As you watch the video, focus on how life has changed for the islanders and the land itself.
What are some specific examples from the video that suggest ecosystems and the islanders’ way of life are changing?
What is a biodiversity hotspot? How does Micronesia meet the criteria for a biodiversity hotspot?
What are some of the causes for the loss of biodiversity in Micronesia? Describe at least one of the endemic species (either plant or animal) that is under threat due to habitat loss or degradation.
PART TWO (1 PAGE WITH REFFERENCE )
Population growth and distribution have significant roles to play in the sustainability of the world’s vast resources. Several studies have indicated that uncontrolled growth of deer populations lead to negative ecological consequences, including decreased biodiversity. The result of the deer overpopulation in many areas has led to radical alterations of shrub architecture, contributing to increased habitat loss for some important species.
