Abstract: Biodiversity refers to the variety of life and its processes, including the variety of living organisms. Species diversity is the number of different species in a particular ecosystem or on Earth. The number of species that live in a certain location is called species richness. Species diversity is the number of different species that are represented in a given community. Out of 30 edible insects consumed, Orthopterans order shared with maximum number of 10 species followed by Hymenoptera of 6 species, Coleopteran of 5 species then Hemipterans by 3 species and Lepidoptera by 2 species and then Odonota, Mantodea, Blattollidea and Isopteran by 1 species respectively. The various tribes choose the edible insects on the basis of their traditional belief, taste and regional and seasonal availability. Calculating Shannon’s index of diversity in four different sampling habitats, shows that, the highest diversity of edible insects found in Open field ((H’=2.563) followed by Agricultural Field (H’= 2.442) then Forest/Backyard habitat (H’=2.45) and the least diversity found in Swampy Area (H’=1.329). Diversity of edible insects plays an important role in the creation of a sustainable global food economy as well as food security. The present study investigates to assess diversity of the edible insect consumed by ethnic people of Baksa, Assam.
