Conservation of Plants and Animals
Discuss the effects of deforestation on the following.
(a) Wild animals
(c) Villages (Rural areas)
(d) Cities (Urban areas)
(f) The next generation
Clearing forests by cutting trees on large scale is called deforestation.
(a) Deforestation will destroy the natural habitat of wild animals. The animals will not able to breed in absence of their natural habitat that leads to their extinction.
(b) Deforestation result in fewer trees which means less carbon dioxide will be used by trees due to which the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will increase. The carbon dioxide gas traps the heat rays of the sun reflected by the Earth. The increased level of carbon dioxide results in an increase in the temperature of the Earth’s surface. This leads to global warming.
(c) The people living in a village depend on the forest for their resources like wood, vegetables, fruits, fuels, etc. Deforestation will lead to the destruction of their resources which causes danger to their lives.
(d) People who live in cities depend on the people that live in the village for their resources. So, deforestation ultimately affects the livelihood of the people living in urban areas. It increases natural calamities like floods, global warming, etc, which will affect the health and livelihood of the people.
(e) Plants absorb underground water through their roots and release it into the atmosphere in the form of water vapor during transpiration. This water vapor goes up and forms clouds and helps in bringing rain. The rainwater gets percolated into the ground and stored as underground water.
Deforestation means fewer trees results in less rainfall which leads to a decrease in the underground level. When the fertile top layer of soil is removed, the lower, hard, and rocky layer of soil is exposed. This layer of soil has less humus and is less fertile. Plants do not grow well in this less fertile soil. When the fertile land gets converted into deserts it is called desertification.
(f) The next generation will be deprived of the beautiful and useful flora and fauna. The increased level of carbon dioxide gas in the air and pollution caused by deforestation affects the health of our next generation.

What our students and parents say about us!
Saiyam is using EduSaksham online courses from past one year. He is able to complete his tutorials, worksheets, and assignments on his own. Once he is done with worksheets, he can check his answers and if he has done any mistakes, then he can check the correct answers and explanations. They have been given so well that he is able to understand them himself and rarely he asks us for any clarification. He enjoys using the platform and has learned and improved a lot in Mathematics. I would recommend EduSaksham to all parents who want their kids to learn in a structured way and also enjoy the learning process.
Neeraj (Saiyam's Father)
I would like to thank Edusaksham on behalf of my son Aditya who attended " Math Olympiad crash course for 5 weeks". As per Aditya, this course helped him to understand new topics like Roman numerals and decimal places which were not taught in his school till date and had a better understanding of other topics. I personally thank EduSaksham for all the help and support.
Geeta Bansal (Aditya's Mother)
We had a good experience with EduSaksham. Because sheets are available online, Vedant enjoyed doing more and more sheets without any reminders. I could leave him on his own as he was very much motivated to cover the topics. Practice is very important in maths but it becomes difficult for us to prepare sheets, I am glad we found EduSaksham where in a lot of in a lot of sheets are available for practice and the quality of questions are also good. As it's a venture from IITians we could think of giving it a try and I am glad we tried
Shikha Chowdhary (Vedant's Mother)
I have grown up in a family where my father used to give me practice maths paper every day which I need to finish before I go to play. I think that strong foundation of solving new questions every day helped me to clear my IITJEE exam. But as working women, I always had time challenge to create practice Math papers for my daughter. Thanks to EduSaksham, their questions are so logical and conceptual that I don't feel the guilt of not creating practice questions by myself :). There are plenty of worksheet along with the tutorials for each chapter. It has made parents life easier :) And the best part is my daughter loves doing it. Thank you EduSaksham.
