Answer ALL the questions that follow. Since ancient times, forests have played an important part in people’s lives. They provide materials for building houses and boats and even fuel for cooking. They are an important source of food and traditional medicine. They also form the catchment areas where our source of drinking water lies. More importantly, the forests provide the oxygen that we need. They are the habitat of most of the wild 5 life on earth. It is no exaggeration to claim that forests are essential for our survival. Have we ever wondered what would happen if the world’s forests were completely depleted? ' Although forests are a renewable resource, large scale indiscriminate felling has brought about problems which if not checked, will threaten our very existence. 10 About a century ago, when the world’s population was small, it was thought that the forests would be adequate to supply everyone’s needs. Today, with a ' population of approximately six billion, the forests have been heavily exploited. So much forest land has been cleared for industries and other needs that only about twenty per cent of the world’s land is now covered with forests. In most of the 15 industrialized countries, there are not enough forests to provide for their needs. In many developing countries, unscrupulous exploitation of forests and lack of replanting programmes are accelerating their depletion. Unless drastic measures are taken, this important resource may not be able to regenerate quickly enough to prevent further losses. 20 One problem related to widespread deforestation is soil erosion. Without vegetation, the land is exposed to strong sunlight and heavy rainfall. Surface runoff is drastically increased. It carries with it fertile topsoil. Eventually the Streams and rivers in the forests will be deposited with the extra load of silt and become shallow, thus increasing the incidence of floods. Landslides often occur 25 on hill slopes cleared of vegetation. The removal of forests also means the disappearance of the habitats of many species of flora and fauna and the destruction of catchment areas. Many of the species of animals affected are not able to adapt to a different environment and will consequently become extinct. Excessive deforestation by man has not only affected the environment but 30 also changed the nature of the original forest. Forest destruction has led to a reduction in transpiration. This leads to a change in the rainfall pattern which becomes more unstable. In many of the areas cleared of vegetation by shifting cultivators or timber companies, secondary forests develop after a period of time. These secondary forests which consist of trees of shorter variety and savannah 35 type of vegetation, are less useful to us. It is imperative that stringent measures be taken to conserve and protect the forests to ensure a continuous supply in future. Since this resource is renewable, an afforestation programme is probably one of the most effective measures. It can be carried out by the owners of private forests or by the government. In this way, 40 what is felled is being replaced. In some countries, new species are planted to I Continued. . . ZUCGr/rNc': 6/10 LEI 0032 / PIE 0035 FINAL ADVANCED LEVEL 3 JAN. 2007 replace the original species that have been felled. For example, in Sabah, Malaysia, some areas which have been cleared of their original hardwood species are being replaced with softwood trees. Extracted from Advantage English, Lim J.C & Cheah S.E.
