Diversity

 

Diversity Endangered is a natural history exhibit created by the Smithsonian Institute with a grant from the National Science Foundation. Every time a highway is constructed, a river dammed, a streambed diverted, or a forest cleared, the natural habitat of plants and animals is lost. In many cases, habitat is not destroyed entirely but what does vanish is the unseen diversity that depends on complex interactions between all of an environment’s elements.
