BENEFITS OF BIODIVERSITY Food/Drink Fuel Medicine Batter crop varieties Industrial MaterialNon-Consumptive Value:RecreationEducation and ResearchTraditional value
CONCLUSIONBiodiversity is our life. If the Biodiversity got lost atthis rate then in near future, the survival of humanbeing will be threatened.
