1 Swift paths to extinction The extinction of a species represents a fundamental and irreversible loss to biological diversity - precluding any further evolutionary change in that species' lineage. It is quite possible for deliberate persecution or exploitation to be the main threat to a species, and a number of large mammals and birds have been exterminated or are endangered in this way. The plight of the world's rhinos is a familiar example, as is the history of whaling. But by far the most serious threat, globally, is the destruction and modification of habitats, mainly by agriculture and settlement.
