From microbes and mycelium to insects and birds, through to plants and even people, all benefit from an area that is rich in biodiversity and natural balance.Bioversity International has created an infographic that shows just how important it is to maintain and encourage this kind of balance, as well as tips on ways to ensure it exists in your own region, be that through crop rotation or planting native flower species to encourage pollinators to visit. Check it out after the break!
