Biodiversity is the variety and variability of life on ersity is typically a measure of variation at the genetic, species, and ecosystem level. Terrestrial biodiversity is usually greater near the equator, which is the result of the warm climate and high primary productivity. Biodiversity is not distributed evenly on Earth, and is richest in the tropics. Chapter 1. What is biodiversity, and why is it important? Biodiversity; Biodiversity Book this universal impact that human beings are now having on planet earth has led to the development of a term which is the Anthropocene.

Over the last two decades, an increasing body of information has been added to the biodiversity science and the subject matter has become more and more voluminous. Biodiversity has now become a multidisciplinary subject in which concepts, ideas and methodologies have been contributed by a number of other disciplines. However, there is a dearth of comprehensive textbooks on biodiversity science /5(3). The source of the book is the National Forum on BioDiversity, held in Washington, D.C., on September 21–24, , under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences and Smithsonian Institution. The forum was notable for its large size and immediately perceived impact on the public.

Biological diversity (or biodiversity, as it has come to be called) 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 frequency.

The principal objective of this book is to bring about a better scientific understanding of biodiversity, which is an essential prerequisite for its efficient and rational use.

This is one of the key concerns of the Convention on Biological Diversity, adopted by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED).

This book series provides complete, comprehensive and broad Biodiversity & development book based reviews about existing biodiversity of different habitats and conservation strategies in the framework of different technologies, ecosystem diversity, and genetic diversity. The book has many illustrations (nine half tone and 45 coloured), and in general is suitable for researchers and policy makers wishing to understand how international and national agreements relate to issues in their own lives, and the relevance of grassroot initiatives and bottom-up solutions for sustainable development.” (Rajani Srivastava.
