Loss of Biodiversity

In this article we will discuss Loss of Biodiversity

Loss of Biodiversity

Biodiversity is diminished or destroyed in a number of ways either by natural changes
or by human disruption. The loss of even a single species is considered as a tragedy as each form of life is a natural storehouse of irreplaceable substances the genetic materials (Ehrlich & Ehrlich, 1982). As species become extinct, the fine balance of nature is disturbed to great extent. The loss of even a single species can alter a food chain/food web, i.e. ecosystem disruption, and upset the delicate balance between one species that preys upon another.
