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.
Both the reading paddage and the lecture talk about how to halt the frogs' extinction or their population decline. The author give three solution in order to preserve frog's population. The lecturer casts doubt on them and believes that none of them is practical.
First, the writer asserts that frogs are being harm by pesticides, used in farms to protect crops from insects damaging. In continue, due to protecting frogs life, the author mention that these chemical material should be ban to exert. On the other hand, the profosser believes that this solution is not economically. She says that its not fair for farmers who live in the farm habitat to don't use pesticides because they can't compete with other farmers.
Second, the reading proposes that some special treatment should exert to kill the fungus because fungus is a harmful creator for frogs. In regard this, the author says that this treatment should be applied in large scale. But, the lecturer mentions some difficulties in this solution. She thinks that its very complicated and expensive to apply the treatment to all indiviual frog. Besides, this treatment should be applied in each new generation of frogs.
Finally, the writer declares that lakes and marshes should be protected from hamuns activities like excessive water use, because they will damage by the human activity. But, the professor believes that lakes and marshes are damaged by global warming and by controling humans activities will not serve the purpose of protecting frogs inhabitat.
