Environmental Impacts of Deforestation

Environmental Impacts of Deforestation
Jennifer Croft

Your essay should include five paragraphs, as follows:

  • Paragraph 1 is your lead paragraph. It will contain an overview of what you have to say about these three topics: disruption of the carbon cycle, disruption of the hydrologic (water) cycle, and the reduction of species diversity.
  • Paragraphs 2, 3, and 4, are your body paragraphs.
    • Paragraph 2 should describe how deforestation disrupts the carbon cycle.
    • In paragraph 3, you’ll write about how deforestation disrupts the hydrologic (water) cycle.
    • In paragraph 4, you’ll explain how deforestation is related to declining species diversity.
  • Paragraph 5 is your conclusion paragraph. Here, you can describe how you feel about the three effects of deforestation discussed, and what we might do about it.

It’s permissible to use direct quotes from your reading, but don’t use too many. One to three such quotes should be your limit. Be sure to put a direct quote in quotation marks. For example: According to Smith, “Carbon dioxide is both our friend and our enemy.”

Begin by writing a first draft. Then, edit and rework your material to make it clear and concise. After you have reached a final draft, proofread the essay one last time to locate and correct grammar and spelling errors.
