Transcript of Biosphere and biodiversity

Biosphere and biodiversity
Starter
Where is this animal from and why is it unusual?
The .....spheres!
Lithosphere = the hard, outer surface of the earth
Biosphere = All of the living things (flora and fauna) on the earth.
Atmosphere = Gaseous environment adjacent to the lithosphere
Geosphere = Lithosphere + atmosphere + biosphere
Aim
To know the nature of the Lithosphere, Geosphere and Biosphere
To know the nature of biodiversity
To know the effect of human activity on biodiversity
To answer related questions
In addition
It is only now that we are beginning to realise the potential medicines and crops that we can obtain from a wide range of different organisms. Only by maintaining biodiversity can we be sure that these benefits will be available for future generations.
Biodiversity
Biodiversity means having as wide a range of different species as possible. Maintaining biodiversity is an important part of using the environment in a sustainable way. Indiscriminate use of the environment, for example cutting down large areas of the rain forest to grow crops such as soya, results in a large number of species becoming extinct and reduces biodiversity.
Now...
Write about the influence of :
1. Monoculture
2. Packaging
3. Biodegradability
4. Greenhouse gases

on biodiversity
Oh no!
For every POUND of beef made it is estimated that over 200 square feet of rainforest is destroyed
