Man's Impact On The Environment by Mind Map: Man's Impact On The Environment

1. Meat Production

1.1. Cause: Increased consumption of meat and animal products

1.2. Effect: Resources such as fossil fuels, water and land and depleted quickly to rear animals. Emission of methane gas from cows and pigs due to flatulence and eructation.

2. Deforestation

2.1. Cause: To meet increasing demands for land and wood

2.2. Effect: Soil erosion: Topsoil is washed away and could lead to landslide. Flooding: Caused by soil erosion, soil deposited into streams and rivers, water levels rising rapidly. Desertification: Destruction of land leading to desert-like conditions. Climate changes: Less rainwater retained in roots of trees, less water vapour given out during transpiration=less rainfall
