Abstract

Biodiversity is defined as the variability among living organisms from all sources including iteralia terrestrial, marine and other aquatic systems and the ecological complexes of which they are part (CBD). It means the variability of biological resources from genes to ecosystems. Three major components of this diversity are species diversity, ecosystem diversity and genetic diversity. A clear distinction has to be made between biological diversity and biological resources. A biological resource is a given example of a gene, species or ecosystem. From the definition it may be clear that biodiversity is a complex because of diversity is multidimensional and involves several components. The CBD seeks the goal of (i) the conservation of biological diversity (ii) sustainable use of its components (iii) the fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from the use of genetic resources. Determining the priorities for conservation of the biological resources, a thorough knowledge about diversity is essential.
