Maximum biodiversity is found in


Tropical rain forests


Temperate rain forests


Mangrove vegetation




Maximum biodiversity is found in Tropical rain forests. One of the reasons is that tropical environments,Ā unlike temperate ones, are less seasonal, relatively more constantĀ and predictable. Such constant environments promote nicheĀ specialization and lead to greater species diversity.Ā Examples:-
A) A forest in a tropicalĀ region like Equador has up to 10 times as many species of vascularĀ plants as a forest of equal area in a temperate region like the MidwestĀ of the USA.Ā 
B) The largely tropical Amazonian rain forest in SouthĀ America has the greatest biodiversity on earth- it is home to moreĀ than 40,000 species of plants, 3,000 of fishes, 1,300 of birds, 427Ā of mammals, 427 of amphibians, 378 of reptiles and of more thanĀ 1,25,000 invertebrates.
So, the correct answer is 'Tropical rain forests'.
