Causes of threatening
  • ·       Genetic variation and genetic drift
  • ·       Natural selection
  • ·       Loss of genetic variation
  • ·       Inbreeding depression
  • ·       Loss of evolutionary flexibility
  • ·       Out-breeding depression
  • ·       Ineffective population size
  • ·       Variation in reproductive output
  • ·       Unequal sex

  • Some facet about the Biodiversity in Pakistan
  •     Among cranes one couple is for the life long, if one die the other will not mate from other couple and will stay without mating for the lifelong.
  •    There are 6 zoogeographical regions in the world and Pakistan has the 3 of the zoogeographical region.

The causes of the loss of biodiversity in Pakistan
  • High rate of human population
  • Low literacy rate
  • Ignorance of the masses
  • Speedy urbanization
  • Industrialization
  • Deforestation

  1. Efforts done by SUSG for conservation of Afghani Urial and Sueliman Markhur is incredible and marvellous. The number of the above threatened animals is manifold now.
