ROM Biodiversity

ROM Biodiversity

Biodiversity means life.  It includes every living thing, from mosquitoes to rhinoceros to giant redwoods. Biodiversity also refers to the complex interactions among living things: it is the interconnected web of living systems, ranging from microscopic life on a single leaf of a tree to the ecosystem of a rain forest to the ecology of an immense region to the entire Planet. They are all their own systems. And they are all interconnected

ROM Biodiversity is a leading resource for understanding and conserving our natural world.

You may have seen lots of ladybird beetles flying about recently. Unlike our native species which are adapted to Canadian winters, the Asian Multicoloured Ladybird Beetle (Harmonia axyridis) has to find a place to hibernate over the winter, usually indoors. With the warm weather we have had this week; they have been scouting out the best south facing walls of buildings (like here at the ROM). We were out collecting a few for a gallery exhibit on invasive species.
