Section 56.1 1. Not only are the species affected, but the ecosystem such as the nutrient cycles are affected as well. Species interaction within a community is depleted if a certain species is lost. 2. Habitat loss: may lead to extinction because species don’t have anywhere to go whenever their habitat is gone; Introduced species: new species will come into the environment and prey/out compete the existing organisms; overharvesting: organisms are harvested faster than they can reproduce or whenever they have a limited habitat, they cannot escape it; global changes: altering nutrient cycles & pollution combined such as acid rain 3. Scenario 1 results in more biodiversity loss because the genes of the Mediteranean population will be lost but in Scenario 2 the genetic diversity will be more passed
