This Book on ‘Biodiversity Distribution and Conservation’ is meant for a vast range of readers including Environmentalists, Policy makers, Stakeholders, Academicians, Research scholars, and students of various streams like Geography, Forestry, Environmental science, Botany, Zoology, Medicinal plants, Agricultural Science and many more. This book is a mosaic which is composed of inputs from people of various streams around the world. The contributors belong to Nepal, Pakistan and various states of India.
The articles are scientific or legal, and some are accounts of personal experiences and beliefs about the subject matter. The articles along with the data on distribution of Biodiversity also bring out the multidimensional challenges that biodiversity conservation poses, not only to policy-makers and to scientists, but also to all of us. The rationale is to explore the extent of the problem and an attempt to put forward some feasible solutions which can help the policy makers to frame biodiversity conservation strategy. The book provides an important reality check on the way traditional and indigenous knowledge on biodiversity is being increasingly widely recognized–in the variety of social, cultural, economic and environmental contexts through the case studies treated in the book.
This volume has one principal message of creating awareness about the issue. Respect for biological diversity implies respect for human diversity. Indeed, both elements are fundamental to stability and durable peace on earth. It is hoped that book will augment the knowledge of the subject ‘Biodiversity Distribution and Conservation’ of the readers and will facilitate the noble cause ‘Biodiversity conservation’.
