a: genetic diversity ~
b: diversity within a language


"There are several biodiversity analogies relevant to technology: genetic diversity is like diversity within a language (e.g., indentation and commenting styles), species diversity is like differences among languages (e.g., strongly versus weakly typed), and ecological system diversity is like the degree of difference among a system of languages (e.g., interpreted versus compiled, open source versus commercial)"
