Biodiversity Richness of Kerala, organized into eight chapters, explores the richness of biodiversity ranging from species diversity, ecosystem diversity and genetic diversity in terrestrial, inland and marine ecosystems of Kerala. It gives an insight into various international, national and state legislations relating to conservation and outlines the approaches adopted to conserve Kerala's natural landscape and endangered species. For realizing the fair and equitable sharing of beneﬁts, the key element is to estimate the contribution that the bio-resources have made to the creation of the beneﬁts. In this book, the authors have attempted to assess the bio-resources with economic potential in Kerala and their market value, which is important in the perspective of access and beneﬁt sharing. The authors hope that this publication will provide a benchmark to policy makers in developing a strategy for planning the activities of all those sectors that can have a positive or negative impact on biodiversity. The publication will also beneﬁt scientists, conservationists and researchers in the ﬁeld.
