Habitat is cleared for crops and mines; agrochemicals impact insect pollinators and make their way into the wider environment; and soils are degraded from unsustainable farming practices and the expansion of infrastructure.

Regenerative Agriculture: Agricultural Revolution or Carbon Pricing Capitalism?

CleanTech Group

Regenerative agriculture is about improving soil through better farm practices. The aim is to use farming practices that increase soil health through increased biodiversity, water retention, topsoil protection, and other farming process improvements.

Ancient Amazonian societies managed the forest intensively but sustainably—here's what we can learn from them

Eco-Business

The Amazon’s trees, soils and mysterious earthworks tell the story of the millions who lived there before European arrival and suggest a way of life that can sustain large populations while still conserving biodiversity

5 Ways Bog Mats Help Protect Environment

Energy Refuge

Stops Soil Erosion. Bog mats ensure that the natural nutrients and minerals in the soil remain undisturbed and create short-term access through these regions. An area`s biodiversity is significantly affected by earthworms and beetles as they depend on the soil for sustenance and shelter. There isn’t a better way to protect the ground yet make a conscious effort to leave the soil immaculate after completion of the task. Biodiversity environment Forests

Leaving trees alone might be better than planting new ones

Grist

We need to protect and improve the carbon sequestration by agricultural soils and grazing lands. Even what we think of as mature forests are still accumulating carbon because carbon makes up about roughly half of the dry weight of wood, but it is also in the soils.

But how do these land use changes impact agriculture, biodiversity, and other considerations? 5 GtCO 2 for direct air capture, and a maximum of about 5 GtCO 2 for soil carbon sequestration.

The Amazon has lost over 10 million football fields of forest in a decade

AGreenLiving

For one, the Amazon rainforest is a biodiversity hotspot, home to thousands of plant and animal species at risk of endangerment and extinction. Also, the loss of trees and other vegetation causes soil erosion, which increases the risks for flooding and a host of other problems such as land loss for indigenous people and habitat loss for endemic flora and fauna species.
