Reflecting on conservation biology’s beginnings, Michael Soulé realized that the major factor in conservation biology’s emergence as a distinct discipline was the recognition among biologists of the accelerating and global loss of species – the “extinction crisis” (Soulé ).

Biological resources are a precious source of food, feed, fiber, fuel, and pharmaceuticals. The United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) signed in represents a comprehensive international effort to promote conservation, sustainable use, and equitable sharing of biological Abstract.

Two phrases — biological integrity and biological diversity—have joined the lexicon of biologists and natural resource managers during the past two importance of these phrases is demonstrated by their influence on environmental research, regulatory, and policy ://   Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity United Nations Environment Programme Saint-Jacques Street, SuiteMontreal, QC, H2Y 1N9, Canada Tel: +1 Fax: +1 [email protected] PRESS RELEASE Arrangements for meetings The use of the synonymous term biological diversity can be traced back to at least (Swingland, ), while the contracted form, common in the second decade of the 21st century, was coined in   The Convention is thus the first global, comprehensive agreement to address all aspects of biological diversity: genetic resources, species, and ecosystems.

It recognizes - for the first time - that the conservation of biological diversity is "a common concern of humankind" and an integral part of the development :// Biological diversity means the diversity of living beings. Especially in the tropics, the immense variation of species is now rapidly being reduced by man.

This may lower the resilience of ecosystems and means irreversible loss of potential :// Washington, DC: The National Academies Press. doi: / the problem of the greatest loss of biological diversity in 65 million years.

It continues to do so, with some degree of success, although history must be the final judge of its efficacy.
