What is Biodiversity and how does it impact us?

Biological diversity is the variety of plants, animals and other living things that reside in a specific region or area such as species that live in the Pacific Northwest compared to species that live in the tropical areas of the United States such as Florida.

It affects us human beings in many ways. The climates to which we are accustomed affect the vegetation and animals that inhabit each area, leading to different fruits and vegetables that can be produced. All types of vegetation and all creatures have a place in the world and play a fundamental part in the circle of life. Plant, animal and insect species network and are dependent on each other for what each offers, such as food, shelter, oxygen, and soil enrichment.
