please help is it B or C?
INTACT FOREST (NEVER LOGGED) The figure above shows a large forested area that is divided into two sections of equal area. One section was never logged, but the other section has been logged, resulting in 4 forest patches (labeled A-D). Green indicates forest patches and white indicates areas of logging. A small road is cut between the two forests. How will the species richness of forest-dependent species change in the logged patch before and after logging? A) Species richness is the same before the logging as afterwards. O B) Species richness increases after the logging due to the reduction in habitat area. O C) Species richness is reduced after the logging due to an increase in habitat area. OD) Species richness in the fragmented patches will be lower than in the intact forest.
