“ This universe is created by the supreme power meant for the benefit of all his creations. Individual species must, therefore, learn to enjoy its benefits by being a part of the system in close relation with other species. Let not one species encroach upon other’s rights”. – Isopanishad
Biodiversity or biological diversity refers to the variety and variability of organisms and ecosystems. The depletion of biological diversity is considered to be the most significant environmental issue in the contemporary world. Biodiversity is a dynamic resource influenced by both natural as well as social systems. Man is always benefited directly or indirectly by nature and its biodiversity. In the last few decades population growth has increased manifold and consequently, demand for food and dwelling space has also increased.
It has aggravated the rate of exploitation of natural resources and land use practices leading to the destruction of the habitat of species and loss of biodiversity. It has ultimately created the ecological imbalances in different parts of the world. Man depends on the vast biodiversity for his food, shelters, medicines, recreations etc.
Over exploitation of natural resources, along with political and policy issues have led to the loss of our valuable biodiversity at an alarming rate.
The seminar therefore aims to focus, analyze and to find out some possible measures to conserve the biodiversity. It is expected that the discussions at different technical sessions will put forward vital suggestions and solution that will prove useful to combat the challenges to biodiversity.
