Lecture 22 Biodiversity Song

Biodiversity (to the tune of “Silver Bells”)

There are hotspots
in the tropics
where we find much more life
next to mountains microclimates are found
high light input
'bundant water
organisms speci'lize
Across every hectare you'll find:

(chorus)
Bio-di (bio-di), ver-sity (ver-sity)
The species of life on the planet
Trees and birds (trees and birds), fishes too (fishes too)
Most of the species are insects

Alpha, beta
and there's gamma
measure the vari'ty of life
at sites, between them and n'landscapes

Colder climates
Dryer weather
Lowered productiv'ty
These factors do tend to lower

(Chorus)
