Biological annihilation via the ongoing sixth mass extinction signaled by vertebrate population loss
Updated: Mar 2, 2020
"Using a sample of 27,600 terrestrial vertebrate species, and a more detailed analysis of 177 mammal species, we show the extremely high degree of population decay in vertebrates, even in common “species of low concern.” Dwindling population sizes and range shrinkages amount to a massive anthropogenic erosion of biodiversity and of the ecosystem services essential to civilization. This “biological annihilation” underlines the seriousness for humanity of Earth’s ongoing sixth mass extinction event."
Concerning to say the least.
This is even more wild... Not a joke.
