Biodiversity crisis
Studies say birds with distinctive features at higher risk of extinction

Tropical and sub-tropical regions are most prone to lose species due to climate change with many going extinct while others shift their range. The remaining species will be alike in their traits

30% of Species threatened or extinct globally since 1500

A study from Minnesota University has shown that global biodiversity loss may be greater than thought previously. This will also adversely affect the functioning of ecosystems

44% of Earth’s land requires conservation for protection of biodiversity and ecosystem, say scientists

The study is vitally important as governments around the world begin to set their goals and targets for biodiversity conservation, which experts think would form the agenda for the next decade
