About this book

Language: English

Biodiversity, the variety of genes, species, and ecosystems that constitute life on Earth and the intricate interrelations of living creatures and the environment that evolved along with time, is the basis of human development and sustenance, as it ensures the sustainability of life support systems – air, water, and food, besides the scope for future values, which remains unknown for many species. Moreover, the cultural diversity of India is also closely linked with the rich natural capital of the country. This book provides perspectives on the biodiversity of India through 95 research papers, presented under themes such as Agro-biodiversity and Food Security, Biodiversity; Culture and Education; Biodiversity, Development and Climate change; Biodiversity Documentation and Taxonomy; and Medicinal Plant Conservation and Utilisation. This is will be a useful reference book on the status and trends of biodiversity and taxonomy in India and provides the latest scientific knowledge on the biodiversity of India.
