Biodiversity Biodiversity is not evenly distributed, rather it varies greatly across the globe as well as within regions Among other factors, the diversity of all living things depends on temperature, precipitation, altitude, soils, geography and the presence of other species.The study of the spatial distribution of organisms, species and ecosystems, is the science of biogeography. Join the BIG Challenge Website about the BIG Challenge the initiative from the Biodiversity Interest Group run by CIRIA Homepage BIOFIN The pathway to impact BIOFIN countries share finance solutions implementation in Europe Asia Pacific region Loss of Biodiversity and Extinctions Global Issues The loss of biodiversity is increasing There is massive extinction from human activity For example, fish stocks are dwindling, forest loss is resulting in the loss of many species, land and other resources are being misused, leading to various long terms costs.

Why Is Biodiversity Important Who Cares Global Issues Biodiversity is important, 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.
