Natural enemies, including humans, play a major role in the diversification of species and the maintenance of biodiversity. Compared with humans, most enemies faced by the rest of biodiversity are restricted in the magnitude of their effects, the spatial extent of their distribution, and the variety of species that they influence. Recognition of the similarities and differences between natural and human enemies should help us preserve and manage biodiversity.

Les ennemis naturels, y compris les humains, jouent un rôle majeur dans la diversification des espèces et le maintien de la biodiversité. Par comparaison aux humains, la plupart des ennemis auxquels fait face le reste de la biodiversité sont limités dans l'importance de leurs effets, l'étendue spatiale de leur répartition et la gamme des espèces qu'ils influencent. L'identification des ressemblances et des différences entre les ennemis naturels et les ennemis humains devrait aider à conserver et à gérer la biodiversité.[Traduit par la Rédaction]
