Biotic Homogenization by Julie L. Lockwood,Michael L. McKinney

By Julie L. Lockwood,Michael L. McKinney

organic homogenization is the dominant strategy shaping the destiny international biosphere. As worldwide transportation turns into speedier and extra widespread, it really is inevitable that biotic intermixing increases. distinctive neighborhood biotas turns into extinct basically to get replaced via already frequent biotas that may tolerate human actions. This approach is affecting all points of our global: language, economies, and ecosystems alike. the final word consequence is the lack of forte and the expansion of uniformity. during this method, speedy foodstuff eating places exist in Moscow and Java Sparrows breed on Hawaii.
organic homogenization qualifies as a world environmental disaster. The Earth hasn't ever witnessed this kind of extensive and entire reorganization of species distributions.
