Have a Question?
Q: How would you define biodiversity in layman's terms?
A: Biodiversity is both life itself and life giving. It provides us with food, medicine, clothing, building materials, fertile land, clean water, pure air, a stable climate, and spiritual respite. It has served us for all of human consciousness.
