Overview

A practical guide that covers both in situ and ex situ techniques for plant diversity conservation

The conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources is of increasing importance globally. Plant Conservation Genetics addresses this issue by providing an extensive overview of this emerging area of science, exploring various practical strategies and the latest technology for conservation of plant biodiversity. Leading specialists and experts discuss topics ranging from the science’s foundations through every aspect of plant conservation genetics. This informative text includes several ex situ (outside of natural habitat) and in situ (inside of natural habitat) techniques for plant conservation useful for researchers, educators, and students.

Plant Conservation Genetics first reviews the importance, opportunities, and numerous advantages of this type of conservation, then explores various effective ex situ (for specific species) and in situ (for certain species on up to full ecosystems and habitats) techniques for conservation. Essential detailed information is presented on collection strategies, botanic gardens, DNA banks, biodiversity management, and genetic resources in seedbanks. Each specialist reveals his or her personal experience of working in the field, allowing direct experience to illustrate and provide expert perspective on the key issues of plant conservation. The book is carefully referenced and includes tables and figures to enhance clarity of data.

Plant Conservation Genetics topics include:

  • strategies for plant conservation
  • opportunities for application of plant conservation genetics
  • botanic garden conservation
  • DNA extraction and storage
  • field genebanks
  • in vitro techniques
  • cryopreservation
  • germplasm collection and management
  • collecting missions
  • genetic and biological property rights and benefit-sharing
  • database and sample management for genebank collections
  • monitoring and maintaining ecosystems in in situ conservation
  • habitat fragmentation
  • molecular analysis of plant genetic resources
  • molecular marker analysis
  • nuclear, mitochondrial, and chloroplast genome analysis
  • genomics in the management of plant biodiversity
Plant Conservation Genetics is a comprehensive desktop resource perfect for botanists, plant scientists, agricultural scientists, environmentalists, gardeners, and educators and students.
