Micro-Organisms: The building blocks of BioTechnology - Biodiversity is life. Biodiversity is our life - Debananda S Ningthoujam * Prolegomenon Microorganisms are the most ancient life forms on our fragile, blue planet. They have had nearly 4 years of evolution and have experimented with myriads of possible biochemical reactions. Calicioids are rare and often red-listed, and are also bioindicators of long forest continuity. Consequently, they form an important biota in mountain cloud forests and deserve attention in the context of preserving biodiversity and developing conservation policies. One new species, Chaenothecopsis kilimanjaroensis, is described.

Covers the functional existence of microorganisms in nature, as well as the transfer of this knowledge for. BIODIVERSITY AND CONSERVATION Although India h as only per cent of the world’s land area, its share of the global species diversity is an impressive per cent. That is what makes our country one of the 12 mega diversity countries of the world. Nea species of plants and twice as many of animals have been recorded from India.

Plant conservation is increasingly recognised as an outstanding global priority, yet despite considerable efforts over the last few decades, the number of threatened species continues to rise.

The practice of plant conservation has for too long been a rather hit-or-miss mixture of methods.4/5(). biological diversity or biodiversity, the number of species in a given habitat. Scientists have variously estimated that there are from 3 to 30 million extant species, of which million have been classified, includinginsects, 41, vertebrates, andplants; the remainder are invertebrates, fungi, algae, and microorganisms.

The Conservation of Plant Biodiversity takes an evolutionary perspective to the conservation of plant biodiversity, stressing the need to explore both current and long-term issues. It highlights three conservation strategies: communities conserved in nature reserves; individual species conserved in nature reserves or botanic gardens; and domesticated plants, preserved mainly Reviews: 1.

While Colorado’s native grasslands may seem brown and lifeless in comparison to our rich green lawn, they support a far greater diversity of life. Plant Diversity (formerly Plant Diversity and Resources) is an international plant science journal that publishes substantial original research and.

Futhermore, microorganisms and their enzyme systems are responsible for the degradation of organic matter. Currently, wastewater treatment uses microbes to decompose organic matter in sewage. Microbes can also be used to create biofuels like biogas or bioethanol. Significance of Microbial Biodiversity Conservation.

Current loss of biodiversity places a premium on the task of recognising and formulating proposals on potential areas for biological conservation based on scientific criteria; among these tasks, identification of hotspots has a relevant role on conservation of biodiversity.

In this book, the authors discuss the application of different biogeographic methods to identify plant biodiversity .For this purpose, the book is published to address these issues and divided into five main sections: (1) protected area management, (2) fish and wildlife conservation, (3) biodiversity conservation, (4) ecotourism and recreation, and (5) local community : Mohd Nazip Suratman.Therefore, the questions of what role secondary forests (both cultivated and spontaneous) can play in nature conservation and what part of the biodiversity typical of natural and primeval forests in different geographical zones they can preserve become increasingly important lately.
