  • Card 8 / 14:
    Describe the mechanisms by which human population growth and resource use causes increased extinction rates.

    Human population growth leads to unsustainable resource use, which causes habitat destruction to build new human settlements, create agricultural fields, and so on. Larger human populations have also led to unsustainable fishing and hunting of wild animal populations. Excessive use of fossil fuels also leads to global warming.
