    The topics of interest include but are not restricted only to sustainable development of various ecosystems and conservation of hotspots, traditional methods and role of local people, threatened and endangered species, global climate change and effect on biodiversity, invasive species, impact of various activities on biodiversity, biodiversity.   Recent years have witnessed a surge of interest in the application of the principles of genetics to conservation and the sustainable management of fish resources. The realisation of the genetic basis of many fisheries management problems is growing at a time when the world catch from fisheries is approaching the maximum sustainable level and.

    Globally, freshwater fishes are declining at an alarming rate. Despite much evidence of catastrophic declines, few Australian species are listed as threatened under national legislation. We aim to help redress this by identifying the Australian freshwater fishes that are in the most immediate risk of extinction. For 22 freshwater fishes (identified as highly threatened by experts), we used. conflict resolution. If it is recognized that conservation of biodiversity is a foundation for sustainable forestry, artificial conflicts between conserving biodiversity and maintaining wood production disappear (Carey b). Our goal in this paper is to present a summary of theory and .

    ABC (Agricultural Biodiversity Conservation) refers to the basic, most fundamental aspect of food production systems, the seeds and genetics that allow our crops to grow well in their local environment. By selecting locally adapted genetics, we develop crop varieties that do not require expensive and harmful inputs and grow more easily in our.   Coastal communities can benefit from aquaculture in restored habitats such as mangroves, according to the second installment of the World Economic Forum’s New Nature Economy Report series.

Recent years have witnessed a surge of interest in the application of the principles of genetics to conservation and the sustainable management of fish resources. The realisation of the genetic basis of many fisheries management problems is growing at a time when the world catch from fisheries is approaching the maximum sustainable level and all levels of biodiversity are threatened.

Abstract. The aim of conservation of biodiversity and genetic resources is to secure existing genetic biodiversity while allowing evolution and to build a wide base of genetic resources that meet demands of present and future uses not only for human kind but also for all livings forms on earth.

Livestock production is one of the major causes of the world's most pressing environmental problems, including climate change, land degradation, pollution, and loss of biodiversity.

Reducing our meat consumption and making wise choices can encourage more sustainable livestock management. His research focused on the behavioral ecology and conservation of fishes in lakes, streams, coastal oceans, and coral reefs.

In addition to contributing to this textbook, Helfman in published a highly acclaimed reference and text, Fish Conservation: A Guide to Understanding and Restoring Global Aquatic Biodiversity and Fishery Resources.

A biodiversity hotspot is a conservation concept developed by Norman Myers in Hotspots are geographical areas that contain high numbers of endemic species. The purpose of the concept was to identify important locations on the planet for conservation efforts, a kind of conservation triage.

Conservation Genetics. Inthe Molecular Genetics Department of Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium began a biodiversity survey. The department decided to focus on the island of Madagascar, one of the world's greatest biodiversity hotspots, with endangered plants and animals that exist nowhere else on earth.

Conservation biology is the management of nature and of Earth's biodiversity with the aim of protecting species, their habitats, and ecosystems from excessive rates of extinction and the erosion of biotic interactions.

It is an interdisciplinary subject drawing on natural and social sciences, and the practice of natural resource management.: The conservation ethic is based on the findings. The Rivers and Lochs Institute supports freshwater biodiversity management through research, training and education. Established in by Professor Eric Verspoor, the Institute specialises in molecular genetics research to aid in the conservation and management of all biodiversity in rivers and lochs, including fish stocks.

and development actions. The overall objective is to increase the sustainable use of biodiversity in improving people’s well-being and food and nutrition security.

The series’ scope is all aspects of agricultural biodiversity, ranging from conservation biology of genetic resources through social sciences to policy and legal aspects. We evaluate the impact of a fisheries management program centered on the definition of Fish Conservation Zones on biodiversity, measured as the number of species caught in the last 12 months.

Data comes from a set of 32 villages in central Lao PDR, of which half participated in the program, and the remaining are a set of matched control villages.

The estimated causal effects are .Genes control the production of substances that we use in medicine and food and even as energy sources. Preserving genetic diversity increases the likelihood that new substances can be found among wild populations, and that the supplies of useful substances we already have can be maintained.agricultural biodiversity, conservation for sustainable utilization and development.

These principles have been enshrined in the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Global Plan of Action of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The emphasis is now to understand the distribution and extent of genetic.
