What is biodiversity?For many this term is really off-putting, but it’s one we’re stuck with – for now. In simple terms the word biodiversity can be described as the variety of plants and animals (species) and the places they live (ecosystems). An important aspect of biodiversity is the interconnectedness between all species, in other words the way in which they depend on one another for survival. The word biodiversity is made up from the term ‘biological diversity’. This diversity is the astounding array of plant and animal species that perform a vital role in the web of life.
