Agrobiodiversity, or agrobiological diversity, is the diversity of life existing at three levels: genetic, species, and ecosystem. Therefore, agrobiological diversity (agrobiodiversity) includes variety in all forms of life, from bacteria and fungi to grasses, cover crops, trees, insects, mammals, and the crops themselves. It encompasses the diversity found at all levels of organization, from genetic differences between individuals and populations (groups of related individuals) to the types of natural communities (groups of interacting species) found in a particular area. Agrobiodiversity also includes the full range of natural processes upon which life depends, such as nutrient cycling, carbon and nitrogen fixation, predation, symbiosis and natural succession.
