Forest fragmentation


With the spread of human activity, and the need to clear land for agricultural activity, roads and dwellings, large forests are gradually cut up into smaller and smaller parts. This has considerable impact on the wildlife, reducing their territories, increasing their competition for food, and increasing their exposure to other predators and parasites (as in the case of forest-dwelling birds).
