Sustainability of soil, water and forest in tropical forest
MetadataShow full item record
The sustainability of the system soil-forest-water involves essential variables such as soil conservation and its productive potential, the maintenance of plant’s and animal’s biodiversity, the maintenance of the hydrological processes, the dynamic of surface and groundwater, the intensity of human activities and the use and management plans related to the forest. These are fundamental in the biodiversity and water resources conservation. Considering that soil conservation is the basis of production, forest is essential in soil protection. The sustainability of water in watersheds is provided by both elements. The sustainable development is consolidated by this interactivity. This depends on the boosting of environmental values about nature conservation, management and use of natural resources in a sustainable way for the preservation of life on the planet.
