Should humans strive to preserve
representative samples of all biomes on the planet?
If biomes change, it can change the order of our food chain.
It is important that animals can eat other animals and that that biomes do not
change so plants and animals don’t be come extinct. As humans, we need to make
every effort to help preserve the biomes that still exist. Throughout time our
ecosystem and biomes have changed due to humans harming our environment. We are not sure what the future is going to
hold, we are aware how the changing of biomes effected our past. This knowledge
should encourage humans to want to preserve samples of biomes. “The food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink
all originate from the natural world” (Bensel
& Turk, 2014). By doing everything
we can to protect and preserve biomes will help us from furthering damaging our
environment. It is essential that we
protect biomes to help all ways of life survive on this planet.
Should humans should be concerned with
the extinction rate?
“A fundamental concern among biologists is that contemporary
rates of extinction due to human activities” (Burkhead,
2012). I fear that humans are their worst enemies.
Humans are the ones causing the mass
extinction of many different species due to human
population, habitat destruction to make way for settlements or farming, the
change in our climate, air pollution, and water pollution are all killing
species off our planet. The human population grows so fast that species don’t have time to adapt and that causes them to
become extinct. “Increasing human
population size and per capita resource use will continue to have direct and
indirect ecological and evolutionary consequences” (Yule, Fournier & Hindmarsh, 2013).
If we continue to live the way we do, there will be consequences. With a single
disappearance of a species it can impact our global
scale. Keeping our world intact is
important. We only have one planet to live on. Taking care of it is our jobs if
we plan on our ancestors surviving.
