Pollution goes up and biodiversity goes down.

Air pollution can effect biodiversity as well as point source and non-point source pollution. This so because they if they build up, they can make organisms die

The greatest threat to biodiversity our human activities such as hunting, pollution, etc.

water pollution affect biodiversity be killing some of the fish and as the fish die there are less and less spices that live in that lack and area

Which of the following is a value of biodiversity?A. Invasive species B. Climate change C.Healthy ecosystems D. Pollution

Pollution, constructing taking awaying speices homes

pollution,climatic changes,land use change

The human activities that are threats to biodiversity are habitat destruction, poaching, pollution, and exotic species.

Positively, pollution affects biodiversity by potentially increasing the mutation rate and applying pressure or stimuli to populations to move or adapt. Negatively, pollution can harm or kill members of a population indiscriminately, or reduce fecundity. They will also not be able to have sex as much

pollution, habitat destruction, introduced species, and overexploitation.

over-exploitation pollution habitat destruction

Biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth. Biodiversity include the genetic variety among individuals in a species, the number of species in an ecosystem and the variety of ecosystems in the biosphere. The main factors causing the threat to biodiversity are pollution, habitat destruction, introduced species and overexploitation.

Humans reduce biodiversity by altering habitats, hunting, introducing invasive species, releasing pollution into food webs, and contributing to climate change.

pollution, habitat destruction, introduced species, and over-exploitation

- Climate change. - Pollution. - Deforestation. - Overpopulation.

Some species are more sensitive to pollution than others. When a sensitive species becomes extinct due to the effects of pollution it has an effect on other species that depend on it.

Some consequences of water pollution would be the decrease in biodiversity, extinction and the mutation of organisms. This is because water pollution kills organisms and changes food chains.

yes, pollution can relate to a certain organism killing all of that type of organism, if breeding does not occur immediately and this happens again biodiversity will begin to tarnish, but pollution has more of an effect on an ecosystem if said ecosystem doesn't have a good sense of biodiversity. If an environment isn't varied one disease or type of pollution can wipe out the entire population. This has happened before when a type of aphid attacking only hemlock trees appeared. The entire hemlock population was almost wiped out

Both are facing increasing pollution and both are experiencing a loss of biodiversity.

Both are facing increasing pollution. Both are experiencing a loss of biodiversity.

1. Air pollution 2. Water pollution. 3. Waste production 4. Loss of Biodiversity 5. Food Supply
