Research on agrobiodiversity
Network Agrobiodiversity Research
The “Strategy on Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biodiversity for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries” (strategy on agrobiodiversity of the BMELV) of the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection includes the establishment of a “network” on agrobiodiversity research as a priority task. This GENRES information service on “research on agrobiodiversity” contributes to the implementation of this priority task.
The network agrobiodiversity constitutes the module „agrobiodiversity research“ of the scientific network "Network Forum for Biodiversity Research Germany” (NeFo- Netzwerk-Forum zur Biodiversitätsforschung Deutschland). NeFo is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
At the same time the network agrobiodiversity serves as part of the “Clearing-House Mechanism Germany” (CHM) for the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity, especially in the field of communication and information.
