                                                                                              International Scientific Symposium
                                                                                                 “Conservation of plant diversity”,
                                                                      Second edition 16-19 may 2012, Chisinau, Republic of Moldova

       In the last decades, is aware the intensification fact of damage process of natural capital. The main living components of nature – flora and fauna, which determine the status of biological diversity and comfort of life on Earth, are subject to the constant anthropogenic pressure.
       Analyzing in the worldwide plan, the results of the conservation of biological diversity over the last decade, we find, unfortunately, that the impact on biodiversity has increased, and species extinction continues with terrifying rapidity.
       Situation of things suggests that measures undertaken by the country governments did not lead to stop biodiversity degradation and to optimal restore of ecosystems functionality.
        To obtain the desired results is necessary to continue research in this field to a high quality level, enhanced activities on environmental education and awareness, conservation and rational utilization of natural resources, increasing energy efficiency and reducing the impact of climate change. Overcome uncertainties related to the reduction in time of natural resources and increasing of more needs of mankind can be solved only by developing of new concepts and modern technologies.
        Actions which will be undertaken during the future 10 years promoted according to the Convention on Biological Diversity Programs are designed to definitively stop species extinction on Earth. Whether will not succeed, many natural ecosystems on Earth will not ensure the needs of present and future generations, and the species extinction process will become irreversible.
        Having heard the reports of participants at International Scientific Symposium “Conservation of plant diversity”, second edition, 16-19 may 2012, Chisinau, Republic of Moldova: Botanical Garden (Institute) of Academy of Sciences of Moldova; Botanical Garden “A.Fatu” of University “Al.I.Cuza” of Iasi (Romania); Botanical Garden “D.Brandza” of Bucharest (Romania); University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary of Cluj-Napoca (Romania) and National Botanical Garden “N.N.Grisko” of Kiev (Ukraine) found that they were the results of recent priority investigations, having as a topic the structural botany and biotechnology, conservation of plant world, the introduction of plants and sustainable use of plant resources, urban and rural green spaces planning, training and environmental education of the population, etc.
        Scientific papers presented at the symposium by the participants, represent a higher stage in the development and implementation of research methods, evaluation of obtained results and implementation of elaborated performance in national economic branches, promoting knowledge in society to the most valuable chapter “socio-human”. Furthermore were addressed scientific issues for the future, whose solution will improve the effectiveness measures of conservation of biological diversity, mobilization of plant genetic fund and sustainable use of plant resources.
        Botanical Garden (Institute) of Academy of Sciences of Moldova; Botanical Garden “A.Fatu” of University “Al.I.Cuza” of Iasi (Romania); Botanical Garden “D.Brandza” of Bucharest (Romania); University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary of Cluj-Napoca (Romania) and National Botanical Garden “N.N.Grisko” of Kiev (Ukraine) represents scientific and cultural centers of both national and international importance, regard to conservation, introduction, acclimatization and regeneration in the optimal artificial conditions of significant native and alien plant species, regard to scientific, economically and aesthetically standpoint. These collections serve as a repository of genetic resources and plant genetic fund of reproductive material and are intended to preserve it for present and future generations.
        It is significant that botanical researches in Moldova have received an significant impulse after passing the Science and Innovation Code, accession of the Republic of Moldova to the European Union 7th Framework Programme, which mobilized the creative potential of scientists, has opened opportunities for integration into the international scientific community, created the conditions for promoting young researchers, implementation in national economy branches of valuable elaborations, attracting investments to endow with advanced scientific equipment, support scientific research priority.

       International Scientific Symposium “Conservation of plant diversity”, second edition, 16-19 may 2012, Chisinau, Republic of Moldova, DECIDE:

1. Integration of issues related to conservation of plant diversity and sustainable use of plant resources in economic sectors.
2. Extend the system of protected areas to ensure optimal functionality of natural ecosystems.
3. Continuation and development of scientific topics on studying plant diversity and sustainable use of plant resources, introduction and enrichment of existing collections, creation of new collections through international seeds fund exchange, promote complex expeditions in common with related institutions.
4. Expand collaboration with regional science centers in Romania, Ukraine etc. On the promotion of topiary art as an active tool in the conservation and wise use of the plant world, environmental education and awareness of population.
5. Training of specialists in the development of scientific research projects nationally and internationally, designed to ensure the flow of information between scientific centers, oriented for evaluation, conservation of plant diversity and sustainable use of plant resources.
6. Encouraging efforts on improving of specialists based on extension in collaboration with international and regional centers, sharing advanced equipment of these centers.
7. Enhancing cooperation with higher education institutions in professional training of young scientific staff through various specializations, master, doctorate, post-doctoral.
8. Develop and promote a plan for construction and development of Botanical Garden (Institute) of Academy of Sciences of Moldova regarding to the main entrance, Background Exhibition Orangery, Botanical Museum, ornamental network of roads and bridges.
9. Preparing and promoting of a technological transfer program in the national economy branches of advanced scientific research.
