Biodiversity refers to the ecological complex formed by the genetic variation of all species and the ecosystem they live in.
It has three different levels:
- Ecosystem Diversity
- Species Diversity
- Genetic Diversity
Gaoligongshan National Nature Reserve is the world’s species gene bank and the intersection of three global biodiversity hotspots in Nujiang – Gaoligong Mountain, located in the west Yunnan province.
It has a complex topography, compressed climate zones and isolation that created the conditions for a wide spectrum of lifeforms - including nearly 3,000 different species of animals and 7,000 different species of plants.
