The Himalaya have the Natural Wealth of Plants many still unknown and many endangered. Countries rich in Biodiversity need to save it from destruction. In India many Institutions involved in conservation and utilization of biodiversity come under the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MOEF), Ministry of Agriculture, and Ministry of Science and Technology. They are concerned with conservation of biosphere reserve, National Park, wildlife, sanctuaries, and field gene Banks etc. India is basically an Agricultural country. Top priority be given on conservation and sustainable utilization of biodiversity in developmental planning. For the conservation of Genetic materials, seeds, Pollen grains, vegetative propagating parts, Plant tissues or genomes of plant Cells are collected; this depends on Nature of crops, case to handle, longevity, expertise, methodologies available, space required, problems of genetic Erosion of Stock and expenses. Techniques have been developed to culture the plant cell, Tissue and organs, in vitro grown cultures. Storage of in vitro grown culture has many advantages over the others such as requirement of less space, cheap maintenance cost, high propagation potential, least problem of genetic erosion of stock and maintenance of Pathogen free stock. Biodiversity conservation and Management contains selected papers by eminent professors, academicians, researchers and scientists of different Parts of India and abroad pertaining to a variety of issues and dimensions of biodiversity conversation and management. It is expected that this book will profusely assist the policymakers, researchers, conservation and management personnel and General readers for Policy implications. Contents, Preface 1.

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Dez 2009, 2009. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 235x155x27 mm. Neuware - This book brings together a selection of 21 original studies submitted to Biodiversity and Conservation that address aspects of management for the conservation of biodiversity. The topics addressed include: lessons from the Northern spotted owl saga, hidden costs of implementing the EU Habitats Directive, the importance of recently created agricultural wetlands, cutting reeds to create a sustainable habitat, impacts and control of feral cats, selecting areas to complement existing reserve systems, beneficial effects of rabbit warrens, effects of fences on large predator ranges, spatial structure of critical habitats and connectivity, effects of an agro-pasture landscape on biodiversity, community involvement, reserve selection in forests, germ-plasm interventions in agroforestry systems, shade coffee plantations and the protection of tree diversity, reserves and the reduction of deforestation rates in dry tropical forests, reconciling forest conservation actions with usage by and needs of local peoples, weed invasion in understory plant communities in tropical lowland forests, problems of patch area and connectivity in plant conservation, the need not to focus just on hot-spots, and partitioning conservation across elevations. The organisms and communities considered embrace birds, coral reefs, various large and small mammals, reptiles, forest trees, and dune and boreal semi-natural grassland plants. The contributions are taken from situations being confronted in regions including the Andaman Islands, Brazil, Canary Islands, the Caribbean, Finland, Germany, Guinea, India, Italy, Mexico, Myanmar, Poland, South Africa, Spain, and the USA. Collectively, the studies presented here provide a snap-shot of the types of management actions being undertaken for conservation and their efficacy. This makes the volume especially valuable for use in conservation biology courses. Reprinted from Biodiversity and Conservation, volume 18, No 4 (2009) 352 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9789048138449
