About this book

Highlights the different levels of biological organisation at which conservation is being addressed - the gene, the species and the community. The book investigates two major areas of concern: firstly, the conservation of plants of use to humans (crops, forest trees and other plants of forseeable use); secondly, the conservation of wild species in their ecological setting.
