backback ecoglobe basics Biodiversity and Natural Resources
biodiversity... The variety of life includes oran utans and earth worms, bacteria and whales, sparrows and sharks, mosqitoes and viruses.

All beings together
form the diversity of lives that are in a dynamic balance. Each species depends on another, as food, or as environment to exist in.

Biodiversity is a result of Nature's development. Man has no means to judge or decide which species would be "superfluous" or "harmful". Our interventions by over-hunting or elimination of "pests" and illnesses has frequently lead to a disbalance, and aggravation of the problems.

"Natural resources" is the term we use for anything we draw from nature, living beings or minerals. Virtually all "resources" that We are using are killed or extracted at rates that by far exceed the speeds at which nature could regenerate.
