Ecosystem diversity—the earth’s variety of deserts, grasslands, forests, mountains, oceans, lakes, rivers, and wetlands is another major component of biodiver-sity. Each of these ecosystems is a storehouse of genetic and species diversity.

Yet another important component of biodiversity is functional diversity—the variety of processes such as.

A concept to consider glaciers as ecosystems consisting of ice mass and biological community of cold-tolerant organisms. Glaciers. Rila Monastery Nature Park (Bulgarian: Природен парк „Рилски манастир“) is one of the largest nature parks in Bulgaria, spanning a territory of km 2 ( sq mi) in the western part of the Rila mountain range at an altitude between and 2, metres (2, and 8, ft).

It is in Rila Municipality, Kyustendil Province and includes forests, mountain. Ecosystems entail all the living things in a particular area as well as the non-living things with which they interact, such as air, soil, water, and sunlight.

Biodiversity refers to the variety of life, including the number of species, life forms, genetic types, and habitats and biomes (which are characteristic groupings of plant and animal.

Biodiversity is a key measure of environmental quality in lake ecosystems. Lake biodiversity can be assessed using modern survey data, but typically these data only provide a ‘snap‐shot’ measure and in most cases it is not possible to reconstruct temporal trends in biodiversity, so that human impacts can be detected.

Some rocks and sediment are released from the glacial ice itself, and glacier movement also disturbs and moves underlying soil.

If the glaciers completely melt, diversity of macroinvertebrates may decrease almost 40 percent. side from being indicators of water quality, macroinvertebrates have several important roles in ecology. We argue that the role mountains play in influencing biodiversity is multi‐faceted, far‐reaching and often indirect.

Below we discuss some of the ways that mountains are involved in generating biodiversity. Mountains as cradles. Mountains can be safely called cradles of diversity. Rila (Bulgarian: Рила, pronounced) is the highest mountain range of Bulgaria and the Balkan is situated in southwestern Bulgaria and forms part of the Rila–Rhodope Massif.

The highest summit is Musala at an altitude of 2, m which makes Rila the sixth highest mountain range in Europe after the Caucasus, the Alps, Sierra Nevada, the Pyrenees and Mount Etna, and the highest. Biodiversity, A Generic View The number and types of organisms inhabiting the planet have varied immensely during geologic history.

In part, these variations have been caused by the evolution of new types of organisms and the elimination of others due to environmental changes and mass extinctions, as occurred at the end of the Mesozoic period 65 million years ago which saw the extinction of.

Aquatic ecosystems support a substantial source of the earth’s biological diversity. They are an essential reservoir and share an enormous proportion of earth’s biological productivity. Both aquatic resources and its biodiversity are interrelated to each other and they perform a myriad of functions and are valuable and essential for the sustainability of biotic communities.

Brubaker, University of Washington, Seattle, USA) and low temperature stress constitutes a filter that eliminates many organisms. Biodiversity is a measure of how many different species live in an ecosystem.

Human activities like changing land use, deforestation and peat bog destruction reduce this. Biodiversity and Climate Change: Transforming the Biosphereis the definitive statement composed by a large percentage of the leading scientific experts on the most urgent global problem short of the destruction of Earth by a planet-sized asteroid.A remark cited inBiodiversity and Climate Changestates the issue cogently: ifnothing is done about climate change, you can forget about biodiversity.

Biodiversity creates a well-functioning ecosystem, which cleanses water and air resources, minimizing the effects of pollution.

Rain forests contain 50 percent of the world’s animal and plant species. The biodiversity of these forests regulates weather patterns on Earth. Biodiversity protects against drought and erosion. The Himalaya represents the youngest and highest mountain chain of the world; it is home to billion human population plant species, source of origin for 10 major river systems of the world and repository of largest glacier cover outside the North and South Poles.

Since time immemorial, Himalaya have attracted religious people, scientists and nature lovers alike. It forms the. Where there is water, there is life. Glaciers are no exception. Research over the last thirty years supports the idea that we should rethink glacier ecosystemssince glaciers and ice-sheets lock up most of Earth’s freshwater, it could be argued that glaciers and ice-sheets are Earth’s largest freshwater ecosystems 2 and that they form a distinct biome 3.

The respective papers explore matters related to the use of an ecosystem-based approach to increase local adaptation capacity, consider the significance of a protected areas network in preserving biodiversity in a changing northern European climate, and assess the impacts of climate change on specific species, including wild terrestrial animals.

Biodiversity is not evenly distributed, rather it varies greatly across the globe as well as within regions. Among other factors, the diversity of all living things depends on temperature, precipitation, altitude, soils, geography and the presence of other study of the spatial distribution of organisms, species and ecosystems, is the science of biogeography.

Aquatic ecosystems are critical components of the global environment. In addition to being essential contributors to biodiversity and ecological productivity, they also provide a variety of services for human populations, including water for drinking and irrigation, recreational opportunities, and habitat for economically important fisheries.

The number of people alive now is at a record level and is increasing. Inthe human population exceeded seven billion for the first time. Each year about 75 million more people are born than.

A number of key studies are emerging that suggest a degree of endemicity, which may be attributable to a unique combination of selection pressures that prevail in these polar lacustrine ecosystems (Franzmann & Dobson ; Taton et al. Biodiversity is undergoing rapid change driven by climate change and other human influences.

Blowes et al. analyze the global patterns in temporal change in biodiversity using a large quantity of time-series data from different regions (see the Perspective by Eriksson and Hillebrand). Their findings reveal clear spatial patterns in richness and composition change, where marine taxa exhibit.

Other articles where Glaciation is discussed: glacial landform: are being produced today in glaciated areas, such as Greenland, Antarctica, and many of the world’s higher mountain ranges. In addition, large expansions of present-day glaciers have recurred during the course of Earth history.

In contrast, there has been a recent acceleration of the lower terminus of Tasman Glacier, from ~5 m a-1 in to 40 m a-1 in Both of these glaciers have an extensive supraglacial debris cover across their lower ablation regions, with the Khumbu Glacier terminating on land and the Tasman Glacier terminating in a proglacial lake.

High biodiversity in an ecosystem, that is a large variety of species and genes in the ecosystem contribute to a stronger ecosystem. Human life relies on our ecosystems providing the life-sustaining services of providing oxygen, detoxifying our soil and water, providing materials for clothing and shelter and providing our food and the nutrients.Ecosystem, the complex of living organisms, their physical environment, and all their interrelationships in a particular unit of space.

An ecosystem can be categorized into its abiotic constituents, including minerals, climate, soil, water, and sunlight, and its biotic constituents, consisting of all living members.
