Biological diversity, or biodiversity, is important to the health of the world's ecosystems. The variety within and between all species of plants, animals and microorganisms and the ecosystems where they live and interact is biodiversity. The diversity of species is not evenly distributed throughout the planet because life depends on factors like temperature, altitude, brain and the presence of other species. We can prove this because tropical regions support more life than polar regions. Biodiversity is important to sustaining life on earth because it prevents anyone species from throwing the balance of nature out of order.
Islands are areas of land mass that are not connected to a continent and are surrounded by water. A group of islands is called Archipelago.
