While scientific and socio-political communities around the world are aware of the natural and economic importance of biodiversity, we are faced with an ever-increasing number of plant species under threat of extinction. Conservation is thus a vital part of the plant scientist's work, in the field, in botanic gardens and in universities.
This colour atlas has been conceived to integrate the dual botanical themes of plant propagation and conservation. Topics of this title range from the history and likely future of conservation and the effects of human activity on plant diversity, to the practical techniques of collection, preservation, germination, propagation and management of plant populations in the laboratory and in the field. The text is referenced and is illustrated throughout by colour photos and photomicrographs of the highest quality.
This handsomely produced volume reviews a range of techniques applicable to Species Recovery Programmes and other conservation strategies...a convenient academic textbook both for conservation biologists and for graduate or advanced undergraduate students. Plant Talk
