Caption: Deforestation. View of a pile of cut tree trunks in a deforested tropical rainforest. 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. Forests are cut down not just for timber, but also to clear land for crops, grazing farm animals (as here) and, in some areas, oil drilling. Photographed in Puntarenas province, Costa Rica.
