Biodiversity is important to humans for many reasons. Ecological life support— biodiversity provides functioning ecosystems that supply oxygen, clean air and water, pollination of plants, pest control, wastewater treatment and many ecosystem services.
It is necessary to classify organisms because: It helps in the identification of living organisms as well as in understanding the diversity of living organisms. Classification helps us to learn about different kinds of plants and animals, their features, similarities and differences.
There are as many distinct types of organisms as there are distinct niches available to exploit. Each species is the best one available for exploiting its niche. Each niche is a way of getting an edge, of making a living and it is sort of surprising that there should be so many ways of doing it, but there it is.
Explanation: living organisms need water to survive. all oxygen-dependent organisms need water to aid in the respiration process; some organisms, such as fish, cannot breathe outside its presence, while other organisms need water to help break down food molecules or generate energy during the respiration process.
The natural world contains about 8.7 million species, according to a new estimate described by scientists as the most accurate ever. But the vast majority have not been identified – and cataloguing them all could take more than 1,000 years.
There are now 41,415 species on the IUCN Red List, and 16,306 of them are endangered species threatened with extinction. This is up from 16,118 last year. This includes both endangered animals and endangered plants.
Each year, approximately 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed every year because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes.
Slaughter: ‘They Die Piece by Piece’ After they are unloaded, cows are forced through a chute and shot in the head with a captive-bolt gun meant to stun them. But because the lines move so quickly and many workers are poorly trained, the technique often fails to render the animals insensible to pain.
Do pigs cry when slaughtered? Pigs are sensitive animals, and when they are sad or upset, they cry and produce real tears. When slaughtered, pigs feel distressed; they squeal and cry in pain.
“I’ve seen cows nuzzle their calves to death, and continue butting them after they are dead, then forget them not two days later. It’s sad but it’s true. They just don’t seem to understand,” Mr Epperly said. This is not to say they do not have fears though, he said.
