Although often poorly managed to date, production forests have the potential to support a high percentage of natural forest biodiversity. They have a vital role to play in conservation strategies. This book attempts to bridge the current gap between conservation requirements and commercial interests, indicating the possibilities for integrated. Protected areas are regions or zones of land or sea that are reserved for purposes of conserving nature and biodiversity. These areas serve a broad range of functions including scientific research, protection of wilderness, preservation of biodiversity and species protection, safeguarding environmental services such as watersheds, maintenance of specific cultural sites and natural features.

Only one study showed organisms thriving better in the community-managed area than in the strictly protected area. Failures of community-managed lands to adequately protect biodiversity have also been reported in other studies, that looked at the presence of indicator species 7 and at threatened or endemic species in buffer zones 8.

China has lost about 50% of its mangrove forests from to Sincemangrove forest area has increased by % per year due to strict protection of the remaining mangrove forests and large-scale restoration.
By67% of the mangrove forests in China had been enclosed within protected areas. Get this from a library. Biodiversity conservation in managed forests and protected areas. [P C Kotwal; Sujoy Banerjee;] -- Papers presented at the National Workshop on "Biodiversity Conservation in Managed Forests and Protected Areas" from November 29 to December 1,Bhopal.
Highlights Forest loss in protected (PA) and community managed forests (CMF) was compared by meta-analysis. Deforestation rates and driving factors of 40 Pantropical PAs and 33 CFMs were analyzed with QCA.
Mean annual rates of forest loss in PAs was greater and more variant than in CMF. PAs are successful at conserving forest in isolated areas with little demographic pressure.

The creation of protected area networks helps to reduce biodiversity loss and provides significant contributions to global conservation efforts. However, despite the fact that the surface area of designated protected areas has steadily increased sincethe rate of biodiversity. Despite of being an exceptionally biodiversity rich country, the forest coverage of Bangladesh is declining at an alarming rate.
Declaration and management of protected areas in this regard is one. It should support African governments and local populations to tackle major drivers of biodiversity loss and environmental degradation in a holistic and systematic way, including support for well managed protected area networks that involve and respect the rights of communities and indigenous peoples.
Environmental science and conservation news. Madagascar’s environment minister has criticized the way protected areas are managed in the country, setting the stage for a.
Con-currently, the mission of protected areas has expanded from biodiversity conservation to improving human welfare. The result is a shift in favor of protected areas allowing local resource use. Thus far, studies focusing on forests and their services have gained less attention compared with studies on other biomes.
Additionally, management practices may potentially undermine the capacity of forests to sustain biodiversity conservation and services in the future, especially outside protected areas. A total of hectares (ha) of forest land in protected areas — which comprise wildlife sanctuaries, national parks and conservation reserves) — was diverted for developmental projects by the standing committee of the National Board for Wildlife (NBWL) in Habitat loss due to human activities and climate change is synergistically posing serious threats to the global biodiversity leading to irreversible extinction of several species.
In wake of recent extinction, several forests are declared as protected areas where no more human activities are allowed.
However, the scope of these protected areas got broadened from mere conservation to poverty.

A non-intervention approach based on protected areas is a common strategy for forest biodiversity conservation (Bernes et al., ; Peterken, ). Creating areas with very limited human influence has also been adopted globally as one of the key actions that can halt the further loss of biodiversity.
WWF is working for a global network of well-managed, representative protected areas – a key aspect of achieving our goal to save biodiversity. With our partners, we are at the forefront of all aspects of protected area work – from planning, establishing, and managing to securing sustainable financing, influencing policy, and ensuring that.
Biodiversity conservation is the protection and management of biodiversity to obtain resources for sustainable development. Biodiversity conservation has three main objectives: To preserve the diversity of species.
Sustainable utilization of species and ecosystem. To maintain life-supporting systems and essential ecological processes. This notion is explored for the Peninsular Malaysian forests, and it is shown that biodiversity conservation would be optimized if the system of protected areas is located within a broader matrix of carefully managed production forests.

Protected and conserved areas are the foundation of biodiversity conservation.
They safeguard nature and cultural resources, improve livelihoods and drive sustainable development. IUCN works to establish best practices and standards that maximise the effectiveness of protected and conserved areas and advances justice and equity in conservation.
