About this book

Faced with an alarming rate of loss of biodiversity, one emerging strategy for protecting targeted species is the use of botanic gardens and zoos. This is the first book to address integrated plant conservation strategies and to examine the scientific, technical and strategic bases of the ex situ approach. It outlines the role, value and limits of ex situ conservation.

This volume adds much needed detail and guidance to the field of plant conservation and restoration.--Tracey Etwell"Natural Areas Journal" (01/02/2007)
