Project #35122 - Effects of Erosion Pape

Part A

BUDGET IS $15.00  

The paper must be 1,050 words.

Sedimentation from erosion is one of the world’s most significant water challenges. 

Choose either an urban or a rural setting and write a paper on the effects of erosion and the control techniques for erosion. In the paper, include the following:

  • Describe the hydrological cycle.
  • Explain vegetation’s role in the hydrological cycle.
  • In the setting you chose, describe the vegetation and the hydrological cycle.
  • Describe the most common soil nutrient cycles in terms of nutrient availability.
  • Explain the process of erosion in the setting that you chose.
  • Explain how plants prevent or contribute to erosion.
  • Explain how to manage erosion.

Part B

Questions

1.      People are constantly changing land use, which causes alterations in vegetation types. What are some examples and the effects of such changes in an area where you live?

 

2.       As we talk about landscape changes influenced by human activities and their effects on the environment, I thought I'd share and interesting article I found recently on how these changes are affecting populations of songbirds in North America. Many different species of birds take long annual migrations, some that even traverse the great oceans from one continent to another. Many others have more regional movement patterns, and it has often been suggested that these birds use larger landscape features (like forests) observable form the sky to find their ways to their destinations, which are often summer breeding grounds or returning home to where they lay their eggs. The article linked below examines some already observable short-term effects of changing landscapes across parts of North America, as morphological features of some songbirds have begun to potentially shift in response to these changes that have reduced their available habitats, requiring less migration and augmenting to different modes of flying.  Read the article and consider the questions:

 

Could this happen to another group of animals other than birds? Do an online search and look for any article linking similar morphological changes in response to human activities on the environment.

 

How could we lessen the impacts upon indigenous species of wildlife while still needing to transform habitats?

3.      Are there any examples of toxic algae problems in any of the water bodies near where you live? If so, do a little research on the area and present some information for the class to discuss.  If no such areas exist around you, research the effects of toxic algal blooms on the environment and the potential impacts on human populations as well.
