    Scientists in New Zealand offer a theory that links bird extinction to plant extinction

    Scientists say they have found a link between bird extinction and the decline of plantlife. Scientists in New Zealand have linked the decline of common forest shrub with the extinction of two species of local birds over 100 years ago. This study is claimed to offer proof of a breakdown in local ecosystems linked to birds. The two species of birds studied were pollinating birds – and their extinction has led to a dearth of local plantlife. However, the extinction of the plant has taken around 140 years, leading to a theory of “delayed extinction.”
