This article is perhaps the least related to ecosystems and biomes out of the four articles listed. It speaks about preserving the integrity and character of the town, but other than offhandedly mentioning that it was a very wet climate, I don'nt see much of a connection between this article and human impact upon biomes. I can see however that population growth is definitely a factor and that it will impact local biomes and ecosystems. The article doesn't specify how and it's so vague that I honestly have trouble seeing how it links to biomes or human impact on them. It's not a pertinent or relevant article in my opinion. It does speak about infrastructure expansion but only as it pertains to the town's culture, not the environmental impact. I would say this article isn't good enough to include here, but this is the material I was provided.

Marine debris litters Cape York's remote beaches

Marine debris litters Cape York's remote beaches

This article is a succinct and factual account of how pollution is affecting the local ecosystem. It speaks of how plastic pollution is affecting the wildlife, the impact on the marine biome, the severity of the issue. It provides a few highly reliable facts, but doesn't really go into detail or speculate. It's more of an update on pollution and a few statistics than anything else.

Rainforest Rescue - Threats to Daintree Lowland Rainforest

Rainforest Rescue - Threats to Daintree Lowland Rainforest

This article is a professional, clean and organised repository of information. It comments on the effects of rural development and not only the more obvious consequences such as loss of habitat and extinction, but also more in depth issues such as invasive weeds and foreign flora and fauna disrupting the Daintree's ecology. Feral animals are also an issue that the article has spoken of making note of the fact that they often prey upon native species some of which are already endangered. It also mentions briefly things such as soil erosion, private land ownership, residential development, feral animals preying on native species and invasive flora. It is a professional and well written piece that touches on the more mainstream issues like climate change but also the more esoteric problems like invasive weeds. I'd hope that from the aforementioned commentary on this article that it is clear this article is highly reliable, articulate and useful to any who are researching human impacts on Tropical Rainforests.

Daintree Rainforest

Daintree Rainforest

While this article comments on humanity's impact on the Daintree rain forest, it provides no sources, proof and discusses very few statistics. While the information has been found accurate after verification, it is quite general and not very in depth. The article mentions the land and how it's been repurposed for agricultural uses as well as the effects of tourism and the subsequent rise in pollution. Additionally, the article mentions the clearing of the land for logging and excavation purposes. The article foregoes mentioning population growth and water consumption as well as any recent meteorological or natural disasters. While light on details and evidence it makes a few valid points. I can see that the information may not be completely accurate due to incompetence rather than something born out of malice. The reliability of the information is certainly in question and I would take no more than the broad strokes from the article. It's not particularly useful and there are far better articles out there, depending on the specific information and topic one is seeking.
