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?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

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
