Importance of Biodiversity:

Biodiversity is an element of vital importance for natural life. Biodiversity must be protected and maintained for the continuity of natural life and the healthy functioning of    ecosystems. Here are some points explaining the importance of biodiversity for natural life:

  • Ecosystem Functions: Biodiversity ensures the functionality of ecosystems. Different plant and animal species contribute to food webs in ecosystems and processes such as pollination and seed dispersal. These processes ensure the balanced functioning of ecosystems and the provision of essential ecosystem services.

  • Food Security: Biodiversity plays a critical role in providing food resources for humans. Different types of plants are used as agricultural products, fruits and vegetables, grains and other food sources. Animals also provide protein sources such as meat, milk and eggs. Thanks to biodiversity, access to different food sources is possible and food security is ensured.

  • Medicine and Medical Resources: Biodiversity provides medicinal resources through plants, microorganisms and other organisms found in natural life. Many medications and treatment methods are based on compounds obtained from natural sources. Biodiversity contains potential resources for the discovery of new drugs and the development of therapeutics.

  • Economic Value: Biodiversity provides economic value. The tourism sector is based on the attractiveness of the natural environment and biodiversity. Natural areas attract the attention of tourists and provide tourism income. Additionally, biodiversity-based sectors contribute to economic activities through sectors such as agriculture, fisheries and forestry.

  • Ecosystem Stability and Resilience: Biodiversity increases the stability and resilience of ecosystems. The existence of different species allows ecosystems to adapt to changing conditions and remain in balance. Excessive increase or decrease of a single species can lead to imbalances and dysfunctions in ecosystems. Biodiversity supports the healthy functioning of ecosystems and adaptation to environmental changes.

  • Biodiversity ensures the continuity of natural life, preserves the functionality of ecosystems, provides food security, provides medical resources, creates economic value and increases the stability of ecosystems.​
