Volcanic eruptions effect biodiversity because when the volcano erupts, not only does it destroy habitats, but it also kills off some animals due to the high temperatures of lava. If the organisms do not have a habitat to live in, then they will not be able to survive. Also, in the volcanic eruption it also destroys plants and producers. Without producers, consumers can't get their proper energy to survive. This effects biodiversity because if there is a low population and the ecosystem can not sustain it self then it will have a low biodiversity.
