2. Biodiversity generally increase from Earth's poles to the equator.This means that greater biodiversity in warm areas.
Why is biodiversity greater closer to the equator?More living things are able to survive in consistently warm temperature changes during a year.(McDougal Littell Georgia Biology,Stephen Nowick,page 5)
