Marine Biodiversity offers articles in the category original paper, short note, Oceanarium and review article.

It forms a platform for marine biodiversity researchers from all over the world for the exchange of new information and discussions on concepts and exciting discoveries. Covers research in all aspects of biodiversity in marine ecosystems. The Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON) was established to help develop a community of practice and standards to meet the requirements of national monitoring programs and various international treaties and agreements, including UN Agendathe Aichi targets of the CBD, the next WOA, and the IPBES efforts to evaluate changes in biodiversity.

Crabs, shrimps, fishes, whale, sharks and dolphins are also very common faunal forms of. Assessment of flora and fauna of Gulf of Mannar,India,Gulf of Mannar is one of the unique coastal regions for rich biodiversity in India.

There is a vast area between Tuticorin and Kanyakumari which has never been explored so far even its comes under Marine Biosphere Reserve and includes thousands of fishermen who depend on fishery for their daily livelihood.

The extensive marine biodiversity of India is mostly reported from the four major areas in coastal and island habitats such as the Gulf of Mannar and the Gulf of Kutch, Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Lakshwadweep. India is signatory to Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and is thus committed to achieving the Aichi Biodiversity Tar which prescribes conservation of 10% of coastal and marine areas.

In the second part in this series, we will know about the spread of biodiversity in India and various conservation programmes for the protection and growth of biodiversity in India.

Notwithstanding the fact that current knowledge of the number of species inhabiting the earth is still incomplete, estimates vary from 8 to 14 million species. Since then the IO-CoML has been in the forefront to promote research on marine biodiversity in India and the region.

Of more than 40 new species described from the IO region in the last few years, 10 (6 mysids, 2 chaetognaths, 1 littoral mite, and 1 deep-sea sponge) were discovered by scientists working within the region. The number of fish species reported from fresh and marine waters of India iswhich constitutes % of fish known from the world.

Gopi and Mishra reported marine fish of India which is % of total fish species so far reported from India. The estimated number of Indian marine fish species is classified into families, where 12 families are having more than 40 species and. The endemic species and genera are largely concentrated in two principal biogeographical regions of India i.e.

Himalyas (ab species) and Pennisulai India (about 2, species). Ecosystem diversity informs the number of riches, trophic levels and ecological systems like energy flow, food webs and recycling of nutrients. : Assessment of flora and fauna of Gulf of Mannar,India: Marine Biodiversity in Kudankulam coast,Southern India (): Palingamoorthy, Gnanamoorthy, Mathews, G, Srinivasan, M: Books Books Go Search.

This book is a compilation of research articles which serves as a reference of ecological biodiversity and conservation in India. This book brings together key studies from the deep sea and open ocean, to tropical shores and polar regions to consider how comparable the patterns and processes underlying diversity are in these different ecosystems.

Marine Biodiversity will be a major resource for all those interested in biodiversity. What is marine biodiversity.

Biodiversity is an all-inclusive term to describe the total variation among living organisms of our planet. In its simplest form, biodiversity or biological diversity is therefore 'Life on Earth' and includes marine biodiversity 'Life in the Seas and Oceans.` The marine environment has a very high biodiversity because 32 out of the 33 described animal phyla are.

Understanding Marine Biodiversity outlines the current state of our knowledge, and propose research agenda on marine biological diversity. This agenda represents a fundamental change in studying the ocean—emphasizing regional research across a range of space and time scales, enhancing the interface between taxonomy and ecology, and linking.

In this India is one of the world’s 12 mega-biodiversity centres, including being among the 6 centres of origin of agronomic crop species identified by the botanist N.I.

Vavilov. In India more t animal species and ab plant species have been identified which makes up. India contains a great wealth of biological diversity in its forests, its wetlands and in its marine areas. The country is one of the mega biodiversity centres in the world and has two of the world’s 18 ‘biodiversity hotspots’, located in the Western Ghats and in the Eastern Himalayas.

Biodiversity loss, also called loss of biodiversity, a decrease in biodiversity within a species, an ecosystem, a given geographic area, or Earth as a whole. Biodiversity, or biological diversity, is a term that refers to the number of genes, species, individual organisms within a given species, and biological communities within a defined geographic area, ranging from the smallest ecosystem to Missing: India.

India is home to a large variety of animals. It is a biodiversity hotspot with its various ecosystems ranging from the Himalayas in the north to the evergreen rain-forests in the south, the desert sands of the west to the marshy mangroves of the east.

Continuous Article Publishing. As ofMarine Biodiversity will change its publication structure from paginated issues to a consecutive publishing model: Continuous Article Publishing. This means that papers are published in a volume/issue immediately after acceptance.

As a further aspect of the new system, articles are no longer paginated sequentially by issue.Coastal road: BMC pays Rs crore for marine biodiversity conservation According to CRZ clearance granted in Maythe civic body had to pay 2% (Rs crore) of the total cost of the.india as a mega diversity nation 89 hotspots of biodiversity 90 threats to biodiversity: habitat loss, poaching of wildlife, man-wildlife conflicts 91 endangered and endemic species of india 94 common plant species 94 common animal species 99 conservation of biodiversity: in-situ and ex-situ
