Question-2:  “We, the human species, are an integral and influential component of biodiversity”. Explain.


Answer:  Biodiversity is all the different kinds of life that can be found in one area—the variety of animals, plants, fungi, and even microorganisms like bacteria that make up our natural world.

Each of these species and organisms work together in ecosystems, like an intricate web, to maintain balance and support life.

Humans as integral part of biodiversity

  • Human bodies host living microbiomes of tiny organisms without which we cannot survive.
  • Our cultures shape the biodiversity around us, and biodiversity shapes our cultures and our future here on Earth.
  • Nature contributes not only to our economic and physical well being, but also to our minds and spiritual enrichment.
  • Global deforestation is one of the main contributors to climate change. Restoring biodiversity on large tracts of land is one of the major commitments that India has made under the Paris Accords.

Thus, the biodiversity that is all around us and inside us, that sustains us and protects us, is under assault. Humans must commit to nurture and protect all the many forms of life with which we share our planet.
