    Reduction of / in population

    Reduction of/ in population of mice can lead to the death of wovles, since there is not enough food to feed on.


    Thank you so much for your response.

    A reduction in the mouse population can lead to the death of wolves as there won't be enough food for the wolves.

    Re: Reduction of / in population

    I have a feeling that "reduction of" is more pro-active (it was done by an external force) and "reduction in" is more passive (it happened naturally on its own).

    NOT A TEACHER, PROBABLY NEVER WILL BE.
