Changes in biodiversity
By the year 2000, about 73% of the original global biodiversity on land was left. The largest declines have occurred in the temperate and tropical grasslands and forests, the biomes where human civilizations developed first. There is a projected further biodiversity loss on land of about 11% worldwide between 2000 and 2050. The global annual rate of loss increased dramatically in the twentieth century, especially in Europe, in comparison to previous centuries. The expected loss rate for Europe seems to decrease but does not halt, while the global average still increases.
