Forests are “biodiversity hot spots’. Justify this statement.
Forests are “biodiversity hot spots’. The measure of the biodiversity of an area is the number of species found there. Since in a forest there is a wide range of different life forms (bacteria, fungi, fern, flowering plants, nematodes, insects, birds, reptiles and so on) it can be termed a “biodiversity hotspot’. One of the main aims of conservation is to try and preserve the biodiversity we have inherited.
