Evaluation of the genetic diversity and population structure of plant germplasm enhances breeding and management practices to develop improved varieties. Various genetic tools have been successfully used to study the genetic diversity of plant species, including morphological, cytological, biochemical, and molecular markers. This book discusses the fundamental advances . These studies have revealed that some plant species including bamboos and rattans harbor higher genetic diversity in protected areas than in non-protected areas or at peripheral regions of the protected areas –. However, the effectiveness of protected areas in conserving medicinal plants remains unknown.
The endemic plant species with extremely narrow geographical range (genetic drift and inbreeding effects. For these species, we tested if intraspecific genetic diversity can be applied to identify conservation priorities. The biological model was Mammillaria albiflora—a Mexican cactus that. Target 5: At least 75 per cent of the most important areas for plant diversity of each ecological region protected with effective management in place for conserving plants and their genetic diversity. Target 6: At least 75 per cent of production lands in each sector managed sustainably, consistent with the conservation of plant diversity.
Introduction. Genetic diversity is the foundation for all biological diversity; the persistence and evolutionary potential of species rely on it for adaptation to natural and human-induced selective pressures (Allendorf et al. ).Conservation genetics research indicates links between variation at the DNA level (genetic variation) of species and biological productivity and diversity (Reusch. Conservation Genetics promotes the conservation of biodiversity by providing a forum for data and ideas, aiding the further development of this area of study. Contributions include work from the disciplines of population genetics, molecular ecology, molecular biology, evolutionary biology, systematics, forensics, and others.

About this book.

Conservation in protected areas has focused on preserving biodiversity of ecosystems and species, whereas conserving the genetic diversity contained within species has historically often been ignored.
This book is about the conservation of genetic diversity of wild plants in situ in their natural surroundings, primarily in existing protected areas but also outside conventional protected by: Conserving plant genetic diversity in protected areas: population management of crop wild relatives.
This book comprises 7 chapters discussing the genetic diversity conservation in protected areas and the management of wild by: Below is a selection of useful books that provide scientific and background information on assessment and conservation actions targeting biodiversity conservation.

The book is designed to provide a review on the methods and current status of conservation of the tropical plant species. It will also provide the information on the richness of the tropical plant.
While acknowledging that many wild genetic resources species may be found in existing protected areas, the International Board for Plant Genetic Resources (a) has noted several deficiencies that could impair their utility for conserving genetic resources.
(1) Most protected areas lack adequate inventories of species or genotypes. “Safeguarding genetic diversity” may refer to in situ protection (e.g., via well-managed protected areas) or ex situ protection (e.g., seed, sperm, eggs, tissue, or living organisms taken from the wild and kept in large, well-documented, managed populations) of a sufficient, representative amount of genetic diversity from a species.
"Providing a synthesis of new methodologies, this book presents a practical set of management guidelines that can be used for the conservation of plant genetic diversity of crop wild relatives both inside and outside of protected areas. Genetic diversity is of fundamental importance in the continuity of a species as it provides the necessary adaptation to the prevailing biotic and abiotic environmental conditions, and enables change in the genetic composition to cope with changes in the environment.
Genetic Diversity in Plants presents chapters revealing the magnitude of genetic variation existing in plant. An understanding of the effects of population sampling on the conservation of genetic diversity is also needed to guide policy.
The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) provides an international policy framework for the conservation of plant genetic diversity, which applies particularly to its uses in crop breeding and to its human utility value (e.g.
for crop improvement; Castañeda. The conservation of wild relatives of crop plants, animals or cultures of microorganisms provides breeders and genetic engineers with a ready source of genetic material.
