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.

ROM visitors love the live hive of European Honey Bees in the Hands-on Biodiversity Gallery. The queen bee is currently “spotted” with a bright green dot. As long as she is near the front of the display, visitors can find her, and receive an “I found the Queen Bee” sticker.
