    Researchers have found decreasing of up to ninety percent in specific kind of birds. Population declines generally have a number of fundamental factors including habitat fragmentation, habitat loss and pollution. Birds are very weak because their food and habitat cannot move as fast as they can. Fluctuating global temperature is one of the factors that threaten birds. Precipitation is another issue of climate change that significantly influences bird species.…

  • Inbreeding Patterns

    may also be the change the puma females are choosing to mate with kin such as some animals do in the Puurtinen 2011 study, and this new behavior would be perhaps caused by a genetic defect that spread in the population. Maintaining and restoring habitat connectivity is very important for small populations of large carnivores. If migrations are not frequent enough to maintain genetic diversity, we can result in dominance of the gene pool by few males, which may be detrimental to the populations’…

  • Deforestation In The Amazon Rainforest

    Selective logging may not seem like the biggest cause of forest fragmentation, but “the detrimental impacts of selective logging may extend many years, especially when considering that many forest structural properties, such as deep canopies, associated with wildlife habitat in intact forests, are not likely to be regained for 30-50 years or more following logging” (Broadbent, 1752). Canopy openings caused by agriculture…

  • Ethics In Architecture

    development have potential negative impact on the natural habitats, affecting plant species and wildlife. When designing a building the consideration also goes into the construction material which are processed and delivered through process which impact biodiversity negatively. Therefore, as architects it our duty to protect sensitive sites and minimizing the damage to the ecology. We also have the opportunity to enhance the biodiversity by creating habitat as part of the construction or…

  • Riparian Zone

    quality and wildlife habitat. A riparian zone refers to stream bank system, including the stream, soils, flora, and fauna within it. Riparian buffers, specifically, are one of the most significant structures to implement along streams and rivers because of the structure’s many functions and abilities. Riparian buffer zones act as a canopy to shade and cool stream temperatures, as a filter strip to attenuate sediment, pollutant, and nutrient runoff, and as a wildlife habitat, all wrapped into one…
