What is biodiversity?
Why is biodiversity important?
Biodiversity contributes to ecosystem services such as soil formation, water and air purification, pollination and the functioning of natural regulatory mechanisms.
Biodiversity also has economic value, as it underpins many products and services such as food production, pharmaceuticals and tourism.
Unfortunately, biodiversity is in constant decline due to environmental changes, habitat destruction, the spread of invasive species and human activities. It is therefore of paramount importance to conserve and maintain biodiversity.∑: biodiversity, diversity, organisms, functioning, ecosystems, environmental, services, living, things
