This study examined the effect of varying the initial value of industrialization for a fixed length of growing season on the prediction of biodiversity loss. We have found that when the initial value of industrialization is 0.1 under a shorter length of growing season, a relative low due of biodiversity loss can be maintained. The biodiversity loss value can be further lowered by maintaining the same length of growing season but with a reduced initial value of industrialization to 0.01 or 0.02. We would expect this alternative result to provide a further insight into our fight against biodiversity loss which has both human and sustainable development devastating effects.
