Caption: Deforestation. View of deforested land in the Ecuadorian rainforest. The Ecuadorian Amazon River can be seen across the centre. The systematic clearing of trees and vegetation from the rainforests has raised concern that countless plant and animal species could be made extinct. There are also worries that the lack of oxygen- producing vegetation in this area could contribute to global warming, due to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The development of urban and agricultural land by colonists, as here, has caused large-scale destruction of vegetation.
