This is a resource system with tourism value that consists of a variety of living creatures.

Living organisms began to exist on Earth more than three billion years ago. Since then, they have become increasingly complex and sophisticated, have moved from marine environments to terrestrial environments, and have occupied every corner of the ocean, land and the lower part of the atmosphere, forming the biosphere. In every geographical landscape or tourism area, living creatures are the most eye-catching features. Therefore, the landscape of biological creatures (especially vegetation) and other natural tourism resources, together with the cultural tourism resources, comprise various tourism areas. Different flora and fauna tourism resource landscapes under different natural geographical conditions have made up the extensive system of tourism resources of the biosphere.
