It carries two preambles one on Biological Diversity Act-2002 and National Biodiversity Authority-2003 and second on Delhi Declaration on Agrobiodiversity Management. The chapter 1 and 2 carry information on biological diversity and assessment of endemism and biovarsity among 34 hotspots of the world. Chapter 3 to 14 deal with biodiversity in underutilized fruits of arid region, acid lime, banana in Tripura, pear, cluster bean, kale, onion, ridge gourd, large cardamom, cocoa, African oil palm and Genomics of oil palm.

Professor (Dr.) K.V. Peter is basically a horticulturist, a plant breeder and a University Professor. He is an acknowledged and decorated scientist and science manager. A post graduate from G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, he did post doctoral research at BARC Beltsville Maryland USA and worked at Laboratories at AVRDC Taiwan and Guadeloupe (French West Indies). He was associated with development and release of improved and high yielding varieties/hybrids in tomato, brinjal, chilli, bittergourd, melons, amaranths and cowpea. Sources of resistance to bacterial wilt in tomato, chilli and brinjal; aphids in cowpea and viral leaf curl in chilli were located by him and are now used in breeding programmes. A vegetable seed production complex established by him first at Pantnagar and later at Kerala Agricultural University in 1980 continue to supply quality seeds to farmers even today. Prof. Peter provided managerial support to the ICAR Indian Institute of Spices Research Calicut to possess the World’s largest collection of black pepper and cardamom germplasm. The technology package for protected cultivation of bush pepper would make available green pepper throughout the year.
