Both the reading and listening parts offer two opposite viewpoints about the methods for saving the endanger Torreya trees. While the passage lists three solutions to prevent the possible extinction, the lecturer considers them as unsatisfactory.
First of all, the text posits that the reestablishing the Torreya in the same location, in which is wet and cool and Torreya survived for thousands of years, can be an effective option to prevent the extinction. However, the instructor casts doubt on the validity of this plan. As she explains, there is striking alteration in the ecological condition of this place, it is neither wet nor cool. There is the possibility that based on global warming and drained wetland this specific spot gets warmer and drier. Consequently, this place does not provide that suitable location for Torreya to survive.
Secondly, the article motions to the complete alteration of location and moving Torreya to further north to help it to survive; on the contrary, the professor refutes this idea too. As she asserts the same plan is implemented in another case, and that endangered species in its new territory grow in the high and invasive way that killed other native animals and plants of that region and put them in the risk of extinction. Thus, this transportation can lead to other unpredictable outcomes.
Finally, meanwhile, the passage purposes the preserving the Torreya in research centers to monitor them easily, the professor rejects this proposal too. As she describes, the preserved species in the research centers are not resistance in illness. The main factor for persisting the disease is the genetical diversity; on the other hand since the research center does not possess the high compacity to cover the entire diversities, the trees kept in the research centers are in danger of disease. So, the purpose of keeping trees in the research center cannot protect them too.
