But this makes it all the more important that the biodiversity that is present in arid environments be given even higher priority; for each species lost from an arid region, the percentage of loss for the region's biodiversity is much higher than in more species-rich by: Brazil holds a substantial part of the world's biodiversity and of tropical forests that play a significant role for regional and global climate stability.

Abstract: Plant biodiversity which is a base for supporting ecosystems brings not only contribution to our life as resource materials, but also various ecosystem services such as environmental adjustment functions.

The present study documents dynamics and patterns of knowledge about the use of native plants in a rural community, according to the age and gender of its members, in a semi-arid region of Paraíba State, northeastern Brazil. Socioeconomic factors and ethnobotanical data were registered from household heads through semi-structured interviews.

Promoting Best Practices for Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity of Global Significance in Arid and Semi-arid Zones Project Summary The project will identify and diseminate best practices for conserving and sustainably using biodiversity of global significance in the arid & semi-arid ecosystems of 15 countries worldwide.

Hunting for wild animals is stimulated by the many different human uses of faunal resources, and these animals constitute important subsistence items in local communities in the Caatinga region.

The principal hunting techniques encountered were Cited by:   Humans in various cultures have feared snakes, provoking an aversion and persecution that hinders conservation efforts for these reptiles.

Roads now penetrate even the most remote parts of much of the world, but the majority of research on the effects of roads on biota has been in less remote temperate environments. The impacts of roads in semi-arid and arid areas may differ from these results in a number of ways.

The Amazon rainforest, alternatively, the Amazon Jungle, also known in English as Amazonia, is a moist broadleaf tropical rainforest in the Amazon biome that covers most of the Amazon basin of South America. This basin encompasses 7, km 2 (2, sq mi), of which 5, km 2 (2, sq mi) are covered by the rainforest.

This region includes territory belonging to nine nations. Methane from ruminant and rice e is a principal GHG driving climate change. Its warming potential is about 20 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. 1 Global methane emissions amount at present to about million tonnes p.a., increasing at an annual rate of million tonnes.

Rice production currently contributes about 11 percent of global methane emissions.
