Mass Poisoners

The Borgias entertained themselves by poisoning each other. Today’s princes of industry poison on a far grander scale, on the grounds it would cost them too much not to.

For Lack of a Predator

A species may eat a particular bacterium, phytoplankton, smaller fish, or plant in an area. Lacking a predator, these species/populations will overgrow and alter the area’s biology, overwhelming and driving to extinction dozens or hundreds or thousands of other local species.

~ Thom Hartmann (born: 1951-05-07 age: 63)   Threshold: The Progressive Plan to Pull America Back from the Brink page 24

The more species, the greater the biodiversity, the more stable an ecosystem is. When you start killing off half the species, the ecosystem becomes much more fragile, and more susceptible to complete collapse from even minor disturbances.
