Abstract

Biodiversity is a fairly new word. It is a combination of the words: biological and diversity. "The contracted form 'biodiversity' was apparently coined by Walter G. Rosen in 1985 for the first planning meeting of the 'National Forum on Biodiversity' held in Washington DC in September 1986, the proceedings of which brought the notion of biodiversity to the attention of a wide field of scientists and others (Heywood, 1995).
