Deforestation: It is the the removal of a forest or stand of trees from land which is then converted to a non-forest use.
All of us have studied deforestation in school and now we are facing it's oppressive effects more than ever. .
Due to deforestation, animals will lose their natural habitat forcing them to crowd together in smaller pieces of land. This leads to overcrowding. .
Carrying capacity is the maximum population size of the species that the environment can sustain (in a healthy manner) given the food, habitat, water, and other necessities.
With overcrowding, the density of the population increases, which greatly affects their standard of living. .
When species exceed carrying capacity, the resources in the land are consumed quicker than it would have with an ideal population.
The quality of good food and water sources drop.
Especially, for deer, this has greatly affected their tendencies to move away from their natural habitat and towards human population. This also increases the risks and incidents of accidents, poor-quality food consumption. .
Overcrowding also leads to risks of developing a range of diseases amongst animals.
When there is overcrowding, it prevents predators from feeding on their prey. This leads to population going out of check, further inducing poor quality of life.
The cycle becomes vicious.
The Earth is the most beautiful planet there is, and it is OUR only home. Happy is he, who is happy at home. If the Earth should be a happier place for all animals and plants, we must start treating her with the respect she deserves. .
