Why more Biodiversity in Tanzania

With all the urbanisation, the destruction of forests and encroachment of Nature Reserves, Tanzania still harbours an incredible wealth of species.

Even Pugu Forest Reserve which is almost gone still has a higher richness of birds and plants per unit area than most countries in Europe.

A short video explains why biodiversity is higher in one spot than the other.

What is not covered in this video is that decline or increase in the richness of species does not follow the rule that poor relates with rich. In wealthier countries decline of species is often less or even absent for some habitats as compared to most poor countries.
