The need for an inventory and classification of special cases of diversity as one of the manifestations of variability is emphasized. The meaning of the term "biodiversity" is under debate. Taxa of biodiversity are termed "various", and the future science devoted to the investigation of diversity is called "variology" ("biovariology", concerning biological objects). Infraspecific and species diversity, as well as diversity of communities and the groups of species represent the main types of biodiversity. Main principles of the classification of infraspecific and species diversity are discussed. Modern methodological approaches to the study of species diversity of algae are elucidated. Strategies algae diversity to conserve are elaborated.
