Dying planet: the extinction of species Discovering Earth Science Series.

In biology, extinction is the termination of a kind of organism or of a group of kinds (taxon), usually a species. The moment of extinction is generally considered to be the death of the last individual of the species, although the capacity to breed. The moment of extinction is generally considered to be the death of the last individual of the species, although the capacity to breed and recover may have been lost before this point. Because a species' potential range may be very large, determining this moment is difficult, and is usually done retrospectively.

If species go extinct, the argument went, then sooner or later all living beings on Earth would disappear and the Earth over time . Lyell accepted the local extinction of species as consequences of climatic change, competition and human activity (like in the case of the Dodo).

If species go extinct, the argument went, then sooner or later all living beings on Earth would disappear and the Earth over time would become a barren wasteland. However, in February of 1796, the French naturalist George Cuvier presented convincing evidence that a newly described species of elephant – Elephas primigenius – was an extinct creature of the distant past and unlike any living species.

Species extinction risk: Approximately 25% of species are already threatened with extinction in most . We know that the way people eat today is often unhealthy for them and for the planet," said Dr Kate Brauman, one of the report's authors.

Species extinction risk: Approximately 25% of species are already threatened with extinction in most animal and plant groups studied. Natural ecosystems: Natural ecosystems have declined by 47% on average, relative to their earliest estimated states. We can become healthier as individuals by eating more diverse diets, with more vegetables, and we can also make the planet healthier by growing that food in more sustainable ways.

Only 15 left in stock (more on the way). --Andrew M. Bush, Science. Extinction is a very enjoyable read.

Number of species gone extinct. Large bodied animal and rare species are more prone to the changes caused by humans to the planet. Extinctions have happened several times in our geological history and they were mostly caused by natural events such as comets and volcanic eruption. ome causes remain unknown. But definitely, the current dilemma of Rhinos, Tigers, Bluefin Tuna and Gorillas is unnatural. Extinctions can disrupt our ecological processes like pollination and seed distribution and a collapse of the food chain which can cause more extinctions.
