Biodiversity can be defined simply as the diversity of living things. It can be measured on a genetic level (diversity of genes within a species); on a species level (number of different species); and at an ecosystem level (number of functioning habitat types of different successional stages and ecological vegetation classes). All three levels of biodiversity are intertwined and must be protected. This Biodiversity Plan provides an overview of Banyule's biodiversity assets and lists actions and indicators to justify, direct and monitor our management of biodiversity within the municipality.
