Ecorestoration and Biodiversity Conservation
G.P. MishraA. Gupta
Direct or indirect human activities are responsible for the degradation, transformation and damage to the ecosystems on this planet with negative impacts on biological diversity and peoples’ livelihoods. There is now a growing realisation that we will not be able to conserve the earth’s biological diversity through the protection of hotspots and critical areas alone, we must have knowledge and tools to actively manage our outstanding biodiversity, to protect what remains of our natural vegetation while rehabilitating the degraded ecosystems that need ecorestoration which is an intentional activity that initiates or accelerates the recovery of an ecosystem with respect to its structure and functions. We require the better understanding of effective actions and mechanisms to conserve and restore biological diversity at various levels and scales New approaches for restoring species, degraded environments, and ecological processes and functions will improve the efficiency of restoration efforts; provide for ecosystem management and biodiversity conservation. The book “Ecorestoration and Biodiversity Conservation” offers guidelines on what needs to be done to better manage the biodiversity values, so that this wonderful gift of nature can be preserved to appreciate for its beauty, goods and services it has to offer. This volume contains 19 invited chapters by eminent experts, some of them are contributed by an impressive array of high profile botanists of our country. These topics cover a wide range of aspects including microbial, forest, wetland, wildlife and applied ecology and indicate a lot of efforts put by contributors into exploring the ways so as to cover the various topics and examine the various linkages, quantification and practical applications of ecological research in ecorestoration and biodiversity conservation. Thus, the book will be equally useful to the scientists, researchers, environmentalists, teachers, students, administrators and policy makers. The volume is dedicated to the sacred memory of Late Professor S.B. Saksena the eminent mycologist of the country. ..more

Plant Diversity and Conservation
V.S. Ramachandran
Biological diversity is extremely valuable to humans from an economic standpoint for obtaining the raw materials including food, medicine, building materials and many other elements directly from the resources for maintaining our civilization. Every organism in every ecosystem possesses its own particular ecological function, acting as an integral component that influences the overall function and completeness of an ecosystem. Thus, a healthy ecosystem will be able to perform comprehensive and high quality ecological services. Taxonomists around the world have initiated global or local assessment of organisms. All the studies primarily involve species as a unit in the taxonomic hierarchy of classification. Moreover, species exists in nature as a visible unit that facilitate in determining various conservation strategies. The total number of species that currently exists on earth is generally considered as a synonymous with the term “biodiversity”. There is a growing consensus about rapid deletion of species and their habitats due to increasing in human population and human induced anti-environmental factors. But the current state of our knowledge about the extent of numerical strength of the species and loss of resources is incomplete. This situation has lead to the introduction of rapid assessment of global biological biodiversity that needs to be conserved. The present book “Plant Diversity and Conservation” will serve as an excellent reference material for students and scholars from different fields of botany. The book chapters includes the broad fields like Floristic diversity, Crop wild relatives, Arborescent flora, Weed flora, Riparian flora, Endemic plants, Ethno-medicinal plants, Chasmophytes, Biodiversity assessment, SEM studies, Tissue culture and Phytogeography. ..more

Biodiversity: Impact and Assessment
P. C. Trivedi
Biodiversity assumed prominence at the global level over the past one and half decade. This was in part due to the increasing recognition of the economic potential of biodiversity. Almost all cultures have in some way or form recognized the importance that nature, and its biological diversity has had upon them and the need to maintain it. Yet, power, greed and politics have affected the precarious balance. It is necessary that we conserve and preserve our biodiversity at all levels. The present book “Biodiversity— Impact and Assessment” includes 15 chapters on the topics which are contributing toward this goal. Chapters on Biodiversity—The concepts, measurements and status; Biodiversity of mangrove ecosystems of Orissa and its conservation; Biodiversity crisis management; Biodiversity of tropical deciduous forest of Amarkantak Biosphere reserve; Biodiversity granaries of Orissa; Diversity of grass flora of West Bengal provides detailed information on the topics. Articles on Trees and shrubs of Koch Bihar (W. Bengal); The Palms of West Bengal; Maize : advances in domestic and industrial uses; Edible pteridophytes in India provide sufficient information on the varied plants. Article on comparative tree community analysis of evergreen forests of Peninsular India; Ground flora diversity under man-made forests and Invasive alien plants—A threat to the biosphere have added value to the book.

Biodiversity Utilization & Conservation
A. ArunachalamK. Arunachalam
The rich biological diversity in the hotspot region of the Indian eastern Himalaya has been degraded due to various human activities (e.g. shifting agriculture, commercial logging) and also due to frequent landslides in the hills and floods in the valleys. In this region, most forested lands are owned by indigenous people, but lack authentic policies for land use and landholding. The resource management patterns vary among the tribal groups and have a tremendous bearing on the resource economics. Further, concerns have increased on the linkages between biological diversity and climate change. Therefore, assessment and monitoring biodiversity has been crucial, both in terms of dimensions and scale of the problem. Nevertheless, there has been a growing interest on the adaptive management of ecosystem based or the traditional ecological knowledge of the traditional ecological knowledge of the indigenous people and/or intergrating such knowledge into policy interventions. This synthesis volume is an attempt to consummate the ecological issues of biodiversity utilization and conservation with that of socio-cultural and economic dimensions that would help have a holistic view on natural resources management for biological conservation. In the present book 23 chapters covering broad aspects of biodiversity utilization, traditional land use systems and their conservation have been presented by various experts based on case studies carried out in different parts of the Himalyan region. Traditional bio-resource utilization and their conservation practices among different tribes inhabiting in northeast India have also been documented in this book apart from the status of biological diversity in different habitat conditions ranging from agroforest and cropland to wetlands and protected areas. This book will be of invaluable resource for students, teachers, researchers, development practitioners and conservation workers interested in understanding the linkages between commercialization of biodiversity, livelihoods and natural resources conservation. ..more

Biodiversity Conservation and Legal Aspects
A. K. KandyaAsha Gupta
Biodiversity is an irreplaceable resource therefore its extinction is always for ever. This is the reason, patenting of biodiversity of any region is being permitted nowadays under Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) to curb the genetic piracy as biodiversity originates at the molecular level and DNA, the only living molecule is the first level of biodiversity. It is the index of variety of nature and comprises every form of life, from the tiniest microbes to the mightiest beasts and gigantic trees. It exists at gene, organism and ecosystem levels. In the present book, various dimensions of biodiversity, viz. historical, ethno-medico-botanical, socio-economical, cultural, structural, legal, conservational and gender related etc. have been discussed by various experts of different fields. Status of biological diversity in forests, wetlands, croplands and specialized areas like the floating grasslands of Manipur, National Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries, agrestal and ruderal sites and other protected areas has been described at length. Thus, the book will be equally useful to specialists , teachers, students, planners , policy makers, administrators and commoners. It gives a good insight of several aspects of biodiversity exemplifying various natural phenomena of NE Indian regions. ..more

Biodiversity : Concepts and Conservation
B. B. HosettiS. Ramkrishna
Biodiversity is the backbone for Agriculture, Aquaculture, Animal Husbandry, Forestry and a host of other applied branches of Biology. Hence, it stands at the very foundation of development, especially in a rapidly changing world. Population growth has not declined to a desired level. Soil quality has already started deteriorating the world over. There is very little unplanted arable land left for further agricultural exploitation. Hence, new varieties of useful plants and new breeds of domesticated animals have to be constantly evolved for increased yield, desired lifetime, disease resistance etc. For example, by 2020, world demand for rice, wheat and maize is projected to increase by ~ 40% and livestock production by more than 60%. Such an effort to increase the quality and quantity of bioresources is possible only if we have adequate information and knowledge about their wild relatives, which form the genetic source for their further improvement through the biotechnological methods. The book Biodiversity : Concepts and Conservaton includes chapters on biodiversity and conservation strategies for various groups of organisms. The basic concept, what is biodiversity and its importance to humans is narrated in chapter one. Basic elements of hydrobiology and Ramsar wetlands are provided in chapter 2. The first Ramsar convention was held in the year 1972 in Ramsar city in Iran. In that convention it was discussed about the conservation of wetlands for the protection of aquatic birds. This aspect was contributed by Prof. Ramakrishna from Bangalore University, Bangalore. Chapter 3 deals with the conservation strategies for the coastal migratory wetland birds of Karwar district, Karnataka. This chapter is contributed by Prof. V.N. Naik and Roshan T. from Post Graduate Centre of Karnatak University, Dharwad. The butterfly and plant diversity of Daroji wildlife sanctuary, which is located in the arid scrub jungles of Ballary district is described in chapter 4. Prof. Muniswamy David and his team from Karnatka University have studied the fish abundance with reference to Indian perspective (chapter 5). Ischthyofauna of freshwater ponds of Shimoga area are studied by Prof. Venkateshwarlu and Prashant Kumar (Chapter 6). Prof. Usha Anandi and Mr. Sharat have jointly reported the abundance of ornamental fishes in the Adda Hole of Western Ghats in chapter 7. Awareness and conservation strategies for snakes of Midwestern Ghats are provided by Dr. Jagadish in the last chapter No. 8. This book with different aspects of biodiversity will help to decipher the knowledge and conservation of biological diversity in India.  ..more
