About the book
BioČresources are reservoirs of genetic variation. The entire population of the world are dependent on these resources. As a result of over utilization they are on the verge of extinction. Hence it is essential to identify new bio-resources and it is indispensable to conserve the existing bio resources to meet the challenges of requirements of mankind. The book covers the topics on global initiative on biodiversity conservation, bio-prospecting of bioresources for sustainability, identification of genotypes using genetic markers, in vitro conservation of medical mushrooms and medical plants, larvicidal and analgesic activity of medicinal plants and conservation of scared groves etc.
