Due to the low buffering capacity of Swedish forest soils, a high level of air pollution-mainly originating abroad-has resulted in widespread soil acidification. This keeps the animals out of danger zones and allows them to live and reproduce naturally in its own environment. In this region sunlight strikes Earth at roughly a 90-degree angle resulting in intense solar energy, as the latitude increases the intensity decreases.

The previous extensive contractions of the rainforests in the Ice Age and the drier periods of the Holocene indicate that extensive climate-driven rainforest loss is clearly quite possible. In 1988, The International Tropical Timber Organization, established to regulate international trade of tropical timber, found that on a world scale, sustainable logging is negligible ( RIC, 2000B ). The vast majority of rain forest plants rely on animals to disperse their seeds, wind being of little use in the stillness of the forest.

The rat ceremony is said to only work when the community is of “one mind and one heart.” Community solidarity, instead of pest control, becomes the focus of the climate change adaptation.

It was also shown that litter decomposition and nutrient release differed between different Populus genotypes, indicating that selection of tree genotypes may have profound and long lasting effects on ecosystem functioning of restored forests [ 99, 100 ]. Because of these threats, tigers are an endangered animal. The relatively high water use by forests compared with non-forest lands transfers more water to the atmosphere, with potential effects on local and regional climate if forest areas are very extensive.
