Firstly I think this question is quite ambiguous (I did not come up with it) so sorry.

I have only come across 4 'types' of conservation: environmental, animal, marine, and human conservation.

I am aware that animal conservation includes their habitats, so perhaps keeping seed banks is a way of preserving habitats.

I may generally say that seed banks are a way of preserving biodiversity but I don't know if 'biodiversity conservation' is even a thing.

    $\begingroup$ I don' t really get what your "types" are referring to (do you have a reference to these specific four types?) and they are clearly not covering all cases in conservation biology. They are also not mutually exklusive, and can overlap. Also, by "seed bank"I assume that you are referring to human conservation of seeds (as genetic material, see eg the Svalbard Global Seed Vault) and not the soil seed bank that some species has. $\endgroup$ – fileunderwater Apr 16 '18 at 18:19

    $\begingroup$ I agree with @fileunderwater. The "types" you list are unclear. The question is based upon a series of issues of terminology and semantics and therefore cannot be answered. Anyone could just say random things like "agriculture conservation", "plant conservation", "economic conservation", "field conservation", "forest conservation", "private-sector conservation", etc... and there is no way to judge what would make sense or not. I am voting to close as unclear. $\endgroup$ – Remi.b Apr 16 '18 at 19:26

    $\begingroup$ @Remi.b I am simply rewriting the question that has been set as homework. Any ambiguity is therefore not at all down to me. Part of the reason I asked here is because I did not really understand the question. I also "shared my previous attempts" at the question and therefore have met the question asking guidelines. $\endgroup$ – Ben Hughes Apr 17 '18 at 6:33

    $\begingroup$ @BenHughes Is there a certain book your homework/lectures is based on? Or did you get any definitions during the lesions regarding the terms you used in the question? $\endgroup$ – Arsak Apr 17 '18 at 7:44

Seed banks are a part of "plant conservation" efforts which is missing from your list.

  • $\begingroup$ IMO the question makes no sense and an answer to a senseless question cannot make any sense (unless it starts by redefining the question). -1 $\endgroup$ – Remi.b Apr 16 '18 at 19:31

    $\begingroup$ I do see your point. But, one of the problems that I've seen on one other SE site is that questions go unanswered because they are somehow viewed as unworthy. I choose to answer if it takes less energy than many of the comments. IMO. $\endgroup$ – user22542 Apr 16 '18 at 19:59
