    Photograph by Biodiversity book Lanting. This page provides an overview on how the attempts to prevent biodiversity loss is progressing. Popular activities such as gardeningfishkeeping and specimen collecting strongly depend on biodiversity. Biodiversity loss therefore threatens the provision of goods and services provided by ecosystems. This new proposal avoids the pitfalls of the ones that prevail in the promotion of biodiversity.

If a wheat crop is destroyed by a pest we may plant a hardier variety of wheat the next year, relying on intraspecific diversity. ISBN: Description Reviews An essential, up-to-date look at the critical interactions between biological diversity and climate change that will serve as an immediate call to action The physical and biological impacts of climate change are dramatic and broad-ranging. Last updated Wednesday, April 06, The relationships between the original natural areas of these often exotic animals and plants and commercial collectors, suppliers, breeders, propagators and those who promote their understanding and enjoyment are complex and poorly understood.
