Biodiversity - or bioligical diversity - is the term given to describe the variety of all life on earth. The biological diversity we see today is the result of millions of years of evolution. It includes habitats and ecosystems which support this life and how life forms interact with each other and the rest of the environment. It includes wildlife, plants, domesticated crops and animals. Biodiversity provides humans with food and fresh water, fuel, building materials and even the resources used to develop most modern prescription drugs. For this reason, biodiversity can be considered as the very raw material which sustains life on earth.
All living things, including humans, do not live in isolation. We are all linked in what is known as the 'web of life'. This 'web of life' is often very complex, but it is possible to identify different groups of animals or pants that have something in common and can be associated together into groups know as 'ecological communities' or 'ecosystems'. How your community lives and develops in the future will impact on the natural environment and all living things around it. We as human beings are an integral part of biodiversity and we can influence it in a positive or negative way. Description taken from Notice Nature
