Are rubber tree populations dwindling?



  1. 0 Votes

    Rubber tree populations are doing very well, in fact too well. They have long been cultivated for the high value industrial nations place in their product. Now, the large numbers of mono-culture (containing only one species) farms in Asia have created a risk of environmental damage. Erosion of soil cover, too much stream sedimentation, depletion of streams and lakes, and decreased water quality have all been linked to this practice.
