Ecosystem diversity deals with the variations in ecosystems within a geographical location and its overall impact on human existence and the environment. Ecological diversity is a type of biodiversity. It is the variation in the ecosystem found in a region or the variety in ecosystems over the whole planet.
Life in different forms exist in many and very different types of ecosystems such as: Deserts, Rain Forests, Tundra, Coral Reefs, Polar Caps, Mountain Ranges, Tropical Evergreen and Prairies to name but a few.
Do you recognize any of these types of habitats? Talk about them with your class and teacher. Discuss the various habitats and talk about your favourite one.
"Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get!"
On Earth we have cold, hot, wet and dry weather. If you could choose, which would be your favourite? Create a project to tell us about which habitat you have chosen.
Send us your work! We'd love to upload it on our website for everyone to see.
