    The purpose of this paper is to describe the concept of biodiversity in school context. Teaching about biodiversity and its conservation could be an effective means of communicating the significance of various species and ecosystems and our dependence on ecological life support systems. As such, some implications for biodiversity education are provided in the conclusion. Three-phase model with four main guidelines for teaching biodiversity are outlined, recommending teaching from species to genetic level, from local to planetary conservation problems, from direct to symbolic experiences, and from individual to societal level.
