Convention recognizes that “conservation of biological diversity is a common concern of humankind”. The loss of biodiversity and unsustainable use of resources is a matter of common, global concern no matter where it occurs. There are three primary bases under the Convention for addressing threats to high seas biodiversity: 1. The land, air and seas of our planet are home to the tiniest insects and the largest animals, which make up a rich tapestry of interconnecting and interdependent forces. This is life, this is biodiversity. Biodiversity found on Earth today consists of many millions of distinct biological species, the product of four billion years of evolution.
Over the last two decades, an increasing body of information has been added to the biodiversity science and the subject matter has become more and more voluminous. Biodiversity has now become a multidisciplinary subject in which concepts, ideas and methodologies have been contributed by a number of other disciplines. However, there is a dearth of comprehensive /5(3). New High Seas Treaty Could Be a Gamechanger for the Ocean A historic international treaty to protect marine biodiversity is currently being negotiated, but will it be strong enough to create reserves and boost conservation efforts?
This article summarises the biodiversity in the European Seas. It is based on reports (publish date: 31 may ) of the ‘European Environmental Agency’ (visited 31/08/)(), in which the marine biodiversity of each Sea is described in some the ‘EEA reports’ an overview is given of the most important physical, biological and exploitation characteristics, the main . The following are excerpts from E.O. Wilson’s acclaimed book The Diversity of Life. In this work, Wilson reflects on the evolution of life and man’s destruction of the natural world. ** The sixth great extinction spasm of geological time is upon us, grace of n:

Scientists have variously estimated that there are from 3 to 30 million extant species, of which million have been classified, includinginsects, 41, vertebrates, andplants; the remainder are invertebrates, fungi, algae, and microorganisms.
Over years after Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland’s work titled Essai sur la géographie des plantes was published, climate science, book conservation, and botanical research have converged around this work.
This book was digitized and made available in by the Missouri Botanical Garden for the Biodiversity Heritage Library. This book discusses the consequences for the evolution, ecology and biodiversity of the region, including endemism, slowed metabolism, longevity, gigantism, and its larval stages; features which make this vast ocean a "natural laboratory" for exploring the ecological adaptive processes, scalable to work in extreme environmental conditions.
The main themes of the Symposium were biodiversity in enclosed and semi-enclosed seas and artificial habitats, and the restoration of degraded systems. These themes are highly relevant today both from a basic scientific point of view and from. The main themes of the Symposium were biodiversity in enclosed and semi-enclosed seas and artificial habitats, and the restoration of degraded systems.
These themes are highly relevant today. The papers dealing with the first theme represent current research and concerns about marine biodiversity in enclosed seas. The papers in the second theme represent a synthesis of.
This chapter reviews the origins and diversity, marine ecosystems, biodiversity, human diversity, resources and exploitation, and management regimes of the Sulawesi Seas. The collision of once widely separated tectonic plates and subsequent evolution and migration lead to the formation of the strangely shaped island and its rich biodiversity.

Besides the overexploitation of living resources (more than million tons yielded in ), the major threat to the biodiversity of the China seas is environmental deterioration (pollution, coastal construction), particularly in the brackish waters of estuarine environments, which are characterized by high productivity and represent Cited by: Fisheries and biodiversity: smooth sailing or stormy seas.

Book of the Week: Adventures on the North Sea The North Sea—at least according to Walter Wood—was awash in blood and fish.

The biodiversity of many ecosystems is under threat and although seas cover the majority of our planet's surface, far less is known about the biodiversity of marine environments than that of terrestrial systems. It is also not clear whether many of the patterns known to occur on land also occur in the by: 4.biodiversity.
Oceans are seriously under-protected: just over 1% of the ocean surface is designated as protected areas, compared to nearly 15% of protected-area coverage on land.
