If we didn’t most of the plants we have, including farm crops and any type of garden, would die off. If all the plants die off the animals that eat the plants will die off and then would follow the animals that ate those animals and so on. This is why we need to start raising bees, not just for the bees, but for plants and the environment.
This is very abrupt since Red Pandas are protected in China, India, Bhutan, and Nepal. They are victim to habitat loss from deforestation or humans’ clear-cutting of their nature ecosystem. You’d think that we would stop clear-cutting their ecosystem after we learnt that they are endangered, however their natural ecosystem is still diminishing as more of their ecosystem is lost to logging and to the ecosystems’ alteration to agroecosystems. Habitat loss and fragmentation are causing the loss of red panda nesting trees and bamboo that the red panda consumes. Logging and other forms of ecosystem damages have caused a disruption or disturbance in the equilibrium of the ecosystem and have given an advantage to the seasonal monsoon; allowing it to hurl rich soil down mountainsides.
Discussion Questions 1. Several factors that contributed to the extinction of trees on the island included the constant chopping of trees to build canoes, to transport statues, to build to plant gardens, and to burn them for fires. The large population of rats that chewed palm nuts, also contributed to the extinction of trees. 2. If I would have arrived on the island before the tree populations were extinct, I would have advised the Easter Islanders to slow down the production of canoes, statues, houses, and gardens.
Many beekeepers think that this reason causes bees to fade away. Also in the wild, honey bees usually live in one place at a time and have a winter break to store up their food. Farmers today travel their bees around the country to help grow and pollinate their crops. When they do this they take time away from the bees resting period and this causes bees to die. Pesticides, which kill certain plants, animals, and fungi, cause another reason for the bees deaths.
The reason for this is because Bald Eagles started declining and left no competition for Goldens. Also ranchers brought in pigs which gave Goldens more prey. After the Goldens took over the area, the foxes started to decline because the Golden Eagles preyed upon the foxes. The foxes then died of diseases from dogs.
Gone With the Bee In the article, “A Real Buzzkill,” by Steve Ellis and Erich Pica it is describing how honeybees are dying off at an alarming rate, how the deaths of honeybees are affecting humans, and how countries are reacting to honeybees deaths. Apple,milk, butter, and coffee have one thing in common and that is without honeybees’ pollination they would disappear. “But thanks in part to the rampant use of powerful pesticides,known as neonicotinoids, these busy bees are quickly vanishing.”Neonicotinoids are being used on 140 different crops by farmers, even though it has no effect on the crops; however, they are killing bees by damaging their nervous system, weakening their memories, and destroying their ability to fly.
One difference was in the movie “The Lorax” the Once-ler was using technology. He polluted the air with gases which caused the animals to leave. The Once-ler also polluted the waters which caused the humming fish to leave also. As for the Polynesians on Easter island did not have technology so the used trees. Since the Polynesians deforested their island they ate all of the birds and fish on the island later moving to cannibalism.
Some animals are starting their migration earlier and other animals are going to higher elevations (higher than they should) to get cooler weather. There are some creatures that are thriving because of the heat, one of them is the bark beetle. The bark beetle is killing off trees by eating at the inner bark cutting off its circulatory system, leaving the trees with little to none nutrients to live on. Another thing that is killing off trees is wildfires. The amount of
These ‘armyworms’ are not only in South Africa but also in some neighbouring countries as well. These pests destroy the farmers’ maize by damaging the leaves; the farmers are then left with the maize without its leaves and this has a negative impact because some of the maize has not yet ripen and so they are then destroyed by the pests. It will cost farmers a lot of money to buy the pesticides to remove the pests and also to try preventing them from having access to the maize again. The pests have affected farmers in a way that there has been a decline in the maize production which will then result in a deficit for farmers as it will be impossible to make profits during this time.

Levels found from these samples were enough to cause detrimental health effects. In a separate study, they found that over half of plants at a major garden store contained neonicotinoids. These levels were high enough to kill a bee instantly. In a study from 2016, 35 different pesticides and fungicides were collected from pollen that bees used to pollinate food crops in five U.S. states. Bees that came in contact with these combinations of chemicals were more likely to be infected with the Varroa Mite, a parasite that is associated with Colony Collapse Disorder.
For instance an attacking army launched infected corpses via catapult over walls of the city they were trying to take siege on in hopes that the smell would make them flee. In reality all they did was kill off most of the city by infecting them all with the plague (Dobson 13). No one realized that before an outbreak of the plague, many rats died. The connection between rats and the plague was made only a century or so ago die to advances in science and technology (“Plague” 1). Sometimes the plague goes from being bubonic to pneumonic, meaning it was able to be spread from person to person in the air via droplets from their lungs (“Plague” 1).
“Dead dish and gooey vegetable matter were exposed and rotted, while swarms of insects droned in the heavy, humid air.” Even though no one had cared about how sanitary the city was this was one of the reasons the disease spread. All the rotten foods and dead animals attracted mosquitoes which then spread the disease from one person to the next. Environment around the people did a major part in spreading the deadly
