Biodiversity is the 'Full variety of Life on Earth'. It includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystem. Biodiversity plays an important role in climate regulation. Biodiversity conservation will lead to strengthening of ecosystem resilience and will improve the ability of ecosystem to provide important services during increasing climate pressures. But due to anthropogenic activities the global climate has changed since last few decades.This climate change adversely affected the biological resources of the country. This review basically discuss the importance of biodiversity, the consequences faced by the plants, animals, humans and ecosystem owing to the climate change and also control measures or strategies should be taken for the conservation of biodiversity which can protect the earth from the consequenceof climate change.
