Genetic diversity


Species diversity


Induced mutations




Genetic diversity represents the total number of genetic characteristics in the genetic makeup of a species. Whereas, the genetic variability describes the tendency of genetic characteristics to vary. This diversity lets the populationĀ adapt to changing environments. For example, In India, we find mangoes with different flavors, colors, fiber content, sugar content and shelf life. The great variation is due to the genetic diversity.
So, the correct answer is 'Genetic diversity'.
