Expert Answer

When a species becomes extinct, the plant and animal species associated with it in an obligatory may also become extinct. This is called co-extinction. For example, when a host fish species becomes extinct, its unique assemblage of parasites also becomes extinct.

Three other causes are-

(a) Habitat loss and fragmentation

(b) Over-exploitation

(c) Alien species invasion
