Biological Diversity or Biodiversity is the variety of the earths living organisms, the genes they contain and the ecosystems they compose. This includes the different species of plants, animals and microorganisms that make up an ecosystem. Biodiversity is a key element in the earth's biosphere- the capability of earth and its atmosphere to support life- due to the earth's dependency on the maintenance of biodiversity and other non-living objects. This is why the preservation and knowing the threats to biodiversity is highly recommended, as we ourselves depend so heavily on biodiversity and can help maintain it for future generations. Although, before knowing the threats we must first identify the different aspects of biodiversity.Biodiversity is the variety of life. It can be studied on many levels.
