Though it is common to consider biodiversity to refer to the number of species in a location, there are several ways in which the term biodiversity can be used. Species diversity measures both species number and relative abundance of each species, while genetic diversity refers to the genetic variation between individuals of a single population. Habitat diversity refers to the number of different habitats within a location.
