Biodiversity Hotspots and Environmental Destruction

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Question 1:
Often times it seems that in order for a human society to advance, it must change or destroy the surrounding environment to a point where it is impossible for other creatures to exist there. Is this really necessary? Do you think that these instances are only temporary and that the impact will ultimately be absorbed or do the changes have effects that may last long past the uses? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? In this discussion you bring an example of one of these conflicts.
Present a current conflict between human needs and habitat protection. Summarize the basis of the conflict, the result of the conflict on the ecosystem and propose a possible solution.
Question 2:
Biodiversity hotspots are almost universally supported by scientists as places deserving immediate and substantial protection. Do you believe hotspots are critical? Are hotspots important to humans in general or just scientists?
Provide an example of a biodiversity hotspot. Exactly what species live there? Offer a summary of both theoretical and practical reasons for protecting or not protecting hotspots.
Each question should be at least 250 words and must substantively integrate the assigned readings from the module with proper APA style formatting// You may use additional sources and materials as long as they are relevant to the discussion and cited properly.
