The central focus of Bi213 is the study of ecological populations and the issues associated with them. The previous classes have discussed the issue of global warming which has been extensively caused by the increasing carbon content in the atmosphere. The excessive carbon content in the atmosphere when absorbed by tropical rainforests helps to mitigate the effects of global warming to a large extent. Global warming is currently a serious ecological issue that rises the average temperature of the troposphere, the oceans and other ecological matter which is principally owed to the carbon dioxide emissions. The effects of global warming are quite significant in modifying or unbalancing the ecosystem and are bound to cause associated changes in the lives of the people in it with regard to their health and existence. As a result this topic discussed in Bi213 is of great societal importance and a theme of growing concern to the population.
The author of this article asserts that the extensive concern in today’s world about the global fluctuations in the climate has caused a transcending change in the interest towards attempting to reduce the carbon dioxide content in the atmosphere and curb the sources of emissions alongside. Increasing the sources of absorption and storage of carbon in other spots is a means of addressing this problem. The options for increasing the content of carbon sequestered in the tropical rainforest are to be significantly increased as they are a main part of the global carbon cycle. Deforestation and afforestation is bound to have key impacts on the amount of carbon stored in the atmosphere since more the number of trees, more shall be the amount of carbon stored apart from a series of other factors. Forests store a substantial amount of carbon that change from time to time as trees are planted and demolished. As forests die and grow and the reverse the level of carbon stored and released moves between crests and troughs, the controlling of which requires significant policy change and concerted efforts through programs that are purported to bring about the desired climate change and carbon sequestration. Observations have also noted that the leakage of carbon from the atmosphere is meant to counter the effects of carbon isolation.
