Yes. Changing surrounding is natural. Tropical is like our GUT. Microbial flora keep changing.
 
However, this does not allow antibiotics type total wipe out logging. When such alterations are imposed on GUT or Tropical forests, we invite collapse. When GUT is collapsed, life collapse. When tropical forest collapse, Mother earth collapse.
 
But as mother nature does not like vacuum, such havoc does not go on for long. Mother rewire things again. But in history of mankind, you and your generation will be known as most dumb generation.

Humans have been altering tropical forests for at least 45,000 years

Tens of thousands of years of controlled burns, forest management and clear-cutting have implications for modern conservation efforts – and shatter the image of the “untouched” tropical forest.

August 03, 2017

The first review of the global impact of humans on tropical forests in the ancient past shows that humans have been altering these environments for at least 45,000 years. This counters the view that tropical forests were pristine natural environments prior to modern agriculture and industrialization. The study, published today in Nature Plants, found that humans have in fact been having a dramatic impact on such forest ecologies for tens of thousands of years, through techniques ranging from controlled burning of sections of forest to plant and animal management to clear-cutting. Although previous studies had looked at human impacts on specific tropical forest locations and ecosystems, this is the first to synthesize data from all over the world.

  1. What do you think about bacteriophages ? Instead of antibiotics, they could be used. There was a lot of soviet research on it but it got simply branded as “communist science” during the cold war era but now it seems west is taking notice.
