A deforestation is an act by humans of changing or destroying forest habitats and ecosystems. In doing so, they remove an essential natural element from the environment that supports human life while reducing carbon dioxide emissions. A new study shows that plant life is naturally absorbing more carbon dioxide than scientists previously thought.

Deforestation may also be understood as the removal of forests, which results in a number of ecological and environmental imbalances as well as a decrease in habitat and biodiversity. Deforestation can be caused by a number of factors, including urbanisation, mining, fires, logging, and agricultural operations.


To give you a better idea of how plants can do this, it was discovered that, as plants and trees grow, they absorb organic material released as part of the decomposition process. This organic material then gets converted into the wood, creating a carbon sink for the greenhouse gas.
