Description
Changes in biodiversity, both natural and caused by human activities, are intimately tied to changes in ecosystem status. The environment in which species live will affect their chances of movement, survival, and adaptation; for example, abrupt changes in vegetation cover can modify the risk of predation experienced by some species, and therefore change the relative abundance of their populations. But because species express a variety of biological functions, they too change the status of their ecosystem; for example, harmful algal blooms will disrupt the physical and chemical composition of water, which can lead to localized extinctions, and send rippling effec...
