Zebras, for example, eat the coarse, tough tops of grasses, while wildebeest prefer their leafy, middle parts. Biological Conservation 114(1):56-67. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2010.09.021 Laurance, W. Low-growing plants, particularly in the igapo. can be sub- merged for most of the year, enjoying only a brief spell above water.

The distribution of the different species of oak illustrate well their relation to soils and the underlying bedrock. Above this lie the high-altitude grasslands. These competing claims and visions render the forests of B. Many are pollinated by a single species of insect, or just one sex of a species, which makes them among the most specialized of flowering plants and particularly vulnerable to extinction.

Firewood and charcoal are examples of wood being used as fuel. Outline the origin, formation and biological consequences of acid precipitation on plants and animals. However, some of the characteristic features of the Malagasy biota may in fact be a much older legacy of the former distribution of rainforest animal and plant groups that were present in the long-vanished Tertiary rainforests of eastern Africa (or on the northwards moving sub-continent of India) that have managed to reach Madagascar but have since died out where they came from.

The forests grew near the equator during the late Devonian period, and could provide an insight into the cause of a 15-fold reduction in levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere around that time. As well, these monocultures did not provide minor forest products, an important source of income, especially for women. The canopy openness at the height is not shaded by vegetation directly above.
