Unprecedented Anthropogenic Activities Disturb Biodiversity
With unprecedented urbanization, abrupt changes in the land system and the overall ecosystem has been on a significant rise.Consequently, the flora & fauna and species are being affected.
It is now been reported by reputed research agencies, that the habitat of species is now being shifted as their current habitat has no more the ambience which is crucial for their survival. This pattern has a direct relationship with change in climate.
Development of a framework to assess the sustanibility of a region in context of biodiversity
The leads research group is studying the link of climate change and biodiversity in hyperlocal scenario besides assessing the global impact.
The research unit has been working on developing a framework where various aspects of biodiversity are included. This way we can help in generating a dynamic scenario for assessing the sustainability of a region in context of biodiversity stability.
Regions stable in the context of biodiversity become an automatic choice for various activities and for residing as well.
This score can be used by government organisations, research agencies, NGOs and individuals as well.
This is necessary to understand that there is a direct relationship between environmental sustainability and biodiversity. Loss of biodiversity is generally characterized by fragmentation and land disturbances. However, it is necessary to understand that increase in pressure on natural resources is now inevitable due to unprecedented increase in population. Therefore, there is a requirement of effective measures for controlling random development. Otherwise, idea of environmental sustainability would be under threat. Hence, biodiversity analysis using advance frameworks is now
an absolute necessity.
According to a report of World Wildlife Fund Living Planet, half of the biodiversity is lost since 1970. Several factors may have been responsible for the unprecedented loss in biodiversity. But, the most important factor is human intervention. There has been significant impact on biodiversity due to human intervention and this trend may further aggravate in near future. In addition, this is also necessary to understand that there is a direct impact of functional activities on biodiversity sustainability. Functional activities have direct impact on climate sustainability. Primarily, functional activities induce changes and transformations in the morphology. Finally, functional activities shape and define structural characteristics of a region. Functional activities have been primarily responsible for climate change phenomenon. And there is direct impact of climate change on biodiversity. Hence, this is necessary to consider that the way functional activities take shape; structural characteristics change and transform. Therefore, studies pertaining to biodiversity analysis should consider applying system science principles.
Implications of biodiversity loss are threatening and can be alarming in the context of climate sustainability. Hence, there is an absolute necessity of focussed studies for deciphering the complexities of biodiversity analysis and sustainability. Moreover, this is required to be understood that there is adverse impact on ecosystem services due to loss in biodiversity. In addition, this is also necessary to understand that there should be robust and consistent frameworks for biodiversity analysis and investigations. Furthermore, the frameworks should be capable of construing the impact of climate change on biodiversity.
