Can somebody please explain this to me - there's a small section in my notes about it and I don't really understand it.
Thanks!

The alleles contains a variety and so possible combinations of genes. The tern biodiversity itself stands for the variety of life on our planet. So I would say that alleles are a reason for biodiversity.

From that point of view alleles are proportional to biodiversity: the higher the variety of alleles, the higher the biodiversity in our ecological systems.

So, the more combination of genes the higher the biodiversity within an ecosystem?

The higher the variety is, the more properties are influenced by combination. Combinations are the results of the varieties. If the variety is very high, it is very likely that different individuals of a species have different properties what leads to a high biodiversity.
