Knowledge gap

"It is possible that logging may have a positive effect, because when you remove some trees, there's more light reaching the others," says Guariguata. "On the other hand, when you alter the structure of the forest the pollinator bees may be disrupted, which could reduce fruit production. But we just don't know."
