Abstract - This article discusses the in vitro tools and methods used to conserve the genetic diversity of rare and threatened plant species from around the Size: 54KB. 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 in germplasm Reviews: 1.

The present chapter reviews the current status of endemic and threatened plant species in India, followed by the various conservation strategies which are being or which can be employed for the conservation of such species in India along with the future perspectives in this field.

This guide offers a systematic approach to a wide variety of published material in the Library of Congress on endangered and/or threatened species of animals and plants as well as related conservation efforts. Anyone who has read "The Orchid Thief" will understand the seductive power of rare plants.

In the book, the lead character is obsessed with finding the elusive ghost orchid that's native to the Everglades. Not all native plants are as endangered as the ghost orchid, though Florida does have more endangered plants than any state except California.

Recovering Australian Threatened Species showcases successful conservation stories and identifies approaches and implementation methods that have been most effective in recovering threatened species.

NOAA Fisheries is responsible for the protection, conservation, and recovery of endangered and threatened marine and anadromous species under the Endangered Species Act. The ESA aims to conserve these species and the ecosystems they depend on. To implement the ESA, we work with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other federal, tribal, state, and local agencies, as well.

The aim of this book is to provide readers with a broad understanding of the concept and methodologies of in situ conservation for target plant species. The book is based upon a global survey, undertaken by the first author, of existing guidelines, methodologies, case studies and other relevant literature on the in situ conservation of plant species, as well as current activities in this area.

In all, I found 60 threatened medicinal plant species during the study period, of which 54 species occurred in the sampling plots. Twenty‐two percent of threatened medicinal plant species were critically endangered, 16% were endangered, and 27% were vulnerable.
