Genetic diversity is refers to the variety of genes within a species. In food system, genetic diversity provides the foundation of crop development, and food security. It can also promote resistance and resilience to environmental stress including diseases and pest of crops and livestock. Biodiversity can lead to important developments in human medicine because of the studies of physiology, biochemistry, and wildlife anatomy. There are example of species of interest to medical science it includes bears (for cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, insights into osteoporosis and renal disease), horse-shoe crabs (molecular cell biology, and ophthalmology), sharks (immunology and osmoregulation), and cetaceans (treatments for divers that is suffering from decompression sickness and respiration). Biodiversity can help in traditional and modern medicine in terms of biodiversity can utilize wild animals and plants, particularly for indigenous and local communities. Most of the modern drugs came from wild species like Exanitide from Heloderma lizards (treatment for diabetes) Taxol from Taxus trees and Hycamtin from Camptotheca trees (anti-cancer drug) Zinconitide from cone snail toxin (inter alia pain killers) and Lanoxin from Digitalis plants (cardiac drugs). Many other species are potentially important species are yet
