it can affect by being nearer to the equator and the higher the elevation the less liquid water, thinner soil, and less vegetation.Hence,pretty much if there is a lot of biodiversity between plants we have more options or chances that one of these plants will have a trait that can resist diseases against plants or pesticides. Then we can genetically engineer or pass down to these good traits to other plants so those plants can resist diseases and pesticides.
