Biodiversity can be defined as the variety of life, such as

plants and animals, in the world or in a particular ecosystem.

Industrialization affects biodiversity primarily because the more

that people build up buildings, homes, offices this means that

usually more and more forest/tree land is being cut down to allow

space for it. When this happens, the homes of the animals and

plants that were living in that area are now destroyed. Advancing

technology without taking into consideration the environmental

impacts is also dangerous for biodiversity. This is because the

omissions or side effects of certain technological advancements can

also negatively impact the environment and, in turn,

biodiversity.
