Why was constantinople an important city?

  It is an important trade center due to its location. Ever since the days of human expansion from Southwest Asia to Europe, people needed a way to cross the Bosporus strait that separates Anatolia from the Balkan Peninsula. The Bosporus is also the only water passage between the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Whoever controlled this location controlled (and profited from) both land and water transportation in the area. Silk Road trade brought east and west together at Constantinople, and the Crusades exposed otherwise European-minded soldiers to the world beyond their own continent, further increasing the city's importance. Renaissance innovations made ocean travel possible, allowing western European countries to navigate around Africa on their way to Asia, bypassing the "choke point" at Constantinople and reducing its importance as THE global center of trade. However, it still remains a cultural and economic crossroads between East and West. Because it gave the Ottomans access to other trade routes.

The President of the United States has just appointed you, a conservation Biologist, to work on a nation-wide plan to limit biodiversity loss. In this plan, you need to first explain why biodiversity is so important & then give at least 3 plausible strategies to aid in conservation, including explanations as to how they would be enforced.

Bio-diversity is very important because it maintains the abiotic and biotic relationships within a given ecosystem. Aside from this, it allows for the development and the continuity of the species' evolution. Three plausible strategies to aid in conservation are:

a. Strengthen the laws and regulations that are about conserving wildlife and preserving the environment (i.e. minimizing gas emissions, building sustainable energy)

b. Build conservation centers that would hold wild life and diverse organisms that can be saved or placed under strict observations so that they can reproduce more viable offsprings.

c. The government should allot a separate budget that is big enough to help conservation efforts of scientists working in the field.
