Agriculture and logging are the driving force behind clearing millions of acres of tropical rainforest each year.
Which of the following is NOT a likely result of rainforest deforestation?
Habitat destruction leads to reduced populations of plants and animals leading to a decrease in biodiversity.
A decrease in soil moisture will lead to a rapid increase in soil erosion.
Lack of vegetation leads to an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels which increase the rate of ozone destruction.
An increase in sediment in local waterways leads to increased turbidity and total dissolved solids.
A decrease in the amount of evapotranspiration will lead to increased shifts in local precipitation patterns.
