?Ecology Problems: The Effect

Ecology problems are being studied by scientists from around the world. The world itself is facing a number of very risky and life sustaining altering changes that could potentially destroy life on the planet. While many scientists believe that changes can still be made to stop the deconstruction and to repair the problems, many others believe some areas are lost. With that loss comes many potential windfalls. For example, in the global ecology, many species have gone extinct long before they were discovered and marveled at. At the same time, many medications and unique plants have been lost because their habitats have been destroyed and with them comes the healing powers that so many people need.

There are ecology problems on a grand scale. In ecology, the study is of animals and plants and the interactions they have with each other and the environment around them. By studying this information, scientists can better understand the roles that each organism and microorganism has on the next. In addition, they can see what problems exist, especially those caused by humans. Anytime humans come into contact with an ecosystem, they leave changes and they disrupt the ecosystem in many ways. In some situations, this is very in depth damage. In others it is minor. Yet, ecology problems happen in most situations.

Two of the largest ecology problems have to do with the global ecology or the way that each of the ecosystems on the planet interact with each other. These problems are ozone depletion and global warming, two very different problems equally troubling.

Global warming is an ecology problem that caused by the buildup of gasses (which hold in heat) in the atmosphere. Global warming is often called a greenhouse effect. In a greenhouse, heat is allowed to come into the greenhouse, to grow the plants, but it is unable to escape again. This is similar to what is happening on a global scale with global warming.

The other large ecology problems center on ozone depletion. This is different than global warming because here you have the actual destruction of the ozone layer. Many chemicals cause this because they interact with the ozone. They in effect leave a hole that lets in UV rays.

These ecology problems are very serious and both are a threat to life on Earth. The more that people study and get to know what is happening, the better decisions they can make for the future. For many people, these seem like problems for someone else to deal with, but in effect, they have a direct effect on you and every person can help.
