Abstract

What happens to biodiversity as the environment changes? Are species able to adapt and survive or will they go extinct? These are important questions that are unfortunately difficult to answer. This is because all kinds of communities and their inhabitants react differently to changes. Habitat degradation and loss, habitat fragmentation and climate change are the three major threats to biodiversity. All kinds of ecosystems are threatened and humans will also be affected. A combination of the effects of the threats enlarges the severity of the threats. Human activities also attribute to the severity of it. Nature provides a lot of different services to us, however, nature will only be able to provide these services if a broad level of diversity is maintained. This is of course a very important factor to make sure that biodiversity will be conserved.
