Forests:

Trees cover about 30% of the Earth's total land area, but the forests are unevenly distributed around the world, with just 10 countries possessing two-thirds of the total, whilst 64 countries have less than 10% of their land area as forest cover. Just over a third of the world's forests are truly wild places with no visible indications of human activity. Only 4% are forest plantations, growing trees to order mostly for the paper industry. The remainder of the world's forests is a somewhat haphazard alliance between people and plants, supporting the livelihood of an estimated 1.6 billion people. Some of them manage to do this sustainably, but an awful lot do not.


Generally speaking, the richest biodiversity, measured in terms of the variety of plants, birds and other species in any given place, is to be found in the wild forests that are remote from humans.

Broadly speaking, the world's forests grow in two great lateral bands, one stretching across northern latitudes and incorporating the forests of North America, Scandinavia, and Russia. This band is of the type of forest known as 'temperate and boreal'. These contain the type of trees that are most familiar to people in Britain, with a mix of broadleaf trees such as oak, ash, sycamore, and chestnut along with evergreen and needle leaf varieties such as pine, spruce and larch. The other major band runs across latitudes in the southern hemisphere and incorporates the forests of South America, Central Africa, and Asia. These are tropical forests and are not all rainforests, as some of them are at higher altitudes or by the coast where they form mangrove forests. Mangroves are particularly important. They are tidal forests and have important functions as natural sea defenses, breeding grounds for fish, and habitats for lots of other species.
