The significance of conservation of biodiversity can be broadly be divided into the following three categories:-
1.NARROWLY UTILITARIAN ARGUMENTS (Direct Economic Uses):-
* Food(Cotton seed, Milk, lentils, wheat, rice etc), Timber(Premium timber for furniture production is available) Pharmaceutical Products (Eg. Quinin,), Industrial products(Resins, Tanins etc) are obtained.
2. BROADLY UTILITARIAN ARGUMENTS(Ecological services):-
*Producton of O2
*Combat global warming by climate regulation and regulaton of rainfall.
* Perpetuation of several plant species by pollination by insects, butterflies, bumble bees etc.
An organism may or may not have direct economic use to humans but it does possess an intrinsic value according to some religious beliefs Thus it is our moral duty to not destroy and preserve the biodiversity.
