Correct option is
C

Transition zone is legally protected as undisturbed ecosystem.

  • A biosphere reserve is a unique protected area which is different from a national park because:-
1) It is meant for the conservation of genetic resources, species and the ecosystem.
2) It helps in scientific research.
3) It also helps to promote sustainable development.
  • National parks are primarily for the conservation of species and secondarily for scientific research.
  • Biosphere reserve has three zones namely core area (includes protected areas), a buffer zone (surrounds and protects the core area) and transition zone (the large outer area where people live and work and use the natural resources of that area).
  • So, the correct answer is 'The transition zone is legally protected as undisturbed ecosystem'.
