Teaching about Biodiversity. ERIC Digest.
Haury, David L.
There are three aspects to biodiversity: (1) genetic diversity within species that enables organisms to evolve and adapt to new conditions; (2) species diversity that refers to the number and kind of organisms distributed within an ecosystem; and (3) ecosystem diversity that refers to the variety of habitats and communities interacting in complex relationships. This digest offers a guide to teaching about biodiversity in the science curriculum. (CCM)
