Essay topics:

In recent years, many frog species around the world have declined in numbers or even gone extinct due to changes in their environment. These population declines and extinctions have serious consequences for the ecosystems in which frogs live; for example, frogs help play a role in protecting humans by eating disease-carrying insects. Several methods have been proposed to solve the problem of declining frog populations.
First, frogs are being harmed by pesticides, which are chemicals used to prevent insects from damaging farm crops such as corn and sugarcane. Pesticides often spread from farmland into neighboring frog habitats. Once pesticides enter a frog’s body, they attack the nervous system, leading to severe breathing problems. If laws prohibited the farmers from using harmful pesticides near sensitive frog populations, it would significantly reduce the harm pesticides cause to frogs.
A second major factor in frog population decline is a fungus that has spread around the world with deadly effect. The fungus causes thickening of the skin, and since frogs use their skin to absorb water, infected frogs die of dehydration. Recently, researchers have discovered several ways to treat or prevent infection, including antifungal medication and treatments that kill the fungus with heat. Those treatments, if applied on a large scale, would protect sensitive frog populations from infection.
Third, in a great many cases, frog populations are in decline simply because their natural habitats are threatened. Since most frog species lay their eggs in water, they are dependent on water and wetland habitats. Many such habitats are threatened by human activities, including excessive water use or the draining of wetlands to make them suitable for development. If key water habitats such as lakes and marshes were better protected from excessive water use and development, many frog species would
recover.

The article and the lecture both deal with the factors responsible for the declination of frog’s population in the world. Whilst, the author think that pesticides, fungus and reduced wetlands are the 3 specific reasons for this; the lecturer disputes the author’s claim. In the lecturer’s point of view, these reasons do not hold water.
First, the writer claims that the pesticides used to prevent crops from being damaged by insects, is affecting frogs population. Furthermore, it is stated in the article that components of these pesticide enters the frogs body , and affect negatively on their nervous system causing immense breathing difficulties. In contrast, the professor argues
that reducing the use of these pesticides would affect farmer’s economy. Additionally, he also mentions that no or less usage of pesticide would lead to less crops, thus farmers could go in severe loss.
Second, the author claims that overall increased growth of fungus had put frog’s species in danger. Moreover, reading adds that this fungus increases the skin thickening of frogs, which further makes it difficult for frogs to absorb water. As a result, they get dehydrated and die. However, the lecturer challenges this argument by saying
that treating the fungus would be an expensive job. Further, he remarks that applying the antifungal to all frogs is not possible.
Finally, writer asserts that the habitat of frog is in danger because of human activity. Likewise, the lakes and wetlands are being used for human developments. As opposed to this, lecturer highlights that this endangered habitat is a result of global warming and not because of human development.
