Definitions for "Conservation"
The act of preserving, guarding, or protecting; the keeping (of a thing) in a safe or entire state; preservation.
the protection, restoration or sustainability of natural resources.
The protection, improvement and wise use of natural resources to provide the greatest social and economic value for the present and future.
In Piaget's terminology, awareness that two objects which are equal according to a certain measure (such as length, weight, or quantity) remain equal in the face of perceptual alteration (for example, a change in shape) so long as nothing has been added to or taken away from either object.
Piaget?s term for the ability of the child to recognize that certain properties of objects (such as mass, volume, number) do not change despite transformations in the appearance of the objects. See also preoperational stage.
Conservation refers to an ability in logical thinking according to the psychologist Jean Piaget who developed four stages in cognitive development. By the third stage, the Concrete operational stage, the child of age 7-11 has mastered this ability, to logically determine that a certain quantity will remain the same despite adjustment of the container, shape, or apparent size.
Proactive measures taken to reduce energy usage including for example improved efficiency, reduced waste, reduced consumption, enhanced building envelop, equipment modifications, etc.
The determined activities which, without adding systems or equipment, encourages users to change the way they use energy to reduce total cost. Savings using Prenovaâ€(tm)s Youâ€(tm)ve Got the Power!® conservation program have been as much as $5 million for a customer.
Reducing a customer's energy use to decrease the need to generate energy
Maximizing the endurance or minimizing the deterioration of an object through time, with as little change to the object as possible (Lord and lord l9~).
The repair or restoration of damaged or deteriorated archival material
Treatments (physical repair or chemical treatment) to improve the condition of damaged archival records, or to prevent further deterioration. Conservation treatment should be recommended by a conservator, a professional trained in the field.
Conservation is a broad term and used in many contexts. In museums, the term is generally used to cover two distinct activities: firstly, it describes remedial treatment work carried out by or managed by conservators; and secondly, it describes a wide range of activities and improvements that museums make to prevent damage to collections.(See also preventive conservation and remedial conservation.)
an occurrence of improvement by virtue of preventing loss or injury or other change
The attempt by the insurer to prevent the lapse of a policy.
The use of water-saving methods to reduce the amount of water needed for homes, lawns, farming, and industry, and thus increasing water supplies for optimum long-term economic and social benefits.
The management of salmon stocks to ensure that adequate numbers of salmon spawn each year, that spawning is successful, and that genetic diversity is maintained.
For purposes of this report, conservation refers to the provision or required spawning escapement which would insure optimum potential production.
The process or means of achieving recovery of viable populations.
Conservation is a high degree of similarity in the primary or higher structure of homologous proteins amongst various phyla. A highly conserved protein is often related to an important cellular function. A mutation in a highly conserved region leads to a non-viable life form, or a form that is eliminated through natural selection.
Actions taken to ensure the continues physical survival of an artifact without further degradation, for example, storing your material in archival containers and in cold vaults.
Art of stabilising existing original material as far as possible
stabilization and continued care of a fossil specimen in order that it survives through time.
Protein conservation refers to an amino acid sequence of a single protein or functional domains within a protein that remains relatively unchanged in several species throughout evolution, suggesting that these sequences or domains may be vital. Bioinformatics tools that compare protein and gene sequences can show sequence homology and conservation. See also Domain, Homology, Orthology, Paralogy.
The principles and practice of the science of preventing species extinctions.

Any work done on a comic to reverse excessive damage or to halt further degredation.
The retention of sequence and 3-D structure by biomolecules under varying environmental and genetic conditions.
materials involved are neither created nor destroyed.
The law that states that in any isolated system the total amount of energy is constant; or, the law that states that matter is neither created nor destroyed during any physical or chemical change.
Keywords:  noun
reducing a customer's use of water, natural gas or electricity to decrease the need to produce and/or transport these commodities. Conservation reduces utilities' costs for the consumer and reduces environmental pollution.
Reducing a customer's electricity use to decrease the need to generate electricity.
this is composed of temporal consistency, where money holds its value over time; and temporal durability, where money is easy to store and retrieve.
the concept that physical properties remain constant even as appearance and form changes.
the realization that changing the form of a substance does not change its amount. 120
