      Conservation biology may be seen as a multidisciplinary science addressing the current biodiversity crisis (Primack ).Its main goal is to understand the impacts of human activities on species, communities, and ecosystems, and to develop approaches to prevent species extinction—indeed to reinsert species into functional ecosystems. Conservation biology is the management of nature and of Earth's biodiversity with the aim of protecting species, their habitats, and ecosystems from excessive rates of extinction and the erosion of biotic interactions. It is an interdisciplinary subject drawing on natural and social sciences, and the practice of natural resource management.: The conservation ethic is based on the findings.

      Covers the complete array of topics that are central to conservation biology and natural resource management, thus providing the essential framework for under-graduate and post-graduate courses in these subject areas. The book is the most comprehensive assessment of conservation topics in Australia and one of the most comprehensive worldwide/5(2).   Deadline: Aug Applications are open for the Oak Spring Garden Foundation’s Fellowship in Plant Conservation Biology The Fellowship in Plant Conservation Biology will be awarded to one outstanding, early-career practitioner, scholar or scientist working on issues related to plant and landscape conservation in the broad sense.

        The SCB Oceania (SCBO) section represents Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands, and has been functioning with an elected independent board since Amongst other activities, SCBO holds tremendously successful regional conservation conferences, recently in Darwin, Australia (), Suva, Fiji () and Brisbane, Australia (). Society for Conservation Biology 4th Oceania Congress. The Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) Oceania section is proud to team up with the University of Queensland Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science (CBCS) to host the 4th Oceania Congress for Conservation Biology (OCCB) to be held on July , in Brisbane, Australia.
