Human biodiversity (HBD) has been defined as "the diversity found among and between human populations that has a biological basis."[1]

HBD "research is conducted in numerous academic disciplines and their subfields such as biology, genetics, medicine, neurology, psychology, and anthropology. hbd research also draws on social, historic, and prehistoric data related to human populations. (there is no separate academic discipline known as “human biodiversity.”)"[1]

HBD blogs and forums can be seen as part of a HBD community, which often discuss the rapidly expanding amounts of genetic research which have found genetic explanations for human differences. Also discussed are other related topics such as evolutionary psychology.

Critics have argued that HBD is synonymous with "scientific racism" or race realism, but race differences are only one aspect of human biodiversity.
