Keeping in mind the importance of biodiversity, its exploration, sustainable utilization, conservation and proper documentation, the need of the day is to generate awareness as how to protect it for survival and sustainable development of humankind and how people’s participation is needed to achieve the target. The UGC sponsored National Seminar of Biodiversity held during 19-20 November, 2016 organised by the Department of Zoology, Barasat Government College, Barasat, Kolkata in collaboration with The Zoological Society, Kolkata & West Bengal Biodiversity Board discussed some of the urgent issues and concerns of biodiversity and future strategies for conservation. The present Proceedings of the Seminar is a compendium wherein the invited lectures (abstracts/full Paper) as well as submitted papers (full length papers), presented both through oral and poster presentations have been accommodated along with the Messages from the well known dignitaries; From the Convenor’s Desk; A Brief History of the Department of Zoology; Organising Committee; Programme Schedule, Report about Seminar, etc. The papers have been arranged under four (4) sections viz., under Section II : Key Note Address (abstract only), Section III : Invited lectures (abstracts/full Paper), Section IV : Papers presented. This compendium would provide very valuable and updated information on diverse aspects of biodiversity and its conservation and it is expected to shed light on future strategies to be adopted by policy makers, planners, researchers, etc. Though utmost efforts were made to make this proceedings error-free but yet if there are any, the Editor-in Chief urge the readers/users begging excuse. The Editor-in-Chief takes the privilege of expressing her sincere thanks to the organising committee for various suggestions regarding the publication of the Proceedings. The financial support received from UGC is also gratefully acknowledged.
