By Correspondent

JORABAT, Aug 22 - Manifold increase in human population in the recent decades has had an adverse impact on biodiversity, leading to loss of 65 per cent plant and animal species since 1975, said the Director of the Institute of Advanced Study in Science and Technology (IASST), Dr NC Talukdar.

�In this context, the North East is still regarded as a biodiversity hotspot, but thoughtful planning is needed for conservation of the region�s biodiversity,� he said while addressing a national seminar titled �Bioresources Conservation and Management Strategies for Rural Development� organised by the University of Science and Technology (USTM)-Meghalaya today.

A total of 65 papers will be presented at different sessions by participants from various colleges and universities of different States. Organised at the initiative of the Botany department of USTM, the two-day seminar will also see 51 poster presentations.

Earlier, the welcome address was delivered by Dr PK Goswami, USTM VC. Dr RK Sharma, USTM adviser, also addressed the inaugural session.
