The authors of this book evaluate how well various conservation approaches provide for rare or little-known species, either directly or indirectly. A few conservation strategies are fairly well aimed at providing for such species, but most focus on other aspects of biological diversity and conserve such species at best opportunistically or Price: $ Conservation of Rare or Little-Known Species: Biological, Social, and Economic Considerations | Martin G.

Nature, species and biodiversity conservation should be a priority of each country. Publishing of Red Lists of animals or higher plants is quite common, but practical protection of algae and especially microalgae is quite a complex task with several difficulties.
These complications are the result of our quite poor knowledge about biodiversity (taxonomy, phylogeny) of microalgae together with. It examines how biodiversity is a holistic term, and how individual species need to be assessed and their own contribution to 'wildness' has to be recognized.
The book proposes a new way of conservation - one which makes more room for neglected, rather than endangered or rare species. In this book, we have described a variety of approaches designed to achieve biological conservation objectives for both rare and little-known species.
Resource managers are usually most concerned, for practical reasons, with approaches that conserve large-bodied and better-known taxa. Effective conservation of domesticated biodiversity can help to assure sustainable agricultural systems that minimize negative influences on natural environments.
In addition, livestock biodiversity is a component of total biodiversity and for several species is the only remaining source of diversity because the wild ancestors are now extinct.
