The history of life on Earth has been marked five times by mass extinctions of biodiversity due to extreme natural events. Today, many experts warn that a sixth extinction crisis is underway.

the study published A recent Biological Review by University of Hawaii scientists reported that extinction is a recent period, rather than an extreme natural event. due to human activities,

Study lead author Robert Covey said, “Species extinction rates have increased dramatically and many animal and plant populations have decreased, but some deny that these events were the cause of mass extinctions.” represent.”

According to him, the “denial” approach is based on a biased understanding of the crisis, which focuses on mammals and birds, and ignores invertebrates, which apparently constitute the vast majority of biodiversity,
So far Determine the estimates obtained for the snail and the land slug, the study authors speculated, that, in the early 1500s, may have been lost among Earth’s 7.5 and 13% of two million of known species, a number that reaches impressive 150,000 to 260,000 species,

“The inclusion of invertebrates was instrumental in confirming that we are indeed witnessing the beginning of the sixth mass extinction in Earth’s history,” Covey said.

New study suggests that some people deny That the Sixth Extinction has begun. Furthermore, others accept it as a new and natural evolutionary trajectory, as humans are just another species to play their natural role in Earth’s history.

“To deny a crisis, to accept it without response, or to encourage it, is an abrogation of the common responsibility of humanity and Opens the way for the earth to continue on its tragic trajectory towards the sixth mass extinction”, remarked the researcher.
