  • Abstract:

    ‘Biodiversity is the diversity of life on earth, on which we depend for our survival. The variability of and within species and ecosystems helps provide some of our basic shelter, and medicine, as well as recreational, cultural, spiritual and aesthetic needs. Diverse ecosystems create the air we breathe, enrich the soil we till and purify the water we drink. Ecosystems regulate local and global climate. No one can seriously argue that biodiversity is not valuable. Nor can anyone seriously argue that biodiversity is not at risk.’
