Our Ecosystems An ecosystem is the complex of physical, chemical and biological characteristics influencing the make-up of a distinctive community of plants and animals, and differing from other such communities. Ecosystems can be defined very broadly, such as freshwater or marine, or more narrowly, such as coral reefs, seagrass beds and muddy.

For effective implementation of the Biological Diversity Act notifications / guidelines are issued from time to time with the able guidance of experts in the field.

Notifications were issued covering Threatened species, Collaborative research project national repositories etc., for implementation of the BD Act. It contains rare and endangered wildlife species and communities, self-regulating ecosystems of biological diversity.
