Plant diversity in a changing world: Status, trends, and

Feb 01, 2016 1. Introduction. The conservation of plant diversity has received considerably less attention than the conservation of animals, perhaps because plants lack the popular appeal of many animal groups (Goettsch et al., 2015).As a result, plant conservation is greatly under-resourced in comparison with animal conservation (Havens et al., 2014).Yet plants are much more important to us.

Environmental impact of mining Wikipedia

Environmental impacts of mining can occur at local, regional, and global scales through direct and indirect mining practices. Impacts can result in erosion, sinkholes, loss of biodiversity, or the contamination of soil, groundwater, and surface water by the chemicals emitted from mining processes. These processes also have an impact on the atmosphere from the emissions of carbon which have
