THE CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF BIODIVERSITY DECLINES


Loss of biodiversity is probably the greatest threat to our continued existence on Earth, yet it is the most neglected issue. Many pay lip service to the dire consequences of loss of ecological biodiversity but far too little is being done about it. Do your research and discover the extent of the problem then write an essay in which you discuss both the precipitating factors and the threat it poses.
Familiarize yourself with the issue
