Synopsis Biodiversity includes the diversity of plants, animals and microbes and their habitats. Genetic diversity, species diversity and ecosystem diversity together give rise to biodiversity, which sustains life on earth through energy flow and food chain. This book provides information on various aspects of biodiversity like overview of Indian and global biodiversity, its organization, conservation, sources, reasons for conservation, obstacles in conservation and causes and effects of biodiversity loss. In addition, the book also deals with important topics like means to conserve biodiversity, MAB programme, institutes conserving crop biodiversity, centers of crop diversity, gene pool concepts, biodiversity in relation to intellectual property rights and plant breeder’s rights, patenting, convention on biological diversity (CBD), farmers’ rights on genetic resources, remote sensing technology in characterizing biodiversity and sustainable management of biodiversity. It also contains useful information on plant biodiversity of North East India. The treatise would be of great interest to a large group of readers – undergraduate and postgraduate students of ecology, biology, genetics and biotechnology, environmentalists, research workers, teachers and candidates appearing at various competitive examinations like NET, ARS and Civil Services Examinations.
