summarize the points made in the lecture about solutions to frog population decline, being sure to

explain how they cast doubt on the specific points made in the reading about frog population decline.

The reading states that frog population have declined in number or even gone to extinct due to change in their environment and provides three reasons to solve this problem. However, the professor explains that none of the offering reasons in the passage are practical and refutes each of the author's reasons.

First, the reading states that frogs are being harmed by pesticides, which are chemical used to prevent insects from damaging farm crops. The professor opposes this point by indicating that prohibiting the use of pesticides by farmers are not practical or fair and leads farmer to can't compete in the today's competitive markets. Although banning the pesticides might have benefit for frogs, it causes farmers to experience sever disadvantages in compare to other region's farmers by losing more crops and have a lower yield.

Second, the reading claims that major factor in frog’s population decline is a fungus that has spread around the world with deadly effect. However, the professor contends that recent method that researchers use to treat frogs relate to treatment of each individual frog. Furthermore, this treatment doesn't prevent this disease from passing on to new generation which means researchers should treat each individual frog in new generation either. Therefore, the treatment procedure is a complicated and very expensive approach.

Third, the article avers that in a great many cases, frog populations are in decline simply because their natural habitats are threatened. The lecture refutes this point by mentioning that we can't save frogs by protecting water habitats from excessive water use. Draining of wetlands isn't big threat and the real threat is global warming which in some parts cause species to extinct. Hence, protecting wetlands seems unlikely to prevent from frog’s population decline as there is a threat of global warming.
