    Biodiversity is defined by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) as the variability among living organisms from all sources including, among other things, 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. It includes species diversity, genetic diversity and ecosystem diversity. Species diversity is the diversity of all the species on earth from single-celled bacteria and protists to all the species of the multicellular kingdom. Genetic diversity is the variation within species due to geographical separation and intraspecific variation within the population. Recent developments in the biotechnological applications utilizing genetic diversity are ready to supply several wonder drugs to mankind. Ecosystem diversity is the variation of different biological communities and their interaction with the biotic and abiotic environment. Marine ecosystem provides several important ecosystem services and goods to human beings for their welfare in the form of essential goods.
