Changes in plant communities can, for example, be a reflection of increased levels of pollution, a response to long-term climate. The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is the largest animal that has ever lived, weighing up to at least tonnes and measuring up to metres ( ft) long.

The largest extant terrestrial animal is the African bush elephant (Loxodonta africana), weighing up to tonnes and measuring up to metres ( ft) long.(unranked): Unikonta. Introduction. The conservation of plant diversity has received considerably less attention than the conservation of animals, perhaps because plants lack the popular appeal of many animal groups (Goettsch et al., ).As a result, plant conservation is greatly under-resourced in comparison with animal conservation (Havens et al., ).Yet plants are much more Cited by: Biodiversity and Plant-Animal Coevolution Darwin’s orchid book (Darwin, ): The more we study in detail the methods of plant dispersion, the more of ecosystems for the maintenance of animal diversity through their keystone influence on life histories and annual Size: 3MB.
