'India has greater ecosystem diversity than Norway." Do you agree with the statement? Give reasons in support of your answer.
It is correct to state that India has greater ecosystem diversity than Norway. The primary reason for the same is that India lies primarily in the tropical and sub-tropical zone, whereas Norway lies near the Arctic region. This exposes India to greater amounts of sunshine and hence greater level of productivity at all trophic levels as compared to Norway. Also, India has greater geographical, topological and climatic diversity compared to Norway leading to greater biodiversity.
Yes. India has greater ecosystem diver system diversity than Norway having deserts, rainforests, mangroves, coral reefs, wetlands, estuaries, and alpine meadows.
