"Biodiversity" is a phrase that was brought to us in 1986 and is the abbreviation for biological diversity. At the beginning, it meant an overall investigation on the different species and categories of all plants, animals, fungi, and micro-organisms. Later, the academic definition for biodiversity has been expanded to the variability of living organisms and all kinds of ecosystems, including different layers of life forms starting from genes, individuals, groups, species, community, and ecosystems and on to land scope. Also, with a broader definition, it also means the complicated, close and fragile interdependent relationship between different kinds of organisms living in different kinds of artificial or natural systems. It not only seeks for the coexistence and mutual prosperity of mankind and the biosphere, but also contains economic, scientific, educational, cultural, ethical, and aesthetic values.Alpha Networks plans to further understand the spirit of biodiversity and contribute to its conservation.
