  • Pollution:
    • Acid rain impacts natural communities
    • Humans poison water with toxic materials

  • Fragmentation can lead to more recessive lethal alleles
    • pollinator populations declined and reproductive success lowered


  • Corridors connect gene pools
    • increases plant biodiversity
