DEFINITIONS

While the concept is old as life itself, 'biodiversity' is a new term, coined as recently as 1986. Some ask how to integrate biodiversity and tourism. Others ask how to protect biodiversity from tourism.

What is biodiversity? According to Wikipedia: "One definition holds that biological diversity is a measure of the relative diversity among organisms present in different ecosystems. Diversity in this definition includes diversity within species and among species, and comparative diversity among ecosystems. Another definition, simpler and clearer, but more challenging, is the totality of genes, species, and ecosystems of a region."
