The system depends on natural or managed revegetation to restore fertility to the ground when it can no longer support crop production. Conserving Biodiversity presents an agenda for research that can. 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.

  It covers a wide range of issues such as biodiversity, ecosystem services and valuation in the context of diverse ecosystems such as tropical forests, marine areas, wetlands and agricultural landscapes, non-timber forest products, incentives and institutions, payments for ecosystem services, governance, intellectual property rights and the. The term biodiversity was coined as a contraction of biological diversity by E.O. Wilson in Biodiversity may be defined as the variety and variability of living organisms and the ecological complexes in which they exist. In other words, biodiversity is the occurrence of different types of ecosystems, different species of organisms with the whole [ ].

To make the best use of agricultural biodiversity, and for it to fulfill our needs, a combination of on-farm, in situ and ex situ conservation approaches are required. On-farm conservation – is de facto conservation considering that 60%–80% of farmers use seed from informal sources.

Full-text available. Protecting the world’s agricultural biodiversity resources in the places where it continues to evolve is both an outcome in itself and a crucial resource for the future. Unfortunately, the diversity of local crops and their wild relatives is being lost at an alarming pace as a result of changing markets, farming practices, environmental.

Ex situ conservation is the widely used method to conserve millet genetic resources. Globally >29, accessions of proso millet, >8, accessions each of barnyard and kodo millets, and >3, accessions of little millet have been assembled and conserved (Fig.

).The major genebanks conserving proso, barnyard, kodo, and little millets are presented in Table Within the framework of the project Strengthening the Scientific Basis of In Situ Conservation of Agricultural Conserving agricultural biodiversity in situ book (Jarvis and Hodgkin, ) and in line with the CBD’s Programme of Work on Agricultural Biodiversity, Bioversity International worked with partner organizations from 8 countries and 27 crops to ensure the maintenance of.

Ex Situ Plant Conservation, edited by Edward O. Guerrant Jr., Kayri Havens, and Mike Maunder, is the first book to address integrated plant conservation strategies and to examine the scientific, technical, and strategic bases of the ex situ approach. The book examines where and how ex situ investment can best support in situ conservation.

In Situ Conservation of Genetic Resources A species or a population sample of a particular part of its genetic variation can be maintained through in situ or ex situ conservation.

In situ conservation is the preservation of species and populations of living organisms. Agricultural sectors are major users of biodiversity but also has the potential to contribute to the protection of biodiversity.

The agricultural sectors together manage the largest terrestrial, freshwater and marine areas on Earth. If managed sustainably, agricultural sectors File Size: 2MB.

In-situ conservation means "on-site conservation".It is the process of protecting an endangered plant or animal species in its natural habitat, either by protecting or cleaning up the habitat itself, or by defending the species from predator s. Increasingly, this term is also being applied to the conservation of agricultural biodiversity in agroecosystem s by farmers, especially those using.

Ex situ conservation literally means, "off-site conservation".It is the process of protecting an endangered species, variety or breed, of plant or animal outside its natural habitat; for example, by removing part of the population from a threatened habitat and placing it in a new location, which may be a wild area or within the care of humans.
