Furthermore, nature reserves have maintained this species population in the nature reserve and surrounding area, even though there has occurred a dramatic decrease in the population throughout Northeast China from the 1970s to 1990s.
The system proposed here consists of 4 interacting subsystems within a specified spatial domain, namely the pest species population dynamics, the sugarcane dynamics, the environmental dynamics and the economics subsystems, as illustrated in Fig.

For protecting endangered species there are four main areas of capacity and expertise required, namely the ability to manage the endangered species and species population, secondly the ability to provide and maintain habitat in which species populations can recover and expand, thirdly the ability to protect the species from illegal use and to enforce national and international agreements designed to protect the species and lastly the ability to raise strong public awareness and support for the conservation of the species.
Dr Michael Bank, from the Harvard School of Public Health, said: "Methylmercury has no benefit to animal life and we are starting to find high levels in endangered and sensitive species across marine, freshwater, and terrestrial ecosystems, indicating that mercury pollution and its subsequent chemical reactions in the environment may be important factors in species population declines.
This suggests that hunting has been underestimated as a key causal factor of orangutan density and distribution, and that species population declines have been more severe than previously estimated based on habitat loss only.
2) There is a risk of escapes, and escapees compete with native species for spawning grounds and food, potentially weakening the native species population.
224) The benefits to both processes would correspond because, like the determinations, they both tend to concentrate on species population abundance and trends.
Further, much is still unknown about migratory bird flyways and overall species population levels, making it difficult to determine the cumulative impact that the wind power industry has on wildlife species.
