  “Forested area in Cambodia declined percent per year from to according to the country’s government report available through the Regional Forest Observatory – Southeast Asia.”.   1. Introduction. In recent decades, tropical lowland forests have been highly disturbed and the biodiversity there is under constant threat because of selective logging [1–3], clear-felling for agriculture [3–6], fragmentation of the remaining forest [5,7–11] and the synergy between deforestation and fire [].This is particularly true in Southeast Asia, where lowland forests have been.

In addition, they include scarce primeval tropical rainforests with rich biodiversity and absorb greenhouse gases. In , Cambodia's total forest area was 11 million hectare, which stored tons of carbon each, resulting in Cambodia's forest storing billion tons of carbon per year. These ecosystems have played a unique role in the evolution of the planet's biodiversity. Tropical environments, especially humid forests, were once much more widespread than at present. Today, approximately half of all tropical regions are forests, with the remainder savannas and deserts.

Cambodia's forests are important on a national and global scale. Forests provide positive impacts on their surroundings such as watershed protection, carbon storage, recreation, and biodiversity conservation.

In addition, they include scarce primeval tropical rainforests with rich biodiversity and absorb greenhouse gases.

Our work to protect Cambodia’s biodiversity Fauna & Flora International (FFI) has been working in Cambodia for more than 20 years, supporting the government’s conservation work across the country, and was one of the first international conservation organisations on the ground following years of conflict.

A survey in the s disclosed that Cambodia had more thansquare kilometres of forests that contained many species of tropical growth and trees but not teak or other valuable sources of hardwood.

This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development.

Based on a major conference sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, Biodiversity creates a systematic. Biodiversity is the variety and variability of life on ersity is typically a measure of variation at the genetic, species, and ecosystem level.

Terrestrial biodiversity is usually greater near the equator, which is the result of the warm climate and high primary productivity. Biodiversity is not distributed evenly on Earth, and is richest in the tropics. Cambodia % —or ab, hectares—of Cambodia is forested.
