The Importance Of Environmentally Vital Environments For Biodiversity Restoration

importance of ecosystem diversity

The importance of ecosystem diversity is described quite well by the example of the recently famous yellow fever vaccine. This required some time for the science to catch up to real life, but in the end it was found that a small segment of the population was immune to the shot. This means that most of us could be immune if we had a healthy environment to live in and a large enough population of the right type of animal. The important point to note here is that the environment and the animal are both extremely large.

Importance Of Biodiversity Ecosystem

The importance of ecosystem biodiversity can also be explained by the simple fact that a lack of it resulted in a highly endemic outbreak of Lyme disease in the United States. It is estimated that there are over 1.25 million cases of Lyme Disease in the United States today. This does not include international Lyme Disease cases and those in other countries. This is going to take some time to explain so just hold tight.

Firstly, it is important to understand why Lyme Disease is so prevalent in the United States. It is worth noting that it has been around since the 1970s. This means that most if not all of the economic, environmental, and geographical factors that allowed the spread of Lyme Disease in the first place have already been addressed. In addition, two independent viruses have been identified as the cause. These include Spirochete and the genus Ruminococcus.

Reason Behind The Spread Of Lyme Disease

Secondly, we need to look at why the spread of Lyme Disease has occurred in specific regions of the country. Areas that have experienced significant increases in the number of tick bites have been hit the hardest. Lyme Disease occurs most commonly in areas with a high concentration of deer and other big game animals. This is why there has been and continues to be an increase in the sales of Deer Deterriers around the country.

Botanical Gardens Are Also Very Diverse

The most important thing for any botanical garden is to maintain an adequate level of diversity in the plant species that are chosen to fill the space. Botanical gardens should also be regions that promote the conservation of other natural resources. This is why it is important to think about the role of an appropriate climate and pH balance, as well as the necessity of a suitable pH environment for the growth of certain plants and animals.

Lastly, we need to look at how the lack of diversity in a given area is impacting the overall health of that area. If the lack or depletion of certain species in an ecosystem is causing a severe reduction in biodiversity, this can have serious ramifications for both human health and the environment. It can also lead to the extinction or reduction of those species that are left in the area. Thus, it is essential that if a reduction in the number of species is taking place, that reduction needs to be addressed. This can best be done through ensuring that proper measures are taken to reintroduce the desired species into the ecosystem, or through the creation of another habitat in its place.


In conclusion, we have looked at the importance of maintaining or improving ecological processes that maintain or improve the health of ecosystems. These include the maintenance of an adequate number of keystone species, the protection of existing habitats, and the enhancement of species richness through proper management and protection. It is important to recognize the importance of ecosystem plant species richness in maintaining or enhancing ecological functions. This can be done through a combination of actions. These actions include properly protecting existing habitats by eliminating threats to the species already present, through effective conservation and restoration, and through the creation or construction of new habitats that allow for the continued survival of existing species and the growth of new ones. In addition, we can also benefit from the knowledge gained from our travels and consultations to understand more fully the biological processes involved in maintaining or improving ecosystem plant species richness.
