What is copper phytomining?
The world is running out of rich copper ores. Research is being carried out to find new ways to extract copper from the remaining low-grade ores, without harming the environment too much. This research is very important, as traditional mining involves huge open-cast mines that produce a lot of waste rock. Some plants absorb copper through their roots. As a result of this they concentrate these compounds as a result of this. The plants can be burned to produce an ash that contains the copper compounds. This process is known as photomining.

How do catastrophic events affect the ecosystem?
The impact depends on the event. If a catastrophic economic event such as the Great Depression occurs then the ecosystem will not be affected except if the event results in less trees and crops being planted. However if a catastrophic event such as a large meteorite impact occurs then the ecosystem will be adversely affected in a big way.
