may not precisely correspond to diversity at other levels. Woese, Carl ; Gogarten,. Finally, we acknowledge that categories of difference are not always fixed but also can be fluid, we respect individual rights to self-identification, and we recognize that no one culture is intrinsically superior to another.

Ecological Modelling, 346, 70-76. Grass cultivars: their origins, development, and use on national forests and grasslands in the Pacific Northwest. 85 This study led to the idea that biodiversity is autocatalytic. 7 8 Contents Extinction edit Main article: Extinction event Visual representation of the history of life on Earth as a spiral Species go extinct constantly as environments change, as organisms compete for environmental niches, and as genetic mutation leads to the rise of new species.
