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