Biodiversity is the term used to describe the incredible variety of life that has evolved on our planet over billions of years. So far 1.75m present day species have been recorded, but there maybe as many as 13m in total. Biodiversity is the variation of life forms within a given ecosystem, biome, or on the entire Earth. Biodiversity is often used as a measure of the health of biological systems. Ecosystems are consists of living beings and nonliving elements; the living beings include both plants and animals with microbial life. The living beings make biodiversity. But due to human activities many animals and plant species are on the verge of extinction. The United Nations declared 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity. It is a celebration of life on earth and of the value of biodiversity for our lives. The world is invited to take action in 2010 to safeguard the variety of life on earth: biodiversity. Every year 22nd May is celebrated as International day for biodiversity. So, it is our duty to give the EQUAL RIGHT TO LIVE ON THIS PLANET to all living beings. Lets celebrate!
