The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) is a consortium of natural history and botanical libraries that cooperate to digitize the legacy literature of biodiversity held in their collections and to make that literature available for open access and responsible use as a part of a global “biodiversity commons.”. 1. What is biodiversity?: a definition of biodiversity and its value; 2. Ecological concepts and principles: general understandings and assumptions about biodiversity; and 3. Application of ecological concepts and principles: ways to maintain biodiversity including what can be done and how to do Size: KB.
Biodiversity in the Balance clearly outlines why setting conservation priorities is important, what methods and approaches have been used to date, and how setting biodiversity priorities can be more effective for a range of conservation objectives. Half a decade later this publication based on a chapter included in the book “Nature in the Balance: The Economics of Biodiversity” (eds. Dieter Helm and Cameron Hepburn), describes the life of TEEB to date, progress made towards its goal of mainstreaming the economics of nature, the main challenges as the initiative begins a phase of.
from book Development and Organization of Cell Types and Tissues (pp) Plant Biodiversity. that human societies will thrive when in balance. Biodiversity is important, more than just the 'I want my children to enjoy it' reason. For example, the richness of diversity allows medicines and foods to be naturally available. The natural disaster prevention mechanisms in most ecosystems and other free services we all get from the surrounding environment are not easily replaceable or replicable, so maintaining biodiversity is important.

In Life in the Balance, Niles Eldredge argues that the Earth is confronting a disaster in the making--an ecological crisis that, if left unresolved, could ultimately lead to mass extinction on the scale of that which killed the dinosaurs sixty-five million years g for general readers, he reviews compelling evidence for this biodiversity crisis, showing that4/5.
This book sets out the building blocks of an economic approach to biodiversity, and in particular brings together conceptual and empirical work on valuation, international agreements, the policy instruments, and the institutions.

Biodiversity refers to the variety of living species on Earth, including plants, animals, bacteria, and fungi. While Earth’s biodiversity is so rich that many species have yet to be discovered, many species are being threatened with extinction due to human activities, putting the Earth’s magnificent biodiversity at risk.

Biodiversity is not limited to all the species living in a given location, but also includes all the interactions between species. To understand the very basis of life on Earth, it is essential to understand these relationships that form a complex, fragile balance.Biodiversity is particularly important for creating sustainability because of the specialized roles each species plays in maintaining ecological balance.
Communities can promote healthy wildlife by supporting integrative approaches for managing, protecting, and enhancing wildlife populations and habitats appropriate to their area.Biodiversity is the amount of variety of life on Earth.
It is the number of different species of plants, animals, and microorganisms. It includes organisms from Earth’s vastly different ecosystems, including deserts, rainforests, coral reefs, grasslands, tundra, and polar ice caps.
