Forests provide habitats for 80 percent of amphibian species, 75 percent of bird species and 68 percent of mammal species.
Global State of Biodiversity and Loss
Biodiversity loss includes the extinction of species plant or animal worldwide, as well as the local reduction or loss of species in a certain habitat , resulting in a loss of biological diversity. Global extinction has so far been proven to be irreversible. Even though permanent global species loss is a more dramatic and tragic phenomenon than regional changes in species composition , even minor changes from a healthy stable state can have dramatic influence on the food web and the food chain insofar as reductions in only one species can adversely affect the entire chain coextinction , leading to an overall reduction in biodiversity , possible alternative stable states of an ecosystem notwithstanding. Ecological effects of biodiversity are usually counteracted by its loss. Reduced biodiversity in particular leads to reduced ecosystem services and eventually poses an immediate danger for food security , also for humankind. You know, when we first set up WWF, our objective was to save endangered species from extinction.

Baird, Jr. B iological diversity must be treated more seriously as a global resource, to be indexed, used, and above all, preserved. Three circumstances conspire to give this matter an unprecedented urgency. First, exploding human populations are degrading the environment at an accelerating rate, especially in tropical countries.

A summary for policymakers was released on 6 May On 6 May , the page summary was released. The Global Assessment Report is a global-level assessment of changes in Earth's biodiversity that have occurred over the past 50 years. It draws an extensive picture of economic development and its effects on nature in that period. The Report is a collaborative effort by authors from 50 countries,  produced over a three-year period and supported by some authors' contributions. The Report examined the rate of decline in biodiversity and found that the adverse effects of human activities on the world's species is "unprecedented in human history":  one million species, including 40 percent of amphibians , almost a third of reef -building corals , more than a third of marine mammals , and 10 percent of all insects are threatened with extinction.
Biodiversity loss , also called loss of biodiversity , a decrease in biodiversity within a species , an ecosystem , a given geographic area, or Earth as a whole. Biodiversity , or biological diversity , is a term that refers to the number of genes , species, individual organisms within a given species, and biological communities within a defined geographic area, ranging from the smallest ecosystem to the global biosphere. A biological community is an interacting group of various species in a common location. Likewise, biodiversity loss describes the decline in the number, genetic variability, and variety of species, and the biological communities in a given area. This loss in the variety of life can lead to a breakdown in the functioning of the ecosystem where decline has happened.
