Conservation of biological diversity is a major issue in our hyper technologized world. In this regard, as is known the loss of natural habitats contributes to the loss of biodiversity and by some thousands of species are thought to be in danger of extinction in the coming decades. In this respect, we have published several articles about the artificial biological experiments and the possible impact in the preservation of biodiversity, for example; New artificial species. Could they affect biodiversity?. What is unclear, however, is whether protecting large natural habitats is more important than protecting small areas where more specific species live. Protecting large natural areas appears to be important, but conserving smaller specialized areas within more degraded areas may also be essential to conserving biodiversity, because they may support species that have lost much of their specific habitat. Thus, the authors of an article on conserving biodiverse habitats have found that 18.6% of high-value biodiversity habitats are located within these smaller protected areas ().
Never before have so many economic resources been devoted to preserving the environment, but the most effective ways of applying them and their priorities need to be perfected. Following we quote an example of the huge effort is being done:
“The FAO/IAEA laboratories in Seibersdorf, Austria, have developed and validated a wide range of isotopic and nuclear techniques to improve soil quality and management, mitigate the effects of invasive species on the environment and support the breeding of plants and animals with superior genetic makeup, which can better resist climatic changes and diseases. Through its technical cooperation program and coordinated research projects with partner institutions, the IAEA transfers these techniques to scientists, technicians and practitioners around the world.”
