Biodiversity is the different taxonomic life forms found in a given ecosystem, biome or the biosphere. Richer the biodiversity healthier the biological system.

As the very name suggests, it refers to diversity in biological field. It could be defined as the number and variety of different species of organisms who are found within a specified geographic region. It refers to plants, animals & human beings (all different life forms within a given ecosystem or the entire Earth). Every should have bio-diversity to maintain an ecological balance & India is one such country which has bio-diversity in abundance. In this word, the letters "bio" stand for different forms of biologial life and the letters "diversity" stand for variety/variations for different species.

Biological Diversity as the variability among living organisms from all sources (land, sea, fresh water) and the ecological complexes of which they are a part. Thus biological diversity includes diversity within and between species, and diversity of ecosystems. This includes natural and cultivated species, varieties, and ecosystems.
