Explain why genetic biodiversity is important for the
survival of a species.

Genetic diversity (biodiversity) is the total number of
genetic characteristics that is found in the genetic make up of a species.
Genetic biodiversity plays a crucial role in the survival of a species. This is
because it makes a species capable of adapting to suit itself to the new
environments that they may find themselves in. When the habitat of a species
changes, it may be required of the species to change or, risk death. The ability
of the species to change will determine whether the species will be able t cope
with the new environment and the challenges it comes with. The adaptability of
the species will be determined by its genetic biodiversity.

Which of the following terms is a species that is considered
to be in imminent danger of extinction?

Threatened species

Endangered species

Vulnerable species

None of the above
