About This Project
"Biodiversity" describes how many and what kind of organisms live in a place. It is an important measure of how well a habitat is doing and helpful in deciding conservation practices. It also provides useful descriptive information about a place in general. Furthermore, information on biodiversity can be used to look at how similar are various areas, and which areas- when protected- would benefit the most organisms.
