News article: New study reveals catastrophic loss of Cambodia's tropical flooded grasslands

News article: New study reveals catastrophic loss of Cambodia's tropical flooded grasslands | Tropical Grasslands | Scoop.it
Around half of Cambodia's tropical flooded grasslands have been lost in just 10 years according to new research from the University of East Anglia.
tns2274's insight:
Cambodia is rapidly losing their flooded tropical grasslands. Many factors such as rice farming with irritations channels and other factors are causing a degradation of the biome in the area. This causes many problems for the organisms that inhabit the area. This has led to many negative impacts such as a 28% lost to intensive cultivation and a bird population decline of 44%.

tns2274's insight:
Savannahs cover a lot of area but receive little rainfall. As a result they are being destroyed and the animals that live there, such as lions, are hurt by the bad conditions. A significant amount of land and animals have been hurt.

Case Study
