Abstract

There has been a realisation in the latter part of twentieth century on the imperative need to protect and conserve the habitats and their resources. In the Biodiversity convention at the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) the term biodiversity is defined as "the variability among living organisms from all sources including inter alia, terrestial, marine and other ecosystems and the ecological complexes of which they are part, this includes diversity within species, between species and of ecosystems."
