Fear of extinction of species from tropical forests is


2-5 species/hr


2-5 species/day


2-5 species/week


2-5 species/month


When there are no more individuals of a species (plant or animal) alive anywhere in the world, the species is said to be extinct. Extinction is also known as the process of dying out. The process is a completely natural part of evolution. But sometimes extinctions happen at a higher and a faster rate than usual. Factors such as large body size, small population, and position at a higher trophic level favour extinction. Fear of extinction of species from tropical forests is at the rate of 2-5 species/hr.
So, the correct answer is '2-5 species/hr'.
