Biodiversity, abbreviated from the terms 'biological' and 'diversity', encompasses the variety of lifeforms found at all scales of biological organisation, ranging from genes to species to ecosystems. The greatest biodiversity is found in the tropical regions of the world, particularly among tropical rainforests and coral reefs. Biodiversity is increased by genetic change and evolutionary processes and reduced by habitat destruction, population decline and extinction. There is a growing recognition that the level of biodiversity is an important factor in influencing the resilience of ecosystems to disturbance.
FSC's new ecosystem services procedure enables independent verification of biodiversity benefits. In addition, opportunities to partner with independent researchers to conduct biodiversity monitoring are abundant.
