Available from: National academies press online www. The results of the study show that although hydropower development is a more immediate risk to the Tonle Sap ecosystem than climate change, in the next decades, climate change will bring larger seasonal uncertainty to the wetland. There are many regions in the world that have similar problems and if we do not do our best to conserve biodiversity, we could be looking at similar or even worst natural catastrophes. Creating awareness on environmental issues and the negative impact of the loss of biodiversity will let people understand the inevitable need for biodiversity conservation. At present tiger, Conservation has been seen in India not just as a push to spare a jeopardized species in any case, with equivalent significance, additionally as a method for conservation of biodiversity to a sizeable extent. Environmental dealingss of a group are non unvarying but they are shaped by the daily interactions every bit good as their worldview and moralss. But with an increased demand of rapid population growth, biodiversity is gradually depleting.
Biosphere reserves: Biosphere reserves or natural reserves are multipurpose protected areas with boundaries circumscribed by legislation. Figure 1 Loss of biodiversity The causes of the recent loss of biodiversity are degradation, destruction and conversion of ecosystems which results in the loss of species. Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge 2004 ; 3:12-26. There is a dire need to conserve these natural things. Inadequate knowledge and inefficient use of information.
Objectives of the act: 1. Most of them have started keeping exotic plants for educational and research purposes. This is because we think that we are doing well for ourselves, even though many species have gone extinct until now and that we would remain unaffected even if few more go extinct. The loss of habitat makes wild animals vulnerable. Malhotra 1998 in his partial numbering of Grovess in India reported 5,691 sacred Grovess. Great Nicobar Andaman and Nicobar Islands 1989 885 5. Other indirect effects include the melting of snow and ice cover over the Polar Regions and as a result sea levels have risen by as much as 100-200mm in last 100 years.
Strict action must be taken against individuals, groups and organizations indulging in these. Loss of these can have a huge impact on the environment as well as other living beings. Some importance of biosphere reserves are as follows: a These help in the restoration of degraded ecosystem. Aesthetic value: Aesthetic values such as refreshing fragrance of the flowers, taste of berries, softness of mossed, melodious songs of birds, etc. Merely a few sacred Grovess are still under their pristine conditions and these include Hariyali, Tapovan, Binsar, and Tarkeshwar in Garhwal Himalaya. Conclusion Humans must keep a check on their activities and stop exploiting flora and fauna for serving their own selfish purposes.
Also, a healthy ecosystem can help to reduce the risk of diseases and the way we respond to them. Such domesticated species were cultivated through modern agriculture for higher yield over the years. For example, we human beings depend on various animals and plants for our clothes, shelter and food. Sustainable use of the components of biodiversity 3. Food and Agriculture T he search for green employment opportunities in agriculture is faced with several. As a result of the growing population on earth, the ecosystem has been really disrupted because of the human needs for shelter and food.
All these services together are valued 16. Linkss between sacred land and H2O and preservation are non confined to minority religions, as they exist virtually in all religions around the universe. There are also many laws in place which make the hunting of endangered and vulnerable animals a punishable offence. Here the species richness can be defined as the count of species present per unit area. Species diversity: It describes the variety in the number and richness of the spices with in a region.
Some research and educational activities are permitted here. We need to do our best in cutting down and reducing if possible eliminate all of the different activities that cause pollution. Why there is a necessity for the conservation of Biodiversity? These are maintained by government. Hazaribag Wildlife Sanctuary Jharkhand 1954 183. The society that preserves the richness of biodiversity will lead a healthy and happy life and the society that turns blind eye to the damages caused to biodiversity will suffer.
This careless approach towards the issue will cost us our life cycle too. Hence it is our duty to ensure that our activities do not affect the other flora and fauna on the planet. Plants and trees help in reducing pollution and maintain the purity of atmospheric air. When the population is greater than usual, the increasing needs of the population leads to a depletion of fauna and flora which ensures a biodiversity decline. It includes distinctive creatures, plants, smaller scale living beings and their qualities, water environments, earthbound, and marine biological communities in which they all are available.
