    Species- one of the basic units of biological classification and a taxonomic rank. A species is often defined as a group of organisms capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring. Species that are believed to have the same ancestors are grouped together, and this group is called a genus. A species can only belong to the genus that it was grouped into.

    Organism- any contiguous living system (such as animal, fungus, micro-organism, or plant). All
    organisms are capable of response to stimuli, reproduction, growth and
    development, and maintenance of homoeostasis as a stable whole.

    prey (the organism that is attacked). Predators may increase the biodiversity of communities by
    preventing a single species from becoming dominant.

    biome, or an entire planet. Biodiversity is a measure of the health of ecosystems.
    Biodiversity impacts human health in a number of ways, both positive and negative.
