This dissertation explores the emergence of a new current in the field of conservation, defined here as transformative conservation. It explores three representative case studies: the assisted migration of endangered plants, the conservation of crop wild relatives in view of breeding them with food crops, and the assisted evolution of corals, analysing both the biopolitical modes of governance and the cosmopolitical dimensions of each proposal.
