About this book

This edited book deals with plant genetic resources and their status, availability, and ecological niche in natural habitat. Usage and conservation practices followed by various tribal communities and their rationale are also discussed in the book. The book explores the application of biological tools to conserve plant species and optimization protocols for the conservation and elicitation of secondary metabolites and other value-added products. The book is organized into sub-themes covering:
(i) Ecological status of plant genetic resources
(ii) Traditional ethnobotanical knowledge and conservation practices
(iii) Ex-situ conservation practices and bioprospecting

Globally, plant genetic resources are deeply rooted in culture and economy. Since the early 1990s, the changing socio-economic situation has increasingly put pressure on plant genetic resources, in some cases leading to a severe loss of their diversity. For this reason, the most vulnerable areas at risk of genetic erosion have been demarcated and protected by forest laws and regulations. Therefore, this book brings to light the opinions of leading experts in the area of ecology, conservation biodiversity, ethnobotany, and bioprospecting of plant genetic resources.

The book is for use by graduate and advanced undergraduate students and researchers in plant physiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and agriculture. Additionally, it is extremely useful as a general reference for the conservation of flora and large-scale cultivation.
