a study published in the science journal Conservation Biology, Dr.
David Edwards of the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom compared
three areas of rainforest in northeast Borneo island, one being
untouched original growth, the next, deforested regions that were
actively replanted, and finally, deforested regions that were left
He found that the actively rehabilitated forests
recovered from logging and returned to untouched forest levels of
biodiversity within 15 years. Dr. Edwards concluded that this study
could provide good motivation to protect and restore previously logged
forests, especially those that might be under additional threat of
for oil palm and other such crops.
Edwards and University of Leeds associates, we laud your findings that
show how we can best assist our damaged rainforests as well as the
ecosphere. May we all work together to help bring back the vitality and
pristine beauty of our magnificent Earth. Referencehttp://news.mongabay.com/2009/1021-hance_forestbio.html http://www.leeds.ac.uk/contact http://www.newkerala.com/nkfullnews-1-135372.html
