Task 4: Reflection Exercise

What is biodiversity?

Biodiversity is the variability of all living organisms (including animal and plant species) of the genes of all these organisms, and the terrestrial, aquatic and marine ecosystems.

In one or two sentences, explain why biodiversity is important to us.

With every breath we take, we consume oxygen produced by forests and seas.  Every mouthful of food has been living material that relied on soil, microbes and plants to grow thus it provides us with the basics of life.

What is the key understanding of this lesson?

All living things of Earth used to be on its own but slowly it is being classified by the different kingdoms of life from 2 basic kingdoms of Plantae and Animalia till now the 5 Kingdoms, Animalia, Plantae, Monera, Protista and Fungi.
