Biodiversity in building design and construction

This article needs more work. To help develop this article, click 'Edit this article' above.

Biodiversity describes the degree of diversity of all life on Earth, including:

  • Species diversity
  • Ecosystem diversity
  • Genetic diversity

Biodiversity sustains all life on Earth. In 'Sustaining Life', edited by Chivian and Bernstein they detail the life available and the impacts on humans and the loss to humans and the environment from extinctions.

It widely thought that the impact of climate change will move the Earth into the sixth great extinction event over the next 50-100 years.
