The other day I read in a magazine that there are thousands of different species of animals, fishes, insects and plants in the world. Many plants for instance that we refer to with one name; like mushrooms, have in fact many numerous species of the same plant.
Apparently, new species are being discover all the time. And many are also dying out or becoming extinct.
This set me thinking. How are we, humans, being affected when a certain species becomes extinct, and is no longer there?
