  1. The variety of life in the world or in a particular habitat or ecosystem


  1. the diversity of plant and animal life in a particular habitat (or in the world as a whole); "a high level of biodiversity is desirable"
  2. Biodiversity is the degree of variation of life forms within a given ecosystem, biome, or on an entire planet. Biodiversity is one measure of the health of biological systems. Life on Earth today consists of many millions of distinct biological species. ...
  3. the diversity (number and variety of species) of plant and animal life within a region
  4. The dictionary defines it as a variety of plants and animals in their native environments/ habitats.  It is used by globalists to promote fear around extinction of species so that they can activate the Endangered Species Act which has yet to have a single success! ...
  5. life in all its forms, essential to maintain functioning ecosystems that provide services essential for human survival and quality of life.
  6. This term refers to a measurement of the number of species in a given area. Sometimes this is a general measurement in terms of all species, whereas other times it is focused on a particular group of organisms, such as plants. ...
  7. This term is normally used to imply that the diversity of plant and animal species should be maintained, and that extinction is undesirable, because you never know when a species might be useful. The idea can be extended beyond its biological reference to human cultures and languages. ...
  8. Refers to the variety and variability among living organisms and the ecological complexes in which they occur. Diversity can be defined as the number of different items and their relative frequencies. ...
  9. a measure of the number and range of species and their relative abundance in a community.
  10. The richness and variety of wildlife (both plant and animal) and habitats on earth.
  11. a large number and wide range of species of animals, plants, fungi, and microorganisms. Ecologically, wide biodiversity is conducive to the development of all species.
  12. The genetic, species, and ecological diversity of the organisms in a given area.
  13. The totality of genes, species, and ecosystems in a region or the world.
  14. The variety of ecosystems and species of plants and animals that can be found in the environment.
  15. The variability among organisms on Earth and within an ecosystem. Maintaining biodiversity is necessary to preserve the health and survival of an ecosystem.

  19. The collective richness and variety of all forms of life - bacteria, archaea, eukarya and associated viruses.
  20. the combination of life forms (living organisms and ecological complexes) and genes contained within each individual, and their inter-relationships, or ecosystems, whereby the existence of any given species directly affects the others. ...
  21. The total variation in life, including the number of species, the degree of genetic variation within species, the different types of ecosystems, and the all ecosystem functions.
  22. Having many different life forms within a given area.
  23. The natural world is multi-layered and interdependent—from the ecology of micro-organisms to the ecology of plants, animals, and humans; renewal of species is dependent upon the diversity of living systems; biodiversity as the basis of life and to undermine it is to undermine life itself; the ...
  24. Biodiversity is all life on earth, even that which has yet to be discovered. More specifically, it includes the millions of diverse species, from bacteria to whales, that share the earth's lands and waters with us.
  25. The mixture of organisms that exist in a given habitat.
