Singapore City, Singapore

We welcome all the enthusiastic researchers from all around the world to join us for the 3rd International Conference on Biodiversity and Ecology Restoration is going to be held on June 21-22, 2021 at Singapore City, Singapore. The summit will move forward with the theme “Mainstreaming Biodiversity for Sustainable Development”.  Biodiversity conference will provide a robust and dynamic platform and also aims to promote the restoration of a spectrum of “saving and restoration of species”. This biodiversity event invites the global community of environmental professionals that includes researchers, ecologists, students, environmentalists, coversationists, botanists, zoologists, entomologists, and oceanographers who are actively engaged in this field. 
 
The Earth is populated by an incredible number of different living creatures. The term that is used to define this “crowd” of organisms that populate every corner of the Planet, and that have adapted even to the most extreme environments, is biodiversity or biological diversity. Biodiversity measures the variety of animal and vegetable species in the biosphere and is the result of long evolutive processes. The elements that make up biodiversity can be subdivided into three different levels:
 
Genetic level
Species level
Ecosystem level
 
Biodiversity and Ecosystem
 
This fundamental ecosystem function has relevance for global food supply and for primary production. There is currently great concern about the stability of both natural and human-managed ecosystems. It can be used to describe biological diversity at a variety of different scales. Species play essential roles in ecosystems, so local and global species losses could threaten the stability of the ecosystem services on which humans depend. It is often understood in terms of the wide variety of plants, animals and microorganisms including humans, and their physical environment; it seeks to understand the vital connections between plants and animals and the world around them and provides information about the benefits of ecosystems and how we can use Earth’s resources in ways that leave the environment healthy for future generations.
 
Plants and Animal Biodiversity
 
Animals have adapted to survive and thrive in their environmental riches. Is one of the most fascinating aspects of biology? Farm animal biodiversity is so important for maintaining genetically diverse and healthy livestock. However, this diversity is being threatened by some industrial farming operations that depend on a small number of farm animal breeds that can thrive in an intensive livestock environment. Because of this, farm animal breeds that don't thrive in factory farming operations are becoming rarer. Plants species consists of familiar organisms such as trees, herbs, bushes, grasses,  ferns and mosses. 
 
 
Ecological Activities
 
Shortage of landfill sites, pollution, the depletion of the ozone layer, and the greenhouse effect challenge human existence.  Some adaptations are behavioural and sometimes behavior drives the evolution of new adaptations by creating new selective environments. If an organism has a trait that provides an adaptive significance in its environment, then natural selection favours it. Adaptive significance refers to the expression of a trait that affects fitness, measured by an individual's reproductive success.
 
 
Coastal & Marine Biodiversity
 
We people need air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat, new medicines, a climate we can live in, beauty, inspiration and recreation.  As we know that living oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce climate change impacts. The diversity and productivity of the world's oceans is a vital interest for human kind marine species provide important ecosystem services such as the provision of food, medicines, and livelihoods. They also support tourism, recreational and many other activities around the world. Unfortunately, the resources of the sea have been over-harvested by humans, threatening marine biodiversity and we should think on it.
 
 
Genetic Diversity
 
All types of life, regardless of whether microorganism, plants, people contain genes. It is nothing but the sum of genetic information contained in the individual plants, animals and microorganism. Important conservation consequence of this is even an endangered species is saved from extinction.
 
 
Green Economy
 
It aims on economy that aims at reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcity and its main focus is for sustainable development without degrading the environment.
 
 
Forestry
 
Forestry is nothing but the science and craft of creating, using, managing, repairing woodlands, and associated resources for human and environmental benefits. If we talk about economic segment then forestry plays an important role in various industrial countries. For example, if we talk about Germany, then forests cover nearly a third of the land area, wood is the most important renewable resource, and forestry supports more than a million jobs and nearly about €181 billion of value to the German economy each year.
 
 
Environmental Toxicology
 
Environmental Toxicology is about the study of the effect of the man-made and natural chemicals on health and the environment. It includes the study of the effect of chemical on organism.
 
 
Entomology
 
It is the study of insects and their relationship to human, environment and other organism. And entomologists make great contributions to such diverse field such as agriculture, chemistry, biology etc. Entomologists makes contributions to such diverse field as agriculture, chemistry, biology, human or animal health, molecular science and forensics. The study of insects serves as the basis for developments in biological and chemical pest control, pharmaceuticals, food production and storage, mapping biological diversity, robotics and other field of science.
 
 
Captive Breeding
 
It is a process of maintaining plants or animals, in a controlled environment, Like zoos, botanical garden. It also used for saving species from extinction. It is sometimes employed to help species that are being threatened by human activities such as human loss, fragmentation, over hunting or fishing, pollution, predation, disease and parasitism. But for success breeders must consider many factors including genetic, ecological, behavioural and ethical issues. Most successful attempts involve the cooperation and coordination of many institutions.
 
 
 
Biodiversity Management
 
Biodiversity management is nothing but it’s a type of management which can be done by managing the sustainable forest and harvesting Trees, and the ecological restoration.
 
 
Biodiversity is the shortened form of two words “biological and diversity”. Biodiversity conference will provide a healthy and dynamic platform and also aims to share and discuss on, how different types of species evolved in our ecology. It will also aims to promote the restoration of a spectrum of “Saving and restoration of species”.
 
Scope
 
The scope of such a conference is to develop national strategies for the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity. Scope of biodiversity also includes ecology, evolution, marine science, animal science, plant science, landscape, environmental science, geology, forestry, sustainable energy, medicinal field etc.
 
Business value
 
Conservation values are beginning to inform consumer and investor decisions. Eco-labeling structures are being developed that advertise or certify that products were produced in ways consistent with biodiversity conservation. The global trade in certified organic agriculture was worth $21 billion worldwide in 2000. 10 International organic standards are expanding to landscape-scale biodiversity effects. The rainforest alliance and the sustainable agriculture network certify coffee, bananas, oranges, and other products grown in and around high biodiversity-value areas. The sustainable agriculture initiative is a coalition of multinational commercial food producers (Nestle, Dannon, Unilever, and others) who are seeking to ensure that all of the products they purchase along the supply chain come from producers who are protecting biodiversity. In 2002, more than 100 million hectares of forest were certified (a fourfold increase over 1996), although only 8 percent of the total certified area is in developing countries, and most of that is in temperate forests. If we look to the current scenario then Available information suggests that biodiversity protection services are presently the largest market for ecosystem services. A team from McKinsey & Company, the World Resources Institute, and The Nature Conservancy estimated the annual international finance for the conservation market (conservation defined as protecting land from development) at $2 billion, with the forest component a large share of that.11 Buyers are predominantly development banks and foundations in the United States and Europe

Funding opportunities: The most important single source of funding for biodiversity-related activities is the financial mechanism of the convention, the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The GEF supports implementation of the GTI in several ways. 
 
Forecast for next five years: As the theme of our Conference is “Saving and restoration of species”. By repairing ecosystems damaged through human activities, ecological restoration plays an important role in biodiversity conservation efforts. Furthermore, restoration promotes functional ecosystems and the ecosystem services they provide to humans. Restoration projects span virtually every type of ecosystem on Earth, employ a variety of increasingly sophisticated approaches and range in scope from small, locally driven endeavors to global-scale initiatives like the Bonn Challenge (to restore hundreds of millions of hectares of forest.
