Definitions of biodiversitet

Note that synonymous terms include "biologisk mangfold" (biological diversity) and "biomangfold" (also called biodiversity).

"Biologisk mangfold" is defined in section 3(c) of the Norwegian Nature Diversity Act as ecosystem and species variability and intra-species genetic variability, and the ecological relationships between ecosystem components.

A further closely related term is "naturmangfold" (natural diversity), defined in section 3(i) of the Norwegian Nature Diversity Act as biological, geological and landscape diversity that is not largely a result of human influence.
