Congratulations! You have been hired by the largest natural history museum in the world (Miller, 2005). Your first responsibility will be to design an exhibit that emphasizes the importance of biodiversity. The exhibit should focus on the region you have chosen for your final project, which is the Tropical rainforest of Brazil, and should introduce visitors to the causes of wildlife extinction as well as demonstrate ways wildlife extinction impacts our world. When outlining the causes, be sure to show the relationship between deforestation and wildlife extinction in this region and others. In the deforestation segment of your exhibit, you should show estimations of the current and potential impact of deforestation on world cultures. Finally, take the visitors from the land to the aquatic life zones. Describe methods that could be (or already are being) implemented to preserve the present level of aquatic biodiversity. Organize your proposed design in a presentation that you will submit to the museum's board of trustees. Your presentation should consist of 10 to 15 PowerPoint® slides with detailed speaker's notes. Citations of original works within the presentation must follow APA guidelines.

Solution Summary

Ecosystem diversity means the variety and frequency of different ecosystems, species diversity the frequency and diversity of different species, and genetic diversity the frequency and diversity of different genes and/or genomes. Genetic diversity provides a raw material for evolutionary forces for speciation. Biodiversity is useful in modern agriculture as a source of material for breeding new improved varieties, development of new crops. Loss of biodiversity leads to extinction of species.
