Biodiversity loss

Change of land use edit

Quote from Seabloom et al. (2020):

Conversion of land to human-dominated uses, such as agriculture, is the single greatest terrestrial extinction threat and also leads to biological invasions and alterations of many ecosystem processes (Pimm et al., 1995; Seabloom et al., 2006; Ellis, 2011; Newbold et al., 2016; Higgins, 2017; Tilman et al., 2017; Barger et al., 2018).
