Mangroves: Ecology, Biology and Taxonomy presents topical research from across the globe in the study of mangroves, including the eco-biology of mangroves, the mangrove ecosystem of Sundarbans, mangrove wetland ecosystem modelling in the Everglades and the microbial diversity .   Chapter: Chapter 15 – Biodiversity and Conservation. Class XII NCERT Biology Text Book Chapter 15 Biodiversity and Conservation is given below. If an alien from a distant galaxy were to visit our planet Earth, the first thing that would amaze and baffle him would most probably be the enormous diversity of life that he would encounter.

  Ecosystem diversity describes the number of niches, trophic levels and various ecological processes that sustain energy flow, food webs and the recycling of nutrients. BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION IN INDIA. India is a home land of cultivated species and wild relatives of crop plants. It is a centre of diversity of animal species (e.g. Ecology Live allows scientists to remain connected to new ideas and discoveries while working from home. The talks are aimed at anyone with an interest in the latest research in ecology and its applications, from undergraduates to working ecologists and research leaders. The talks take place on Zoom. You need to register and use the Zoom app or.

A group on plant-soil interactions, with a focus on biogeochemical cycling, community dynamics, and ecosystem functioning. The study of plant-soil interactions is a rapidly growing area. Soil organisms are very important for plant growth and community dynamics, which is why ecologists increasingly consider plants as major drivers of soil biota.   About the Major As an Evolution, Ecology and Biodiversity (EEB) major, you will learn about the diversity of life on Earth, including diversity in genes, physiology, shapes, sizes and behaviors. You will learn about how this diversity emerged, as plants, animals, and microbes become adapted to the environment and to each other. And you will learn to predict whether populations of .

This book contains overviews and original studies focused on ecological and ecosystem functioning studies, hazards and conservation management, assessment of environmental variables affecting species diversity, also considering species richness.

( views) Principles of Field Biology and Ecology by Allen H. Benton - McGraw-Hill, In terms of plant diversity, India ranks tenth in the world and fourth in Asia. India represents nearly 11% of the world’s known floral diversity with o plant species.

The richness of Indian plant species as compared to the world is shown in Table 1. Endemism pertains to the restricted distribution of the flora and fauna. The File Size: KB. The vegetation is a fundamental component of ecosystems that reflects the effects of the total environment (Billings ).Plants grow collectively in a specific ecosystem and have a mutual relationship among themselves as well as within the local environment (Mishra et al.

), which results in the formation of different vegetation types in different by: 5. India has tremendous biodiversity, genetic as well as of species and ecosystems. It contains over 7 per cent of the world’s biodiversity on per cent of the Earth’s surface. This diversity can be at­tributed to the vast variety of landforms and cli­mates resulting in habitats ranging from tropical to temperate, and from alpine to desert.

Introduction to Ecology I. This Introductory Ecology Module explains the hierarchical structure of ecology-species, populations, communities, and ecosystems. Each lecture will focus on a key ecological principle then provide applied examples to further demonstrate the concept.

Author(s): Dr. James Danoff-Burg. About this book. Aquatic Ecosystems brings together the latest information on the rapid advances and developments in the field of aquatic is very rich in terms of biological diversity due to its wide range of habitats and climatic conditions.

Figure I shows that plant species assemblages in each locality support some focal functions (i.e., biomass production, crop production, nutrient retention, and conservation of faunal diversity).

Supporting all ecosystem functions in all single localities is unrealistic, and different sets of species in different local communities are expected to support ecosystem functioning in a different Cited by: Keeping this view in mind, A.G.

Tansley in proposed the term “ecosystem”. Eco implies the environment, and ‘system’ ‘implies an interacting, interdependent complex. Ecosystem Ecology emphasises the movements of energy and nutrients (chemical elements) among the biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems.

Concepts of an Ecosystem. Key aspects of the ecology and conservation of this important ecosystem are also discussed. Marine Faunal Diversity in India provides marine biologists and related researchers with access to the latest research and field studies from this major region.

This paper highlights the Thar Desert and its ecosystem. The work reviews and presents the natural condition of the Thar Desert within Rajasthan State.

The diversity of the vegetation and of higher animals is discussed on the basis of earlier works and surveys. Major problems and conservation issues are presented along with their possible Cited by: Spread the love Biodiversity Hotspot in India: Hot spots are the areas where the density of biodiversity is very high.

this high diversity is also known as megadiversity. These areas are the most threatened areas. Over the world, 25 terrestrial hot spots have been identified for the conservation of biodiversity. Results of regular monitoring of the species diversity and structure of plant communities is used by conservation biologists to help understand impacts of perturbations caused by humans and other environmental factors on ecosystems worldwide.

Changes in plant communities can, for example, be a reflection of increased levels of pollution, a response to long-term climate change.Application of plant ecology: The study of plants in their environment has yielded a large body of knowledge which provides aids to the science of conservation of natural resources.

The knowledge of ecology IS of great help in controlling soil erosion, reforestation, restoration of wild animals as well as grassland vegetation and flood control.It is understood that the structural and functional systems of communities and their environment is called an Ecology and Ecosystem.

Ecology is a branch of science that deals with the study of a biosphere. In the biosphere distinct kinds of plants, animals, microorganisms, and other components surround us.
