APES Topic 9.10: Human Impacts on Biodiversity (College Board; Unit 9-Global Change)
EIN-4 The health of a species is closely tied to its ecosystem, and minor environmental changes can have a large impact.
Learning Objective EIN-4.C
Explain how human activities affect biodiversity and strategies to combat the problem.
EIN-4.C.1: HIPPCO (habitat destruction, invasive species, population growth, pollution, climate change, and over exploitation) describes the main factors leading to a decrease in biodiversity.
EIN-4.C.6: Some ways humans can mitigate the impact of loss of biodiversity include creating protected areas, use of habitat corridors, promoting sustainable land use practices, and restoring lost habitats.
