Format: Paperback
Ex Situ Plant Conservation: Supporting Species Survival In The Wild is a grand compendium of essays by learned authors discussing the practice of promoting conservation of wild plants, as well as how such efforts can also support and work with in situ conservation. A superb, cutting-edge resource for those involved in plant conservation theory and practice for botanic gardens, zoos, conservation organizations, managers of protected public and private lands, students and faculty of environmental studies, and much more. A technical and college or professional-level anthology with complex multiple focuses on in-depth aspects of its subject, recommended especially for environmental awareness and conservation reading lists.

Format: Paperback
The approach of this book is a very practical and useful one for those who wish to have a deeper understanding of seed biology and behavior under storage and many techniques for plant conservation on off-site facilities.
