Biodiversity, 10 places, 10 environments




Biodiversity "is life". There is an extremely rich diversity of living things which involves all environments and latitudes but remains relatively unknown. Biodiversity is essential for humans because it provides them with essential services (resources, ecological services, chemical and therapeutic innovations, feedback effect on changes, etc.). The main challenge for researchers is to understand the organization and dynamics of biodiversity and its role in how ecosystems function.

The exhibition "Biodiversité, 10 lieux, 10 milieux" (Biodiversity, 10 places, 10 environments) provides an image-based report on ten environments with remarkable biodiversity. These are tropical, insular, marine, polar, desert, agricultural, mountain, urban, Mediterranean and past environments.
