Extinction an ecological shrinkage

In field of ecology and biology the term extinction refers to an end of an individual who was the last of the existing species from the world’s page generally it points out a group or a species. Extinction is a natural phenomenon on an average five to six species were extinct per year which is a natural background rate but due to human influence the rate is unevenly high ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 species per year. It is a critical point where the extinction must be lowered down to maintain the balance. There are many drivers to drive down the extinction like over exploitation, habitat loss, pollution, climate change and introduction of exotic species also, factors like competition, pathogens, predation/herbivory etc also leads the gateway to the extinction of a species.
