Biodiversity conservation

Biodiversity conservation- This lecture explains about the conservation of biodiversity.Conservation is the defense, maintenance, management, or restoration of wildlife and traditional assets akin to forests and water. Via the conservation of biodiversity the survival of many species and habitats which might be threatened due to human events will also be ensured. Other explanations for conserving biodiversity incorporate securing useful typical resources for future generations and protecting the health of eco-system features.
Conservation can commonly be divided into two types:

In-situ: Conservation of habitats, species and ecosystems the place they naturally occur. This is in-situ conservation and the typical tactics and interplay are conserved as good as the elements of biodiversity.

Ex-situ: The conservation of elements of biodiversity out of the context of their normal habitats is known as ex-situ conservation. Zoos, botanical gardens and seed banks are all illustration of ex-situ conservation.

In-situ conservation shouldn't be normally possible as habitats will have been degraded and there is also competition for land because of this species have got to be removed from the field to save them
Threatened Species

Over the last 200 years many species have turn out to be extinct and the extinction price is on the develop because of the have an impact on of human pastime. The fame of species has been assessed on a global scale by means of the sector Conservation Union. Taxa that are dealing with a excessive chance of worldwide extinction are catalogued and highlighted within the IUCN purple record of Threatened Species.
Threatened Habitats

Habitat destruction comes in many forms from clear felling of forests to easy alterations in farming practices that fluctuate the total surrounding habitat. If a habitat is degraded or disappears a species may additionally become threatened. The united kingdom is in chance of losing various habitats starting from lowland calcareous grassland to mudflats and wet woodland.

Extinct species and endangered species

This lecture explains about the Extinct species and endangered species in india and how we evaluate endangered species and extinct species. An Endangered (EN) species is a species which has been categorized by way of the worldwide Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) purple record as more likely to emerge as extinct. Endangered is the second most severe conservation reputation for wild populations within the IUCN's schema after seriously Endangered (CR).

In 2012, the IUCN purple record featured 3079 animal and 2655 plant species as Endangered (EN) international. The figures for 1998 were, respectively, 1102 and 1197.[citation needed]

Many countries have laws that guard conservation-reliant species: for example, forbidding hunting, limiting land progress or developing preserves. Populace numbers, traits and species' conservation fame may also be discovered within the lists of organisms by means of populace.

Our world is filled with so much eye-catching beauty and intrigue that it demands to be photographed. The only problem: the perfect landscape and wildlife shot is so tricky that if you don’t know how to shoot what you’re seeing at the right time and the right moment, you’re likely to let these natural wonders pass you by.

In fact, it often seems like some photographers are simply blessed with a preternatural ability to capture these subjects in their lenses. But even the world’s greatest landscape or wildlife photographers are operating from a learnable set of skills, techniques, tricks, tools, and perspectives to get their award-winning photos of shimmering sunsets, snowcapped mountains, curious monkeys, and vibrant fish. Knowing how to work with natural light, how to move quickly and quietly, how to play with depth of field and perspective, how to research your subjects, how to see the world like a professional photographer: these and other insights can help photographers at all levels take smarter, sharper photos—whether you’re on a short walk through your backyard or on a grand trip to some of the most unique regions on the planet.

Who better to explain these skills and insights than expert photographers from National Geographic, whose trained eyes are responsible for some of the most powerful images of the natural world? In The National Geographic Guide to Landscape and Wildlife Photography, National Geographic photographers Michael Melford and Tim Laman reveal their stories and secrets about what makes for great landscape and wildlife photography. Taking you around the world from the comfort of your own home, they’ve created 24 visually-rich, adventure-packed lectures that lay bare the art of seeing that’s essential to taking unforgettable photos of desert cliffs, penguin colonies, dramatic waterfalls, birds of paradise, and so much more.

Environmental Impact Assessment - Analyzing Benefits and Actions

Dr. Manishika Jain in this lecture explains the concept of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and difference between EIA and Strategic EIA.

Tool to identify environmental, social and economic impacts of a project prior to decision-making – UNEP
In India, Started in 1978-79 by river valley projects
EIA has now been made mandatory under the Environmental Protection Act, 1986 for 29 categories of developmental activities that involves investments of Rs. 50 crores & more


Stages Involved in EIA
Screening
Scoping
Assessment & Evaluation
Report EIA: Non-technical summary for the general audience
Review EIS
Decision Making: Whether to approve project or not
Monitoring, Compliance, Enforcement
Environmental Auditing

Which projects fall under EIA?
Which can significantly alter the landscape, land use pattern & lead to concentration of working population
Which need upstream development activity like assured mineral and forest products supply
Which need downstream industrial process development
Those involving manufacture, handling and use of hazardous materials
Those sited near ecologically sensitive areas, urban centers, hill resorts, places of scientific and religious importance
Industrial Estates which could cumulatively cause significant environmental damage
What to Address?
Meteorology and air quality
Hydrology and water quality
Site and its surroundings
Occupational safety and health
Details of the treatment and disposal of effluents and the methods of alternative uses
Transportation of raw material and details of material handling
Control equipment and measures proposed to be adopted
Benefits of EIA
Environmental benefits
Economic benefits
Reduced cost and time of project implementation and design
Avoided treatment
Clean-up costs
Impacts of laws and regulations
Procedure
Follow Up
Precautionary Principle: If an action or policy has a suspected risk of causing harm to the public, or environment, in the absence of scientific consensus, the burden of proof falls on those taking the action. Part of Rio Declaration & Kyoto Protocol.
Polluter’s Pay Principle: To make the party responsible for producing pollution responsible for paying for the damage done to the natural environment. Support from OECD and European Community.
Strategic EIA
Formalized, systematic & comprehensive process to identify & evaluate environmental consequences of proposed policies, plans or programs
Ensure full inclusion
Address at earliest possible stage of decision-making on a par with economic & social considerations
Can be applied to entire sector

Snake Lecture 2014

Forest Management

In the spring of 2011, the Denman Forestry Issues Series was presented by the School of Forest Resources (SFR), College of the Environment, at the University of Washington. The series featured nine speakers celebrating the international contributions of SFR to the United Nations International Year of Forests 2011, which has the theme of raising awareness of sustainable management, conservation, and development of all types of forests throughout the world.

The third session focused on Forest Management, Carbon Fluxes and Urban Wildlife. Rob Harrison described a forestry project in Brazil where intensive management and restoration ecology work side by side in the Mata Atlantica forest on the Brazilian east coast. Ken Bible showed how SFR is involved in a multinational carbon monitoring network at the Wind River Field Station in southern Washington near the Columbia River. Switching gears the final presentation was given by Barbara Clucas on a cross-continental comparison of ecological connections between humans and birds in urban areas in Europe (Berlin) and North America (Seattle).

The Denman Forestry Issues series is intended to educate the public about topical issues in forest resources in the Pacific Northwest, as well as provide information to natural resource specialists and students. Many of the international research, teaching and outreach activities conducted by SFR faculty and students impact the Pacific Northwest and some of the work is directly transferable. SFR has faculty and students working in Europe, Africa, South America and Asia in all types of forests and their interesting stories are told here.
