In this modules discussion, we will learn about the economic and ecological impact of habitat loss on the island country of Micronesia. The Federated States of Micronesia is a country spread across the western Pacific Ocean comprising over 600 islands. Micronesia is made up of 4 island states: Pohnpei, Kosrae, Chuuk and Yap. Watch the following video link about climate changes in Micronesia: https://www.pbslearningmedia.org/asset/prcc12_vid_mctprob1/ As you watch the video, focus on how life has changed for the islanders and the land itself. What are some specific examples from the video that suggest ecosystems and the islanders way of life are changing? What is a biodiversity hotspot? How does Micronesia meet the criteria for a biodiversity hotspot? What are some of the causes for the loss of biodiversity in Micronesia? Describe at least one of the native species (either plant or animal) that is under threat due to habitat loss or degradation.
