Definitions for "Deforestation"
Removal of certain canopy or understory species or specimens (selective extraction or logging), as well as extensive conversion of large tracts of tropical forest for agricultural, sivlicultrual or urban-industrial uses.
Those practices or processes that result in the change of forested lands to non-forest uses. This is often cited as one of the major causes of the enhanced greenhouse effect for two reasons:1) the burning or decomposition of the wood releases carbon dioxide; and 2) trees that once removed carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in the process of photosynthesis are no longer present and contributing to carbon storage.
