Biodiversity has been defined by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) as the variability of all living organisms included in the aquatic, terrestrial and marine ecosystems and in the ecological complexes of which they are a part. The interactions between living organisms and the physical environment give rise to functional relationships that characterize the different ecosystems ensuring their resilience, maintaining them in a good state of conservation and providing the so-called ecosystem services.
