1999-2Biodiversity; Millennium in Maps - Geographic Map Poster
Thefragile balance of plants and animals that share the Earth tookmillions of years to develop. Some life forms have persisted innearly their original state, surviving episodes of mass extinction.Some, like ourselves, are relative newcomers. However, because ofinterconnections in species, if the reduction in this biodiversitycontinues at it's current rate, the results will be profound. Themap-side of this important study contains a world map of thecontinents with insets of a few of the threatened life forms –threats coming from a loss of habitat, introduction of invasivespecies, overharvesting, pollution, among other factors – mostlyman-made threats. The reverse-side discusses the threats tobiodiversity with insets of land use in each of the continents andengages in a conversation about the medicinal plants and animals thatcould be lost if we don't engage in conservation.
