Lack of common meanings in biodiversity

Other Names:
Confusion of technical terms in biological diversity

When the subject of biological diversity research is being debated it is difficult for participants to agree on common meanings, aims, and objectives. Virtually every researcher has his or her own vision of the Biodiversity issue. Genes, species, habitats, ecosystems, landscapes provide different principles, concepts and definitions according to each researcher's background. Furthermore, if we want to focus the debate on the impact of biodiversity research on policies the scenario becomes yet more complex and there are even fewer common parameters, thus giving way more to intellectual chaos than synergy.
