About this title


DNA and Tissue Banking provides a practical and legislative framework covering uses of DNA, requirements of the Convention on Biological Diversity and CITES, model legal documents, practical guidelines for setting up DNA and tissue banks and worldwide case studies. Essential reading for all who wish to understand the application of genetic technologies to conservation.


The world is facing a biodiversity crisis of unprecedented magnitude. Unless there are radical changes in human behaviour, we can expect significant and alarming species loss in the near future. DNA and tissue banks have great potential as tools for biodiversity conservation, yet few have been established. Arising from a collaborative project on DNA banking, phylogeny and conservation of the South African flora, "DNA and Tissue Banking for Biodiversity and Conservation" provides the practical and legislative framework necessary to establish more DNA banks and is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the application of genetic technologies to conservation.
