Megadiversity is a much less discussed subject than biodiversity of the present day in India in the fields of flora and fauna. This term and another term Hot Spots have recently been used by World Bank and other World bodies for species diversity and endemism in the World s selected few rich floral and faunal zones. Two spots identified as Megadiversity and Hot Spots in India are North-eastern Himalayas and Western Ghat. But India as whole has been marked a megadiversity area. 11 other megadiversity zones are Mexico, Peru, Colombia, Equador, Brazil, Zaire, Madagascar, China, Indonesia, Australia and Malaysia. Indian people of today are not yet very much conscious and concerned about biodiversity loss and degradation of entire ecosystem. The authors have brought into the sphere of discussions the corelation of the terms megadiversity (biodiversity) with conservation, sustainability ecodevelopment and Protected Area concerning the north-eastern Indian states. They have also collated various definitions, concepts and values of Megadiversity (biodiversity) and presented them in charts and critical notes to make the subject perceptible to common readers. To highlight the megadiversity (biodiversity) rich resources and loss due to biotic impacts the authors have chosen the floral groups, medicinal plants and faunal groups of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, lizards and amphibia for analysis on a broad base. In support to their findings they have adequate data, charts to nullify the much bloated other floal and faunal resources. As the conservation need is urgent in the face of depletion India needs a well designed strategy to protect these resources. During the exercise the authors have referred to the Herculian efforts of the Government of India how on war footing they have been trying to save these resources from depletion. Hope this work will open up new vista on the status of our resources of flora and fauna, their present threats and action plan for conservation.

Centring on South Africa's Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, this book synthesizes a century of insights from the ecology and conservation management of one of Africa's oldest protected wildlife areas. The park provides important lessons for conservation management, as it has maintained conservation values rivalling those of much larger parks sometimes through, and sometimes despite, strong management interventions, including the rescue of the white rhino from extinction. In addition, the book highlights the ecological science produced in the park, much of which has become widely influential, including the megaherbivore concept, new functional approaches to understanding biomes, and new understandings about the role of consumers in shaping ecosystems. The volume is ideal for researchers and policymakers interested in the conservation of relatively small, isolated and protected areas.

World Bank Discussion Paper No. 337. Draws on household survey data from 87 rural villages in Bangladesh to examine the contribution that government family planning programs, as well as other health care interventions, have made toward the recent reduction in fertility by increasing contraceptive use and reducing infant mortality. The paper suggests that the programs have been effective and finds that targeted credit program placement, such as the Grameen Bank and the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC), contributed to the effort as well.

The Next Step in Biology We are excited to present to you, "BIOLOGY," written by Dr. Rob Brooker, Dr. Eric Widmaier, Dr. Linda Graham, and Dr. Peter Stiling; it is the "next step" in majors biology. In addition to being active researchers and experienced writers, the author team has taught majors biology for years. The goal in launching a new text is to offer something better--a comprehensive, modern text featuring an evolutionary focus with an emphasis on scientific inquiry. We invite you to take a few moments to learn more about the many different ways this text is the next step in biology. To view a sample chapter, go to
