Biodiversity is the name we use to encompass all species of flora and fauna, both wild and domesticated, the genetic differences between individuals of the same species, the habitats in which they live, and how they interact with each other, and with their physical environment. In essence, if something is alive, it is part of biodiversity, and this includes people.
