Saurabh Bhatia, in Modern Applications of Plant Biotechnology in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Ex-situ conservation. Off-site conservation is called as ex-situ conservation, which deals with conservation of an endangered species outside its natural habitat. In this method genetic information of cultivated and wild plant species is preserved in the form of in vitro cultures and seeds.

A. Thielges, S. Sastrapradja, A. Rimbawanto. The main activities of NBG in the field of conservation of tropical orchid species ex situ include maintenance of living collections, propagation of these plants through in vitro asymbiotic seed. Ex Situ Plant Conservation, edited by Edward O. Guerrant Jr., Kayri Havens, and Mike Maunder, is the first book to address integrated plant conservation strategies and to examine the scientific, technical, and strategic bases of the ex situ approach. The book examines where and how ex situ investment can best support in situ conservation.

In situ conservation may be viewed as a dynamic process that allows the continuance of the evolutionary processes that result in genetic diversity and adaptation. In situ and ex situ conservation methods are complementary options essential to the maintenance of crop and biological diversity (Office of Technology Assessment, a).

In-situ conservation is one of two basic conservation strategies, alongside ex-situ e 8 of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) specifies in-situ conservation as the primary conservation strategy, and states that ex-situ measures should play a supportive role to reach conservation targets.; In-situ conservation aims to enable biodiversity to maintain itself within. The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) is a scientific centre for the study of plants, their diversity and conservation, as well as a popular tourist d in as a physic garden to grow medicinal plants, today it occupies four sites across Scotland—Edinburgh, Dawyck, Logan and Benmore—each with its own specialist collection.. The RBGE's living collection consists of.

Here we quantify how that diversity is conserved in ex situ . Ex situ conservation literally means, "off-site conservation".It is the process of protecting an endangered species, variety or breed, of plant or animal outside its natural habitat; for example, by removing part of the population from a threatened habitat and placing it in a new location, which may be a wild area or within the care of humans. The degree to which humans control or modify the. This programme, will in turn, contribute to a global programme of ex situ plant conservation delivered by the network of seed banks in the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership.
