Solution

The correct option is B Biosphere reserves
Ex-situ conservation is done by preserving the components of biological diversity outside their natural habitats. It is done by conserving genetic resources, as well as wild and cultivated or species. Examples include gene banks, tissue cultures, microbial cultures, cryopreservation, seed banks, botanical gardens, etc. Whereas, Biosphere reserve is a strategy for in-situ conservation.
So, the correct answer is 'Biosphere reserves'.
