The aim of this report is to assist in the identification of biosystematic priorities in relation to biodiversity in developing countries. Recent calculations suggest that microorganisms and invertebrates together constitute 88% of the species on Earth and are crucial to the maintenance of biodiversity as components of community structure; keystone predators, herbivores, pests Cited by:   Biological diversity (or biodiversity) is the variety of life on Earth.

It includes all living things, not just the plants and animals that are common or easily seen. It includes species that are not well known, such as microorganisms or invertebrates. Biodiversity refers to life on land, in the water, in the air, in deserts and caves—even in.

biological diversity or biodiversity, the number of species in a given habitat. Scientists have variously estimated that there are from 3 to 30 million extant species, of which million have been classified, includinginsects, 41, vertebrates, andplants; the remainder are invertebrates, fungi, algae, and microorganisms.

The current list of the world’s biodiversity is quite incomplete (Table ) and that of viruses, microorganisms, and invertebrates is especially deficient.

Like all biological systems, the oceans are experiencing an ecologically and evolutionarily unprecedented series of stresses, many of which are changing the structure and organization of marine communities. Because humans rely on the oceans for food.

(source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary Widely regarded as the most captivating, accessible, and comprehensive text for undergraduate marine biology courses, Jeffrey S. Levinton's Marine Biology: Function, Biodiversity, Ecology, Third Edition, examines marine biology from a unique global and evolutionary perspective.To group all invertebrates together is an immodest proposal, since the definition of "invertebrate" is any animal without a spinal column — no less than 97 percent of all animal species on Earth.

Invertebrates range from spiders and scorpions to centipedes and millipedes, crustaceans, insects, horseshoe crabs, worms, leeches, earthworms.Many recently published sources, especially the multiauthor volume Synopsis and Classification of Living Organisms, indicate that about million living species of all kinds of organisms have been described (Parker, ; see also the numerical breakdown according to major taxonomic category of the world insect fauna prepared by Arnett, ).).
