Biodiversity and the Plant Science Industry. Managing Natural Resources Sustainably in Agriculture
The approaches and case studies contained in this publication illustrate the variety of ways in which the plant science industry contributes to biodiversity conservation. They show how product stewardship is implemented through a life-cycle approach to protect biodiversity both on and off the farm; how efforts to retain biodiversity on the farm contribute to more economic and efficient pest control; and how plant science companies are taking direct action to protect and enhance biodiversity on corporate land and in communities, for instance through tree growing activities .
The achievement by 2010 of a significant reduction in the current rate of loss of biological diversity requires actions at all levels.
