The conservation of plant genetic resources and intellectual property rights



The conservation of plant genetic resources and intellectual property rights



Perspectivas Rurales 3(1): 49-72



The first part of this paper describes the conservation and use of plant genetic resources. The creation of knowledge by indigenous and traditional communities is compared with that by modern scientific and technological methods. The property rights associated with each system are analysed briefly. The economic value of plant genetic resources can be analysed on the basis of the cost of conversion of field varieties to commercial varieties.
