Biodiversity

Variation within genomes, species or entire ecosystems are an expression of biodiversity. Equatorial regions are especially biodiverse as are coasts with high sea temperatures. Global deforestation is a major factor contributing to the reduction in biodiversity, effectively putting many species in danger of extinction.
