Three types of biodiversity
There are three aspects to biodiversity: species diversity, genetic diversity
and ecosystem diversity. All three interact and change over time and from
place to place.
Species diversity refers to the variety of different living things.
Genetic diversity refers to the variations between individuals of a species characteristics passed down from parents to their offspring.
Ecosystem diversity refers to the great variety of environments produced by the interplay of the living (animals and plants) and non-living world (earth forms, soil, rocks and water).
