    The more normative aspects of Conservation Biology is another key interest, and I consider the question: "why conserve nature" to be far from trivial. In particular, I am interested in exploring and possibly bridging the typical conceptual gap in how "good nature" is appreciated among landowners, conservationists and the broader population. Evaluation of exotic germplasm for crop improvement. Pp. 95– in Proceedings of the International Symposium on South East Asian Plant genetic Resources, K. L. Mehra and s. G. P.

    Sustainable agriculture is farming in sustainable ways, which means meeting society's present food and textile needs, without compromising the ability for current or future generations to meet their needs. It can be based on an understanding of ecosystem are many methods to increase the sustainability of agriculture. When developing agriculture within sustainable food systems. Genetic diversity is required for populations to evolve in response to environmental changes, such as climate change and new or altered diseases. Genetic diversity is one of three levels of biological diversity recognized by the IUCN as deserving conservation. The major factor involved in loss of genetic diversity is small population size.

    Abstract. Environmental Effects of Conservation Practices on Grazing Lands, Special Reference Briefs U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Library. This bibliography is one in a multi-volume set developed by the Water Quality Information Center at the National Agricultural Library in support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Conservation Effects Assessment. Precision agriculture. Precision farming or precision agriculture is an agricultural concept relying on the existence of in-field variability. It requires the use of new technologies, such as global positioning (GPS), sensors, satellites or aerial images, and information management tools .

Tropical rain forests of South-east Asia in general, and that of the Indo-Malayan region in particular, are known to endow a tremendous variety of plant genetic resources. These include species of valuable and marketable timber species, medicinal plants, and fruit tree species.

Many fruits originated from the Malaysian forest. Proceedings of a National Workshop on Conservation and Utilization of Plant Genetic Resources, OctoberBeijing, China. This book, the first of its kind in the Indian context, will be found useful by researchers/users and curators engaged in plant genetic resources activities, by the teachers and post-graduate students in traditional and State Universities and equally so, by the policy-makers and conservationists advocating national concern on plant genetic conservation and management.

Biodiversity and Conservation is an international journal that publishes articles on all aspects of biological diversity-its description, analysis and conservation, and its controlled rational use by humankind.
