Even in places where nature is perceptibly altered by human actions, the number of species does not necessarily decline. DOI: Since the arrival of Homo sapiens in New Zealand sometime during the 13th century, the number of plant species in the country has doubled, from roughly 2, to more than 4,
Biodiversity is the biological variety and variability of life on Earth.

This guide identifies major studies, summarizes key findings of each and provides hyperlinks to the studies. Economic impact studies identify a variety of economic benefits generated by biodiversity. The studies described in this guide each analyzed one or more of these benefits, including the following:.

Gene conservation and maintaining genetic diversity in forest ecosystems are crucial to the preservation of forest genetic resources. This calls for.
This book brings together a selection of original studies submitted to Biodiversity and Conservation addressing aspects of the conservation and biodiversity of plants. Plants are, along with terrestrial vertebrates, the best known organisms on Earth, and so work on them can be a model for that on less known organism groups. Further, plants are crucial to ecosystem processes, and provide habitats and food for myriads of dependent organisms.
McKenzie L. The American Biology Teacher 1 May ; 80 5 : — Children today do not spend as much time outside as they did in previous generations; consequently, they are not building connectedness to nature and are less likely to engage in pro-environmental behaviors. Environmental education is one way to ameliorate this problem.
Biodiversity is the foundation of ecosystem services to which human well-being is intimately linked. No feature of Earth is more complex, dynamic, and varied than the layer of living organisms that occupy its surfaces and its seas, and no feature is experiencing more dramatic change at the hands of humans than this extraordinary, singularly unique feature of Earth. This layer of living organisms—the biosphere—through the collective metabolic activities of its innumerable plants, animals, and microbes physically and chemically unites the atmosphere, geosphere, and hydrosphere into one environmental system within which millions of species , including humans, have thrived. It follows that large-scale human influences over this biota have tremendous impacts on human well-being. It also follows that the nature of these impacts, good or bad, is within the power of humans to influence CF2.
