Wildfires can destroy entire habitats of plants and wipe out life over miles of land. Once these fires clear large areas of vegetation the loss of plants can heighten the risk of significant erosion and landslides. In sudden rainfall these cleared areas become extremely dangerous and some observers have even reported soil “glassification,” where the silica in the soils become melted and fused, forming an impermeable layer in the soil. This impermeable layer can make it very difficult for future plants to grow back and for animals to re-inhabit the area. Although many don’t think of a benefit to wildfires in the biosphere, there are some positive outcomes of wildfires.
(Stevens) This in line with disease can cause a detrimental decrease in the wolf population. Other things that can affect the population include precision rates, natural disasters and soil fertility.(Chadwick). As the wolf population decreases their is a loss in all of their roles that were mentioned above. These include a loss of diversity, a lack of the damn and thus a pond, and an increases an increase in the Elk population. With a decrease of wolf population also comes a later increase in population.
For example, people’s desire to taste shark fin soup has tormented many sharks by having them living without fins and finally die in pain. Also, the vast release of carbon dioxide from people’s factories, uses of the air conditioner and cars has resulted in global warming, which afflicts polar bears to near extinction. Similarly, deforestation excessively annihilates habitats of many forest animals, resulting in an immense decrease in their population. All of these do not represent harmony in nature at all. If humans continue to ruin the shelters of animals, no wonder humans will die eventually because of the unbalanced population of each species and the destruction of the world.
David Andrews, Everglades National Park director states, “this program is what has paid for all of the pythons to be removed from the Everglades National Park area. Without the funding, the pythons would continue to over populate and decrease the mammal population even further. It would also allow the pythons to continue preying on the endangered species in the area until they could possibly become extinct.” Scientist are especially worried about the overpopulation of these snakes because of the diminishing population of animals. All of which led to the decrease of native trees, plants and fish-eating birds. It is also feared by local officials that it is only a matter of time before the snakes harm a visitor at the Everglades National Park.
