Conservation of biodiversity Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Conservation of biodiversity -: Presented by :- Monika K Tambakhe Food Technology Email id: University Department of Chemical Technology , Sant Gadge baba Amravati University Amravati. Maharashtra INDIA 444602
  • 2. Introduction : “Biodiversity encompasses the whole variety of life, it is all living things ,from the tiny garden to the giant redwood tree. You will find biodiversity everywhere, in window boxes and wild woods, roadsides and rain forests, snow field and sea shor”.
  • 3. Types of biodiversity : 1. Genetic Diversity - Diversity within species 2. Species Diversity – Diversity between species 3. Ecosystem Diversity - Diversity within specific region or political entity.
  • 4. Loss of biodiversity : Europe covers only 7% of the Earths land surface but contains a large biodiversity due to natural fragmentation by rivers, mountains, seas, the influences of glaciation, etc. The pressures on European biodiversity emanate from all sectors of society, with agriculture, forestry and transport being particularly responsible for habitat loss and fragmentation.
  • 5. Causes for loss of biodiversity : 1. Human population growth 2. Habitat destruction 3. Pollution 4. Agriculture 5. Global warming
  • 6. Conservation of biodiversity : 1.Community Based Conservation 2.Modern methods of Conservation
  • 7. Ecological Concepts, Principles and Application to Conservation : The report on Ecological Concepts, Principles and Application to Conservation was prepared under the direction of Biodiversity BC's Technical Subcommittee, whose members include representatives of conservation organizations and the B.C. government. There is general agreement among experts that prevention is the key to the conservation of biodiversity.
  • 8. Applying Ecological Concepts and Principles in Biodiversity Conservation • Represent all native ecosystem types in a system of protected areas. • Retain large contiguous or connected areas that sustain natural ecological processes. • Maintain or emulate natural ecological processes. • Manage for adaptability in response to environmental change.
  • 9. Applying Ecological Concepts and Principles in Biodiversity Conservation • Minimize the introduction and spread of invasive alien species • Maintain viable populations of all native species in natural patterns of abundance and distribution. • Preserve rare landscape elements, critical habitats and features, and associated species.
  • 10. Conclusion The ecological concepts and principles, and their application to conserve biodiversity described in this document are intended to provide a science-based starting point for the action on biodiversity conservation.
