The author of the reading believes that the bird population in the USA will decline in the future and provide three factors of this problem. The lecturer casts doubt on the claims made in the article. He thinks that the support of the claims are not enough accurate to conclude that bird spices will continue to decline.
First of all, the author points out that because of human population increase there are fewer habitats available for birds as many forests and lands are now used to build new settlements. This point is challenged by the lecturer. He states that the growth of cities actually increased the number of some bird spices as now they live there.
Secondly, the reading contends that as more and more land is used for agriculture purposes the less natural habitats remain for birds. The professor rebuts this comment by saying that the number of agricultural lands is actually decreasing annually in the USA, so, fortunately, there is no need to destroy birds natural habitats.
Finally, the author states that the chemical pesticides used in agriculture will lead to the death of many birds as they eat the poison crops. The lecturer, on the other hand, states that new less harmful pesticides are being developed. He also adds that more pest-resistance crops are presented, so the demand for pesticides will fall. With this being said the professor effectively casts doubt that birds population will decline.
