Project #11567 - Science

Write a  500 word paper about biodiversity, conservation biology, and what it means for a species to be threatened, endangered, or extinct. Address the following items:

 

·        What is conservation biology? What is biodiversity? (Please put these definitions in your own words)

 

·        Describe what a species is and compare what is meant by a threatened species, an endangered species, and an extinct species. Provide at least one example each of a threatened, endangered, and extinct species, and explain why these species meet the criteria.  (This should be in paragraph form.)

 

·        Explain how different species contribute to biodiversity and why conservation biologists are concerned with specific species.

 

Cite at least three references, one of which must be from a peer-reviewed journal. Wikipedia, Hubs, Blogs, and similar types of resources are not acceptable references.

 

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines for papers and references.

 

 

150 word.

Conservation biology, where biology is the study of life, has developed over the years as a way for scientists to address the loss of biodiversity. Whether it is destruction of rainforest or the creation of GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms), humans are at the root of the problem. 

Most people are concerned about the loss of rainforests, but most do not think about the problem caused by GMO's. There has been no outcry about the use of GMO's in the U.S. Virtually all grains in the U.S. and half the fruits and vegetables are genetically modified, which reduces biodiversity to a single point. Apparently, the potato famine in Ireland in the 1850's is ancient history.

 

Why is there lack of attention to this problem?
