The bar chart shows the total area logged in the Southern region in four different years, and the table shows the number of mammals, birds, and amphibian species in this region. A glance at the illustration reveals that login activities in the Southern area increased over time, and the number of species as an effect has decreased.
Back to the details, 75 thousand acres of forest were cut down in 1990, which just doubled in 10 years. Finally, in 2010, precisely 225 thousand acres of forest were logged down, more than thrice the logging area in 1990. The table shows that in 1998 there were 13 mammals, 27 birds, and 15 amphibian species in the Southeast forests, which kept decreasing over time.
In just four years, 2 mammal species disappeared from the forest and in 10 years, 6 mammal species disappeared. The worst case was for birds; in 2008, the number of bird species declined to only 11 from the initial figure of 27 in 1998. In the case of amphibians, more than 6 species got lost from the forest in just 10 years.
