There is a tremendous wealth of mega-biodiversity in the world. But the very existence of this wealth is under threat due to habitat destruction, pushing animals towards inbreeding depression and thereby paving way for their extinction. This has made essential human intervention and assisted reproductive technologies. Thus, the issues of conservation of wildlife and biodiversity have become the need of the hour, especially in terms of policy making at the government level. You deserve, We Conserve: A Biotechnological Approach to Wildlife Conservation contains 16 articles by scientists engaged in research on the conservation of wildlife, role of reproductive technologies and modern approaches being followed in wildlife conservation. It also deals with various techniques used in field conditions such as chemical capture, molecular genetics, ultrasonography, cryopreservation, wildlife forensics, etc. The present book will be of special interest to professionals engaged in forest and environment related activities, particularly wildlife conservationists, students pursuing their career in veterinary discipline of wild animals and policy makers. It will also be useful for nature enthusiasts, who have an interest in wildlife

  • A compilation of 16 articles, it focuses on the technological efforts useful in tackling the problem of conservation.

Madhusudan W Pandit :- Madhusudan W. Pandit obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Pune in 1970. He has worked as a professional Scientist at various institutions such as NCL, Pune; RRL, IICT & CCMB, Hyderabad. After his retirement in 1993, he has worked as a Consultant at NAL, Bangalore. As a Consultant, he helped in establishing the Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD), an autonomous centre of the Dept. of Biotechnology, Govt. of India. At present, he is working as a Consultant to the CCMB on the Project “Laboratory for the Conservation of Endangered SpElectronics\Communication and Instrumentation Engineerings (LaCONES)”.

Lalji Singh :- Lalji Singh after obtaining M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Banaras Hindu University, spent about 13 years in the Institute of Animal Genetics, University of Edinburgh (1974-1987) before joining CCMB. Since July 1998, he is the Director at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), Hyderabad. He is internationally known for his contribution in the area of molecular basis of sex determination. As a follow-up of this work, he developed an indigenous probe for DNA fingerprinting. He was responsible for setting-up an autonomous Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD) at Hyderabad, which is funded by the DBT, Govt. of India, for which he was the Officer on Special Duty for first three and a half years. Because of his efforts, the evidence based on DNA fingerprinting is now being accepted in the Indian Court of Law. He has been responsible in setting-up of the Laboratory for the Conservation of Endangered SpElectronics\Communication and Instrumentation Engineerings (LaCONES) as a separate campus of CCMB.

S Shivaji :- S. Shivaji is Group Leader, Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad.
