  8. This is a relatively short periods of time when a lot of species die

  9. Mass extinction

  10. Extinction is a term applied to this.

  11. Species

  12. The mass extinction occurring today differs from those that occurred in the past because of this.

  13. It is mainly due to the action of one species

  14. This typically follows a mass extinction

  15. Rapid evolution of one species

  16. In today’s pattern of extinction, the generation of new species is unlikely because of this.

  17. Entire ecosystems are being destroyed

  18. Wild plants are useful in agriculture because of this.

  19. genetic diversity

  20. This is the definition of biodiversity.

  21. A variety of species in an ecosystem

  22. These are two direct benefits of biodiversity for humans.

  23. Genetic diversity for plants & chemicals for medicine

  24. This plant is used to treat malaria

  25. Quinine (Chinchona)

  26. This is currently being done to save the genetic material of wild crop ancestors

  27. collecting and storing the genetic material of crop ancestors

  28. This is why the destruction of rain forests such a severe threat to biodiversity.

  29. Rainforests contain 70-80% of world’s diversity

  30. This has contributed to low water levels in Mono Lake, CA & in the Aral Sea in Russia?

  31. Water diversion projects

  32. This is how much of the world’s rainforests have been destroyed in the last 150 years.

  33. ½

  34. Name 2 ways that aquatic habitats are being destroyed

  35. Coral reefs dying, overfishing, wetlands being drained

  36. Name 3 ways that humans are destroying ecosystems.

  37. Deforestation, overgrazing, mining, changing course of rivers, alien species

  38. This is when the Endangered Species Act was passed.

  39. 1973

  40. The Endangered Species Act not only protects the species, but also this.

  41. The species’ habitat

  42. This is one of the flaws of the Endangered Species Act.

  43. It is hard to get species on the list

  44. A successful reintroduction of native species is not always successful because of this.

  45. Too much competition with alien species; disease

  46. This was the first animal to be put on endangered species list because of global warming.

  47. Polar bears

  48. This plant is used to treat heart disease.
