Nasty--I hope we can learn something here that will help to protect humans too!!
I am not sure of the many factors that trigger evolution but I think we are entering a stage of change that may create opprotunities for some and extinction for others. I believe this on the human scale, what with all the pollution and factors like stress that affect us, but also for the other critters and plants. I think we have stretched the limits of habitat and genetic diversity for so many species that their chances of survival are getting slimmer each and every day.....our attempts to save them at this point are almost absurd but I guess we have to try. The flip side of this is that we should probably put more value on letting nature sort it out for them....and treat what survives with more respect and serious conservative effort, if it is not already too late. We have and still continue to waste/consume so much in our greedy pursuit for comfort and wealth....it is all at a very great cost.
