Is biodiversity more important than the habitat itself?

    A damaged environment cannot support much biodiversity. A place with poor biodiversity won’t be much habitat for other species creating a downward spiral. Both are very closely linked especially because plants make up a significant portion of the habitats and ecosystems. I would argue that neither is more important than the other.

    Biodiversity and habitat are very closely linked. For example, tropical rainforests have very high biodiversity. This is because the diversity of plants is very high. The environmental factors in the forest are great for plants to grow – warm and a lot of moisture. Plants grow on top of other plants even! Because there are so many plants, there are many places for animals to live, breed, and find protection.

    If a habitat is damaged or sparse, there will be less animals that can live there.
