Conservation biology refers to the study of the conservation of nature and the preservation of biodiversity on the Earth. Its goal is to safeguard species, their habitats and ecosystems from extinction, and protect biotic interactions from erosion. Conservation biology aims to understand the origins and effects of extinction catastrophe as well as the deterioration of Earth's biodiversity. It involves creating systems of protected areas to conserve indigenous species and natural ecosystems. Conservation biology focuses on the processes affecting the loss, maintenance and restoration of biodiversity. It also studies the negative effect which the loss of biodiversity has on the capacity of humans to sustain their well-being. This book unfolds a detailed explanation of the various fundamentals of conservation biology. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make it an invaluable source of knowledge.
