Bumping up this post.

I would like to know whether following part: "...threat, after loss of habitat, to ...." is absolute or is equivocal.

Will give kudos to one who will dissect the construction in A.

A. threat, after habitat loss, to native species of plants and animals and to the
maintenance of biologically diverse ecosystems
B. threat, after habitat loss, to native species of plants and animals and for
maintaining biologically diverse ecosystems
C. threat, after losing their habitat, to native species of plants and animals and
also to maintenance of biologically diverse ecosystems
D. threat to native species of plants and animals and for maintaining biologically
diverse ecosystems, after habitat loss
E. threat to native species of plants and animals as well as to maintaining
biologically diverse ecosystems, after losing their habitat

Meaning
Some botanists believe invasive plants are second most serious threat to native species of plants and animals and also to the biologically diverse eco-system.
Habitat loss is the topmost threat( according to the botanists who believe invasive plants are second most serious threat)

Error Analysis

According to some botanists
invasive plants are the second most serious threat" S- Invasive plants verb- "are.."
-after habitat loss,--prepositional phrase,
to "native species....." and to"maintain biologically....".........To X and To Y. Parallel

No Error

POE
A. threat, after habitat loss, to native species of plants and animals and to the
maintenance of biologically diverse ecosystems- Correct Choice
B. threat, after habitat loss, to native species of plants and animals and for
maintaining biologically diverse ecosystems- To"X" and For"Y" not parallel
C. threat, after losing their habitat, to native species of plants and animals and
also to maintenance of biologically diverse ecosystems-To "X" and "Also to Y" not parallel
D. threat to native species of plants and animals and for maintaining biologically
diverse ecosystems, after habitat loss- Same error as B
E. threat to native species of plants and animals as well as to maintaining
biologically diverse ecosystems, after losing their habitat- To "X" and As well as"Y" Not parallel.
