Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Biodiversity

Biodiversity refers to the variety of living organisms that exist within a particular ecosystem or habitat. In the context of healthcare, biodiversity can refer to the variety of microorganisms that exist within a particular environment, such as the human body.

The human body is home to a diverse array of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. These microorganisms are known as the human microbiome, and they play important roles in maintaining health and preventing disease.

For example, the bacteria in the gut microbiome help to digest food and produce vitamins, while the skin microbiome helps to protect against infection. Dysbiosis, or an imbalance in the microbiome, has been linked to a range of health problems, including inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, and certain types of cancer.

There is growing interest in the role that biodiversity plays in healthcare, and researchers are working to understand how the microbiome affects health and disease. This research may help to identify new strategies for preventing and treating diseases that are linked to imbalances in the microbiome.
