GLRPPR Sector Resource: Biodiversity Factsheet
Biodiversity, or biological diversity, is the variability among living organisms from all sources, including terrestrial, marine, and other aquatic ecosystems, and the ecological complexes of which they are part. Biodiversity shapes the ecosystem services that contribute to human well-being--material welfare, security, social relations, health, and freedom of choice. Biodiversity is considered on three levels: species diversity, genetic diversity, and ecosystem diversity.
