Anthropogenic, ecological and genetic factors in extinction and conservation

  title={Anthropogenic, ecological and genetic factors in extinction and conservation},
  author={Russell Lande},
  journal={Researches on Population Ecology},
Anthropogenic factors constitute the primary deterministic causes of species declines, endangerment and extinction: land development, overexploitation, species translocations and introductions, and pollution. The primary anthropogenic factors produce ecological and genetic effects contributing to extinction risk. Ecological factors include environmental stochasticity, random catastrophes, and metapopulation dynamics (local extinction and colonization) that are intensified by habitat destruction… CONTINUE READING
