      Ex Situ Plant Conservation, edited by Edward O. Guerrant Jr., Kayri Havens, and Mike Maunder, is the first book to address integrated plant conservation strategies and to examine the scientific, technical, and strategic bases of the ex situ approach. The book examines where and how ex situ investment can best support in situ conservation. This book examines how and where ex situ investment can best support in situ conservation. It outlines the role, value, and limits of ex situ conservation as well as updates the best management practices for the field. It is an invaluable resource for plant conservation practitioners at botanic gardens, zoos, and other conservation organizations, as well as for students and researchers Cited by:

Off-site conservation is called as ex-situ conservation, which deals with conservation of an endangered species outside its natural habitat. In this method genetic information of cultivated and wild plant species is preserved in the form of in vitro cultures and seeds.

No book of this nature has been published in which ex situ genetic resources It will also be valuable for postgraduate courses in plant genetics, conservation, and cell biology. It provides invaluable information for professional plant conservationists.4/5(1).

Ex situ conservation is the widely used method to conserve millet genetic resources. Globally >29, accessions of proso millet, >8, accessions each of barnyard and kodo millets, and >3, accessions of little millet have been assembled and conserved (Fig.

).The major genebanks conserving proso, barnyard, kodo, and little millets are presented in Table   This book reviews the effective role of ex situ collections and assesses the values and limitations of ex situ plant conservation techniques.

The vast majority of ex situ samples, even those intended for conservation, have been collected on an ad hoc basis because they may be needed in the future for some unspecified purpose by an unspecified Author: Center For Plant Conservation.

The book examines where and how ex situ investment can best support in situ conservation.5/5(1). The geographical data associated with plant collections may be considered as a set of facts about the places in which the plants thrive.

In the wild, target plants for ex situ conservation could thrive literally anywhere. Given the spatial and temporal heterogeneity of the environmental factors and the dissected topography of the landscape, the target plants may well originate in a variety of Cited by: 4.

The aim of this book is to provide readers with a broad understanding of the concept and methodologies of in situ conservation for target plant species. The book is based upon a global survey, undertaken by the first author, of existing guidelines, methodologies, case studies and other relevant literature on the in situ conservation of plant species, as well as current activities in this area.

The rate of species and natural habitat loss across our planet is steadily accelerating. This book argues that existing practises of plant conservation are inadequate and firmly supports the placement of ecological restoration at the cornerstone of biodiversity conservation.

The author unifies. Article 8 of the Convention clearly states the need to develop more effective and efficient guidelines to conserve biological diversity, while Article 9, along with the FAO International Undertaking on Plant Genetic Resources, promotes the adoption of a complementary approach to conservation that incorporates both ex situ and in situ techniques.

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.

The history of ex situ conservation and use of plant genetic resources. This paper discusses the historic profile of ex situ plant germplasm conservation with a main emphasis on the aspects most relevant to protection of genetic diversity and its use for agricultural development.

In-situ conservation is the on-site conservation of genetic resources in natural populations of plant or animal species. In India, ecologically unique and biodiversity-rich regions are legally protected as biosphere reserves, national parks, sanctuaries, reserved forests, protected forests and nature reserves.
