Biodiversity is the variation between living organisms, including the genetic and structural differences between individuals and within and between individuals and species. Biodiversity has a significant role to play in climate control. Conservation of biodiversity will lead to an increase in the resilience of habitats and will improve the ability of ecosystems to provide important services during that climate pressures. Conservation of biodiversity will lead to an increase in the resilience of habitats and will improve the ability of ecosystems to provide important services during that climate pressures.

In this book, the text is organized into six units. It starts with an overview of biodiversity, in which you will know the basic concept, threats as well as conservation to biodiversity. Then, the readers are explained about the theory related to the taxonomy, which is concerned with describing, identifying, categorizing, and naming plants; and diversity in plants. The book makes them understand the various classification, ecology, and evolution of plants. Each step along the hierarchy is designed to narrow down the identification of a plant more precisely.

Further, the book deals with the study of mammals. Mammals are an extraordinary group, showing an amazing diversity of species, forms, ecologies, physiologies, life histories and behaviors.

Mammals are warm-blooded, tetrapod vertebrates that have hair, nurse their young by producing milk, and have a limited number of teeth that are modified to perform different functions.

The book also sheds light on the origin and evolution of birds, the adaptation of birds, the ecology of birds, the biology of birds, and the economic importance of birds. Moreover, it also emphasizes origin, classification, ecology and biology, of the amphibians, and conservation issues related to amphibian diversity. Finally, the book takes you through the ecology and conservation of reptiles.
