Abstract Biodiversity and ecosystem are crucial issues that have an impact to the human well-being now and in the future. Biodiversity depends on many factors but the most influentive is the habitat loss which influences the biodiversity worldwide. Humans converts native areas into agriculture and industrial areas without realising how much impact it has now and will have in the future. Habitat loss is connected with fragmentation which influence the increasing amount of extinction.
Natural and Man-Made Disaster and their Impact on Environment
Holocene extinction - Wikipedia
The loss of biodeversity would be the diminishing of dfferent species within that ecosystem. For example, a lake may be the home to many types of fish. This type of fish may die out and leave the lake with one less species in it. The loss of one fish or food source may impact other populations and furthe diminish species diversity. Invasive Species — plants or animals which have moved to a habitat where they were not naturally found and are more successful than local species. Habitat loss — Agriculture, housing and industry are destroying the habitats of many plants, animals and microbes. Our development means we must destory or decrease the natural ecosystems.
Biodiversity can be defined as the variability and variety of life on our planet. This includes the variety in ecosystems, species and genetics. The level of Biodiversity usually increases with the temperature, meaning that it is higher in warm climate zones near the equator. With greater Biodiversity, the variety of plants increases. This leads to more opportunities, especially for farmers, since they are able to plant a greater variety of crops and thus use their land more effectively.
