      The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), known informally as the Biodiversity Convention, is a multilateral treaty. The Convention has three main goals including: the conservation of biological diversity (or biodiversity); the sustainable use of its components; and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from genetic g: Turkey. Turkey hosts more than three thousand endemic plant species, has high diversity of other taxa, and is almost entirely covered by three of the world's thirty-five biodiversity hotspots.

      In addition, the immense richness of tropical biodiversity is a largely untapped reservoir of new foods, pharmaceuticals, fibers, petroleum substitutes, and other products. Because of this set of historical circumstances, this book, which contains papers from the forum, should prove widely useful. Get this from a library! Race and reality: what everyone should know about our biological diversity. [Guy P Harrison] -- The concept of race has had a powerful impact on history and continues to shape the world today in profound ways. Most people derive their attitudes about race from their family, culture, and Missing: Turkey.

      The day may come when ethical considerations about biological diversity become our most important reason for species conservation. But in the meantime, if we want to hold on to our planet's biological diversity, we have to speak the vernacular. And the vernacular is utility, economics, and the well-being of individual human by: On Biological Diversity book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers.

Book Description. Predictions about the success of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) are pessimistic. It has now become commonplace to bemoan the scope, ambition, and deeply political nature of a convention that addresses issues ranging from ecosystems protection to the exploitation of genetic resources, from conservation to justice, and from commerce to scientific knowledge.

INTRODUCTION. The terms ‘biological diversity’ or ‘biodiversity’ are of relatively recent usage in international law. Until the s, international instruments tended to address ‘wildlife’ or ‘wild fauna and flora’, and focused on species and habitats. Biodiversity is being lost at an alarming rate which poses a risk to the provision of ecosystem services.

The Convention of Biological Diversity provides a global legal framework for action on biodiversity It is a key instrument to promote sustainable development and tackle the global loss of biodiversity.

The biota of the earth is being altered at an unprecedented rate. We are witnessing wholesale exchanges of organisms among geographic areas that were once totally biologically isolated.

We are seeing massive changes in landscape use that are creating even more abundant succes­ sional patches.The Amount of Biological Diversity.

Many recently published sources, especially the multi-author volume Synopsis and Classification of Living Organisms, indicate that about million living species of all kinds of organisms have been described (Parker, ; see also the numerical breakdown according to major taxonomic category of the world insect fauna prepared by Arnett, ).Cited by: Biological Diversity takes a fresh, innovative approach to the teaching of biodiversity.

Rather than detailing and cataloguing the major taxa and their evolutionary relationships, the authors have selected 18 groups of organisms and used these as a framework in which to discuss the species and their interactions with man and each other.
