: Biodiversity - the foundation of our lives
The term "biodiversity" expresses the richness of life on Earth at all levels of biological organization - genetic diversity, species diversity and ecosystem diversity. A wide variety of species in any ecosystem serves as a guarantee for its stability.
The term "biodiversity" is more than a scientific definition to describe the richness of life: it represents the human societys coping with the change and destruction of the ecosystem and the extinction of many species.
Accelerated development processes, which harm biodiversity and change the earths surface are known as the "biodiversity crisis". Unlike other crises - the energy crisis or global political crises, most of which are seasonal and fixable - the "biodiversity crisis" is irreversible: an extinct species will never return.
