Watch the video above on how the re-introduction of wolves back into Yellowstone National Park positively impacted the biodiversity and ecology of the local environment.
The re-introduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park is an excellent example of the importance of biodiversity to ecosystems. It turns out that the apex predator, feared by people for years, was critical to the health of the local ecology, with a relatively small impact on the local ranching practices.
For this assignment, you will explore the importance of Biodiversity. Then, write a paper (5-6 pages APA format )that addresses the following questions:
- Because new species will eventually evolve to replace those that humans are driving to extinction, why is declining biology diversity such a threat?
- Your textbook describes several causes of declining biological diversity. Choose an animal, plant, or ecosystem that you are interested in and discuss the most important cause of its decline. Be sure it include any indirect causes, influencing the direct causes.
- What type of human activities have contributed to the decline of your organism(s)? (This may be combined with the above bullet if appropriate.
- Develop a method to restore your organism and/or it’s ecosystem. Why would your method work? What resources would be required? How will you convince other people to go along with it (do you need to convince a local community or local, state, federal government; another country, etc.)
You may use books, journals, magazines, and any website ending in .edu, .gov, or.org. All other websites must be approved by me first. However, any info taken from a website must have an author. If no author is given, then it is an inappropriate source for a college paper. Information from sources with no author will not count toward your points in the project.
You may NOT use encyclopedia-type websites like Wikipedia, Britannica, Encarta, FactMonster, etc., nor videos or television shows even if they are documentaries.
