Collapse of herbivore and carnivore populations

2 posts in this topic

I was looking through the research/scientific papers forum and I didn't see either of these review articles posted. If someone did post them already and I missed it, my apologies. The articles paint an unsurprising, but nonetheless frightening, portrait of the loss of the world's largest herbivore and carnivore populations, and the ecological ramifications thereof.

 

Herbivores: http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/1/4/e1400103.full

Carnivores: http://science.sciencemag.org/content/343/6167/1241484.long

 

The herbivore article is open access, so anyone should be able to read it. The carnivore article is not, but I think if you google the title you will find that someone (not me) posted a PDF version online.

Thank you for posting these, bringing them to our attention.

I hadn't seen them, so it's valuable to have them posted here.

The possible long-term ecological consequences are grave.
