some ways vegetation and forests in the pacific have been degraded



  1. 0 Votes

    Deforestation in the Pacific Islands is due to logging, agricultural purposes, and fires. With the increase in population and the creation of more efficient tools, logging has taken out a large chunk of forests. Agriculture has taken out many forests as well, using the land for coconut, cocoa, and banana plantations. People have also burned land for agricultural purposes, which brings us to the third point: fires. Whether by natural causes or man-made, fires have contributed to deforestation in the Pacific Islands. The harm of these three issues has been augmented due to the increase in population. More people mean more exploitation of resources.
