Title:
A re-evaluation of the role of ex situ conservation in the face of climate change
Authors:
Pritchard, Diana J.; Harrop, Stuart R.
Abstract:
In situ and ex situ conservation have been established as two distinct approaches to the protection of “wild” biodiversity with ex situ approaches relegated to a subsidiary position. In this article, we explore whether ex situ conservation should still be subordinated in this manner, particularly in view of climate change models which predict the extinction of species and drastic, rapid and chaotic shifts in the distribution of habitats and species across the globe.
