Question

Unsustainable harvesting of resources and species is ___.
  1. Utilitarianism
  2. Over-exploitation
  3. Alien species invasion
  4. Biodiversity


Solution

The correct option is B Over-exploitation
The Evil Quartet in Ecology causing loss of biodiversity includes habitat loss and fragmentation, over-exploitation, alien species invasion and co-extinction. When species are harvested untenably or when they are over-exploited for human consumption, they cannot be replenished naturally and are lost to extinction. Utilitarianism is a philosophy that values actions that maximise utility.
