Biodiversity: the variety of life in the world.

I suppose we have a right to this. Or we only face the need for the right in the situation of people deliberately trying to erase a species from our planet. We seek new experiences, always. If we cant see new animals, try new foods and visit new places then where is the beauty in difference?

I believe every living thing should have this right. This world brings some such greatness, the different type or animals, plants including humans make this world a better place. This world would not be complete without biodiversity. EA

The variability among living organisms from all sources including terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems, and the ecological complexes of which they are part; this includes diversity within species, between species, and of ecosystems.

Biodiversity maintain a balance on our planet; this is definitely a right. If we fail to respect or deny the right of an organism, we may be hurting ourselves in the process. Gary Norris

Diversity is the spice of life. How boring would it be if we all looked the same with the same pets and the same clothes? Pretty boring. I think we should all strive to keep this right. --Rosa F.

For starters, biodiversity is a measure of the health of our ecosystems. It’s like a variety of all living things. Different shapes, sizes and colors. Just like humans. The right to biodiversity is like the right to survive while being unique.

the world needs different things in order to survive. the world would be very dull without it. who wants to see the same things every day. we need new colors, new things, new reasons.

The right to Bio-diversity should be kept because their are a lot of living organism that are dying and this will help secure their existence.

I'm also in accord with having things look "cookie cutter". The beauty of bio-diversity is unlike any other. Also, things such as scientific and medical advancement, the finding of a new species, come from having bio-diversity.

Biodiversity is a degree of variations of life forms within a given eco system, or an entire plant. Conserving biodiversity is a primary way to sustain healthy ecosystem and the service they provide us. I will use disease as an example. If we maintain biodiversity it may protect us against emerging diseases. There is a biodiversity-human health project that exists to help manage emerging diseases domestically and internationally

If biodiversity is not maintained then we run the risk of destroy a chain of spieces. All living spieces were created to help one another.

The majority of panic at this time that happened to those species of plants and animals are connected to human action. Sometimes people even want to decrease their quantity. The protection of biodiversity is essential for
ecological permanence and preserving the collections, and it is also a resource for research. Experiments and statistics performed by scientists said 28 percent of plants have diminished over the last 20 years. These consequences were sustained by wide poverty of habitats affected by human activities. If we do not want to lose all our plants and animals, then we really need a Biodiversity right to moderate the situation.

The right to biodiversity isn't exclusive to humans. It's actually meant for every other organism on this planet. Plants and animals are always going extinct, but this may occur "naturally." Humans destroy habitats, cut off food supplies, and hunt for game. We're killing not only other animals, but ourselves as well. It sounds rather pretentious for humans to discuss this right when the only ones endangering people are OTHER people.

Marcia P posted a comment that was right on the money. Everything and everyone has a specific purpose. We all help each other in one form or another.

The world has been uniquely formed by biodiversity. Just take a look around you and you will find biodiversity and the beauty within. E.S.

Pedro said...

The Right to Biodiversity is best kept through the human belief of coexisting with nature. By cleaning our environment and reducing development is the only way to maintain our planet's biodiversity.P.L

Could not find the definition in Webster's 9th Edition Dictionary. But I found out plenty on the internet. The variety of life on Earth, its biological diversity is commonly referred to as biodiversity. The number of species of plants, animals, and microorganisms, the enormous diversity of genes in these species, the different ecosystems on the planet, such as deserts, rainforests and coral reefs are all part of a biologically diverse Earth. Appropriate conservation and sustainable development strategies attempt to recognize this as being integral to any approach. Almost all cultures have in some way or form recognized the importance that nature, and its biological diversity has had upon them and the need to maintain it. Yet, power, greed and politics have affected the precarious balance.

Life without biodiversity would be like a buffet with only one flavor or a song with only one note, just boring.

Difference is what makes all of us unique. Biodiversity is such a beautiful thing because humans,and animals are all different. Different cultures, different species. We are never going to be alike in any way.

All living things should have this right although seasons change and so do species.

Biodiversity is what makes this planet. Without having a variety of species this would be a dull world. We all have the right to biodiversity. Although we are all different, that's what makes us more united. Being different helps us compliment one another. If we were missing a species, we would miss the beauty it holds.

Biodiversity is what makes our world unique and beautiful. From the seas to vast lands, species come in all shapes and sizes. As humans we should help these wonderful animals by preserving their environments.

The Biodiversity it is thanks to the Creator of the Universe. Therefore, we must maintain our diversity as human and keep the balance in every kind of life.

Janet Almonte said...

What is biodiversity? Biodiversity is a contraction of “biological diversity.” Bio comes from the term biology, which means a variation of life forms within the ecosystem or planet. Diversity is the condition of having or being composed of differing elements. This phrase has taken on a meaning all on its own and expresses the differences within nature and the environment. The right to biodiversity is the entitlement to be different and to have a place on our earth.

The right to biodiversity is something that every living creature is born with; nothing in this world is an exact copy of another, not even identical twins. Being different is what makes each living creature special.

We should preserve every scrap of biodiversity as priceless while we learn to use it and come to understand what it means to humanity. Yet, despite our many advances, our environment is still threatened by a range of problems, including global climate change, energy dependence on unsustainable fossil fuels, and loss of biodiversity.

Biodiversity is vital in nature's ability to evolve and survive for all species. For example, Florida Panther populations are jeopardized by inbreeding due to loss of habitat and other factors, and per http://www.floridapanthernet.org/index.php/handbook/threats/inbreeding_threatens_populations/ "Less variability means that a population may be less able to adapt to environmental change or to survive a particular disease."

Biodiversity of species is something natural and part of the life in this world. Therefore is an innate right that should be respect it.

Without biodiversity there would be no earth. In my perspective biodiversity is what makes the world we live on. I cannot imagine if there was no variety in this world. We need the right to biodiversity in order to live in this world.

Biodiversity is what makes us who we are. We should appreciate all of the different beauties in all living organisms on earth. --KB

Biodiversity is a beautiful thing, it makes way for many new kinds of lives on Earth and makes room for evolvement but may also cause some species to go extinct after a vast period of time. – D.T

I believe that every living thing on earth should have this right. It makes new life on earth. We just need to look at our surroundings and we will see biodiversity everywhere. That is what makes our world special.

I believe that the right to biodiversity is a way to demonstrate how special and how important every being is on earth.

Ingrid J. said...

Just looking at our world explains the right to biodiversity. If we and our generations to come are to survive, biodiversity must be maintained.

I believe we do have the right to biodiversity. We continue evolving and adapting to the environment around us and we all are unique to one another. It is fascinating to see such diversity within plants, animals and insects. -v.p.

TrustMeImADoctor said...

As time passes nature alters, the environment we live in changes, and the ability to survive becomes challenged. So as living organisms our nature means we will adapt and change as well, this creates a diversity like none other. Every organism has the right to diversity which in turns means survival.

Biodiversity is a measure of the health of our ecosystem. The greater the biodiversity, the healthier our ecosystem is. By protecting the right of the species on it, we protect and ensure a healthier environment for all of us.GS

Biodiversity is important as it is our planet is undergoing a biodiversity crisis. Globally, at least 16,000 species are threatened with extinction, including 12 per cent of birds, 23 per cent of mammals and 32 per cent of amphibians.

The human impacts from development, deforestation, pollution and climate change are destroying the homes and habitat of wildlife around the world.
