Plant biodiversity conservation and role of botanists
It is a well-known fact, that worldwide thousands of plant species are endangered and facing extinction with the
current trend of their exploitation and destruction. In recent years, there is a growing awareness concerning the impact
of temperature rise, industrialization, desertification and shift in the growing seasons of plants, loss of pollinators,
seed dispersers and increasing frequency of intense weather events such as drought, storms and floods making several valuable plants extinct.
