Global values of biological diversity: the public interest in the conservation of plant genetic resources for agriculture


Global values of biological diversity: the public interest in the conservation of plant genetic resources for agriculture



Plant Genetic Resources Newsletter 105: 1-7



The diversity of biological resources retained for use within modern agriculture is recognized to be one very important input within that production system. It contributes to the increased productivity, resistance and resilience of modern crops, providing improved returns to the farming industry across the Earth. There are other values of biological diversity which flow more to society at large rather than the agricultural industry.
