  • 27. Should we be concerned about biodiversity?<br />What we know:The Earth is losing species at an alarming rate<br />Some scientists estimate that as many as 3 species per hour are going extinct and 20,000 extinctions occur each year.<br />when species of plants and animals go extinct, many other species are affected. <br />
  • 28. Threats to biodiversity<br />Habitat destruction<br />Pollution<br />Species Introductions<br />Global Climate Change<br />Exploitation<br />
