In a rural hilly district in Himachal Pradesh, a land developer uses bulldozers to clear all but the largest trees and cleans up a nearby stream, lining the bottom of the stream with pretty rocks and steeping-stones. Planting lawn grasses around the base of the trees, the owner wants to create a pretty park-like setting around his home. We expect that in this cleared yard, there will be: 

(a) more species of invertebrates in the stream and on the land but fewer species of vertebrates and plants everywhere 

(b) more mammal and plant species, but fewer birds and invertebrates on the land and in the stream 

(c) fewer species of vertebrates and plants everywhere but more invertebrates in the steam 

(d) fewer species of plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates everywhere
