Changes in the environment, particularly driven by climate change, forewarn us of the dwindling diversity of exclusive mangrove plants and the charismatic animal species — especially the tiger. The Sunderbans, with its fast-changing geomorphic and hydrological character, is creeping towards Left Dipanjan Ghosh its doomsday.

This article takes a look at some such animals that feed on bark. Sometimes Many animals of the geologic past would use tree-barks as their food.
Termites feast on the bark and dinosaur that lived during even the largest land animal elephant is Late Triassic to Early Jurassic included in the consumer list. But the human race has matters including bark. Ci Cinnamon Cinnamomum zeylanicum now successfully relinquished its habit of bark is the chief source of commercial devouring bark.
Young twigs and branches are wood of plants. As a result, we avoid roots, which protects the woody plant preferred because they have a higher direct consumption of these materials. Of from outside stresses to some extent. All proportion of inner to outer bark and course, some bark is taken as medicine.
In this regard, compounds like lignin and phenol.
So, an to be an early relative of modern-day bark, and it can be referred as the living animal gnawing at the bark and soft wood humans, enjoyed a diet of bark along bark or inner bark. Instead, also proves that in the Early Pleistocene, contain nutrient-laden cell sap, organelles, it is often a normal means by which some our ancestors probably lived in a more and stored starch.
Most importantly, the animals acquire food. The inner bark is the less nutritious part of a tree. It is mainly the bark.

As are voracious eaters metabolites. However, with various microbial activities on when food is scarce, animals often turn to the bark surface, plant bark possesses tree branches and eat bark as their main huge amounts of dead organic matter diet.
The Tiny Bark-eaters Small creatures especially insects are ravenous eaters. Many of our serious and damaging insect pests feed on the bark and wood of trees. These insects attack trees that are weakened by old age, drought, overcrowding, root diseases, or weather damage.
Certain tiny organisms [Photo: Kushankur Bhattacharya] like bark-lice, mites, mealy bugs and scale insects consume bark.Dipanjan Ghosh is on Facebook.
