Extinction is the biological term which stands for the death of the last individual of the species. The reasons for species extinction and for the quick change in the environment are the main focus of many scientific research projects of the modern times.

What makes individual species susceptible lo extinction? It depends on at least two factors: the biological group to which a species belongs, and the rate of environmental change. Evidence shows that mammals and birds become more easily extinct than do mollusks or insects.

Studies of the extinction of the dinosaurs provide evidence that changing conditions affect different animals in different ways. While some may be dramatically affected; others stay relatively untouched. The best way to answer the question of what causes extinction is to combine different approaches to research and lo consider versatile viewpoints. Scientists can even use mathematical formulas to predict whether a population of certain species is likely to adapt itself to the changing environment and thus survive or disappear altogether.

Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is the only world’s country that covers an entire continent thus being the sixth largest county on Earth. Australia is very diverse; its size gives a rich variety in landscapes: rainforests, mountain ranges, deserts, coral reefs, sandy beaches. The first people to live on its territory were aborigines who can still be encountered nowadays. Some live on reservations, some on ranches or even in cities.

Australians live along the coastline and mostly inhabit cities. Australian cities arc multicultural melting-pot megapolises. Sydney is a glamorous collusion of beaches, luxurious boutiques and night bars. Melbourne is all arts, alleyways and Australian Rules football. Brisbane is a subtropical town on the way up; Adelaide prides itself for festive grace and pubby poise. Boomtown Perth breathes west-coast optimism and Canberra transcends political agendas.

Being a developed country and one of the wealthiest across the globe, Australia ranks highly in such issues as quality of life, welfare and protection of human rights.
