Description

Existence of huge diversity of life forms is key feature of the blue planet “Earth.” All the life forms ranging from bacteria to plants or animals play important roles on the only celestial body known to harbour life in the universe. These life forms are in dynamic relationship with one another. Biodiversity is thus a key feature of the planet earth and important for sustaining the ecosystems on it. Biodiversity is also exploited for various purposes by humans and helps in improving the quality of our lives. An ecosystem or habitat with high biodiversity is rich on biological wealth and is more important in terms of economy and ecological inputs. Abundant biodiversity is also an indicator of high levels of natural resources and balance of physicochemical and biological components. But there is a harsh reality which we are facing at present. The biodiversity loss is at its highest rate since the arrival of Homo sapiens on the blue planet. It is also believed that at present we are going through the sixth mass extinction of species on earth. The unfortunate part is that this mass extinction is scripted by humans. A species itself is resulting in wipeout of many other life forms in the name of development and prosperity unknowing to the fact that it will result in unforeseen problems and lead to depletion of resources and endangering all life forms. Development in the present form is unsustainable and harmful for the life and soul of the planet.
“Biodiversity Conservation and Environmental Sustainability” is a comprehensive and insightful book that delves into the intricate web of life on Earth and the pressing need to safeguard it for the well-being of current and future generations. The presented book consists of chapters written by eminent researchers from different geographical areas and working with different specialties on biodiversity conservation.
