Biodiversity Conservation

K C Sharma (Author) P.C. Trivedi (Author)
Synopsis Biodiversity is the variety of all the genes, species and ecosystems which are found on our planet. It provides humanity with the cornucopia of goods and services, from food, energy and materials to the genes which protect our crops and cure our diseases. The loss of the earth’s biological diversity is one of the most pressing environmental and development issues. Sustainability highlights the idea that the current use of natural resources should not diminish the options of future generations, and maintaining biodiversity is clearly one of the requirements for meeting this goal. The present book Biodiversity Conservation incorporates articles on plant biodiversity conservation, mangrove ecosystem, floral diversity of the Indian desert, forest resources, joint forest management and diversity in vertebrate wildlife in India. This volume contains chapters covering holistic information on biodiversity and its conservation with special reference to the Indian scenario. Chapters on medicinal plant conservation and intellectual property rights and patenting of bioresources have added to the value of the book. A comprehensive account of the biodiversity of vascular plants and ferns is given to throw light on the importance of preservation of vanishing species from this planet. This book will definitely serve as an excellent reference material and practical guide for teachers, research workers, students and environmentalists.
