Educator Resources: Health and Biodiversity Lesson Plan
Educators can point to rainforests as an ideal labratory for studying Biodiversity. The large number of species present in an ecosystem, the genetic diversity within those species and the diversity of different ecosystems across larger regions also is important.
This lesson plan from Science NetLinks increases student understanding of why diversity within and among species is important and allows students to explore the benefits of biodiversity as it relates to human health. Click here for the lesson plan.
