International scientific think-tank warns that the only pristine forests in the world taiga which cover large territories in Russia, Canada, Alaska and Scandinavia, quickly degrade.
      Taiga plays a significant role in smoothing greenhouse effect and global climate warming. Its history knows only two disasters insect invasions and fires, which were natural controls over taiga areas.
      However, human impact becomes more and more visible we cut trees, extract valuable mineral and build houses instead of forests. Forest fires now happen oftener due to human impact and climate warming. Taiga splits into small fragments, which are unsuitable for normal life of large forest animals.
      Researchers claim that Russian taiga suffers the heaviest defragmentation and area loss. Unfortunately, pride of Russia can soon share the lot of Amazonian rainforests, which are now irreversibly degraded.
