Abstract

All levels of biological structure, from macromolecules within cells to biomes, contribute to the enormous diversity (or heterogeneity) found in our biosphere. Earth's rich ecosystem diversity is one of her greatest strengths. Biodiversity is "the variability among living organisms from all sources including, inter alia, terrestrial, marine, and other aquatic ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part," as defined by the Resolution on Biological Diversity. This reflects the wide range of organismal, ecological diversity, and genetic available on Earth, which is supported by the more than 9 million species of life (bacteria, fungi, animals, plants, and protists) that share the planet with humans. The health of Earth's ecosystem depends on the intricate interactions of its many diverse species. But in the last few decades, we've seen a dramatic deterioration in the number of species and the range of those that remained. Humanity's disruptive activities on the Earth's environment are killing off more species, genes, and biological features than ever before
