>Rainfall and cloud patterns in much of the tropics are a result of transpiration of tropical plants rather than broader weather patterns, and so clearing these moist forests has led to reduced cloud cover and rainfall in wide swaths of surrounding natural habitat as well as the plantations themselves.>
