Pathways and consequences of human-chimpanzee interaction around Nyungwe National Park, Rwanda Stepping off the plane after landing in Kigali, Rwanda, the air was smoky from households burning firewood to cook food. It is evident that the shifted cultivators "have become the agents for destruction but not the cause" (Westoby 1987: Colchester).

My markets for stock photography are mostly education (online and textbooks) and travel publications; I am careful to correctly identify photographs with scientific name whenever relevant and possible, consulting specialists. The result is a reduction in the total area where new oak and maple trees can expand. From the mist-shrouded forests of the Border Ranges to the deciduous thickets of Cape York Peninsula, Queensland has significant rainforest diversity. Thus, it is not surprising graphic rates (Condit et al. 1993, 1995).

The Indian and Sri Lankan rainforests have suffered badly as a result of increasing human populations and poorly controlled logging during the past few decades. Rainforest is home to more than half the world's plant and animal species and is a valuable resource for cultivated plants, drugs and medicines. It has a notorious history of being the center for all kinds of illicit trade: forced indigenous laborers for the rubber boom in the early 20th century, illegal timber thereafter, and most recently, cocaine.

If you think that’s dangerous, you need to get the hell out of the city because you’re surrounded by radio waves. However, there appears to be a fairly tight relationship between soil nutrient availability, plant chemistry and digestibility, and the abundance of mammalian herbivores in undisturbed tropical forests (McKey et al. 1978, Waterman and McKey 1988, Waterman et al. 1988, Chapman and Chapman 1999, Chapman et al. 2002, but see Oates et al. 1990) and tropical savannas (Bell 1982).
