Abstract

Canada is a country that has a great area and it is the second largest country in the world. Such large areas are characterized not only by diverse climate and vegetation, but also high biodiversity within flora and fauna species. Although Canada's boreal forest is well preserved and not being as destructed as it used to be, the number of inhabitants in Canadian settlements has grown for 1,5 millions in the last few years, so the infrastructure is spreading and the taiga is being threatened. In this work I will explain how climate change, the sprawl of urban places, invazive species and other phenomens mostly caused by human species effect the overall life of Canadian plants and animals. I will also study the today's condition of biodiversity in Canada and what are some steps that should be done to keep the most sensitive ecosystems, but as well other ecosystems in Canada preserved for the future generations.
