Biodiversity and Biomedicine provides a new outlook on Earth’s animal, plant, and fungi species as vital forms of human health treatments. While there are over 10 million various species on the planet, only 2 million have been discovered and named. This book identifies modern ways to incorporate Earth’s species into biomedical practices and emphasizes the need for biodiversity conservation.

Written by leading biodiversity and biomedical experts, the book begins with new insights on the benefits of biological active compounds found in fungi and plants, including a chapter on the use of wild fruit as a treatment option. The book goes on to discuss the roles of animals, such as amphibians and reptiles, and how the threatened presence of these species must be reversed to conserve biodiversity. It also discusses marine organisms, including plants, animals, and microbes, as essential in contributing to human health.

Biodiversity and Biomedicine is a vital source for researchers and practitioners specializing in biodiversity and conservation studies. Students in natural medicine and biological conservation will also find this useful to learn of the world’s most bio-rich communities and the molecular diversity of various species.

Key Features

  • Presents new developments in documenting and identifying species for biodiversity conservation and ethical considerations for biodiversity research
  • Examines biodiversity as an irreplaceable resource for biomedical breakthroughs using available species for medical research
  • Discusses challenges and opportunities for biodiversity protection and research in biosphere reserves
