Extinction threshold is a term used in conservation biology to explain the point at which a species, population or metapopulation, experiences an abrupt change in density or number because of an important parameter, such as habitat is at this critical value below which a species, population, or metapopulation, will go extinct, though this may take a long time for species just below the.
