In the article “Loss of Bees Bad for Plants” by Chris Palmer published from The Scientist. The author writes about the horrible consequences of the loss of bees on the plants and the ecosystem in general. Bees have a “a monogamous relationship between pollinators and plants, ensuring that plants receive pollen from their own species.” (Palmer, 2013).  Therefore, one of the consequences is that because of low pollination, plants can’t reproduce, spread and grow. In addition, this can prevent some of the production of foods such as honey in which it depends on pollination.

In the article “Ecosystems Could Once Bounce Back From Wildfires. Now, They’re being wiped out for good” written by Lakshmi Supriya, the author informs the readers about ecosystems losing their resiliency, meaning they can’t bounce back from disturbances, more precisely, he explains how an ecosystem can be completely ravaged by uncontrollable forest fires without the ability to grow back. He explains that forest fires are a natural and essential way to allow reproduction and new nutrients to grow, therefore new beginnings for the plants and trees.

This article by “the American Institute of Biological Sciences”, talks about how water is becoming a scarce resource. As humans, we use a lot of water, to bathe, wash clothes and dishes, for production of food. Etc. However, even though water is considered to be a renewable resource because of rainfall, our over use of its availability leads to water shortages. This article stresses that the high demand for water can threaten biodiversity as well as basic human needs such as food production and drinking clean water.
