In Guyana, we are ready to play our part, and to provide a model for other rainforest countries to share. First proposed by Lokta and Volterra, competitive exclusion takes place when two species need the same resources, and will therefore compete until one species is removed. Many people use these forests for such activities as camping, hiking, and hunting. Because almost all the lowland forest has disappeared, the search for fuelwood is now reaching higher up the hillsides.

Both hunting and fishing need to be taken into consideration since they are naturally connected to forestry's key environmental considerations. The connections or barriers between neighbouring ecosystems have an effect on the resource balances and set limits on the communities that can be restored [ 50 ]. Students will complete a global cause and effect chart (see attached file). But there are other animals to discover here like monkeys, anteaters, and sloths.

As we saw on the map above, most of Borneo mountain rainforests cover central and north-eastern parts of the island. At this stage of cultural evolution, to ensure regular kinship succession, mating regulations begin to be connected with property.

A breathtaking tropical rainforest located between Cuzco and Bolivia, the Tambopata National Reserve in the Peruvian Amazon is one of the world’s most biologically diverse areas. Silting is a major concern with many and may be exacerbated by deforestation of the watershed.
