Description


Biodiversity conservation refers to the protection, upliftment and management of biodiversity for ensuring sustainable benefits for the current and future generations. Biodiversity faces multiple threats at the global level such as pollution, urbanization, industrialization, depletion, erosion and increasing population. The loss of biodiversity severely affects the food chains of an ecosystem. There are three primary objectives of biodiversity conservation. These include protection and preservation of species diversity; sustainable utilization of species and resources; and prevention and restoration of ecological processes and life support systems. In-situ conservation and ex-situ conservation are the two methods of preserving biodiversity. The former involves the management and conservation of species in their natural habitats. Biosphere reserves, national parks, and wildlife sanctuaries are some protected areas for in-situ conservation. The conservation of endangered species in artificial ecosystems such as zoos, botanical gardens and gene banks is referred to as ex-situ conservation. The topics included in this book on conserving biodiversity are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. The readers would gain knowledge that would broaden their perspective about this topic.
