I've found conflicting references on which biomes are the most biodiverse ones.

Also, which are the measures of biodiversity? Average number of different species per volume?

You should give these references so that people can see what you are talking about. Related to the second part of your question, you should have a look at the great book by Anne Magurran, Measuring biodiversity:amazon.com/Measuring-Biological-Diversity-Anne-Magurran/dp/… –  Timothée Poisot May 27 '13 at 14:35
