Ecosystems can be complex and hard to manage. In fact, they can encompass diverse species and habitats. As such, specific planning and prioritization is needed in order to protect them from the different threats that might undermine their existence, but also preserve and enhance the life of species...

Deep ecology is the means of shifting the value of humans to non-human nature. Humans can no longer look at themselves as the sole entity of the ecosystem, but part of a whole that needs each part to successfully work. Fritjof Capra believes that shifting our views from the old world anthropocentric...

Ecosystem Preservation versus Conservation
Earth is composed of many different ecosystems and each one is a "dynamic complex of plant, animal, and micro-organism communities interacting with the non-living environment as a functional unit" (Protecting Threatened Ecosystems, 2004). These ecosystems are...
Explorers travel to these islands to conduct research on the unique ecosystems and habitats found on these islands, however, this same characteristic is attracting tourism in the islands, which is threatening the special ecosystems. Population on the islands has surged, as natives of nearby countries...
The Value of Maintaining Natural Ecosystems: Preservation vs. Conservation
While preservation or conservation may not be at the top of everyone list, it is a political hot topic. Most Americans would probably agree that protecting the environment is, at the very least, worthy. If nothing else, the...
The terms conservation and preservation are often viewed as being two separate and distinct functions. I strongly believe that conservation and preservation should not act singularly but work together in the eventual goal of maintaining an ecosystem. Both may be deemed secondary arguments over maintaining...

natural resources are the basis of production, manufacturing, and waste disposal. Conceivably the reason why economics is central to biodiversity conservation is because unless it makes definite economic and financial sense for people to conserve biodiversity, it is highly unlikely that individuals will...
