Biodiversity for food and agriculture includes both all organisms that can be used in agriculture, forestry or fisheries and those that are associated to agro-ecosystems. It is also referred to as "agrobiodiversity" and encompasses intraspecific diversity as well as diversity of species and the diversity of agroecosystems.
The information portals give information on the different sectors of crops and wild plants, trees and shrubs, livestock, fish as well as on microorganisms and invertebrates.
The information portal "Agrobiodiversity" gives information about the Strategy for Agrobiodiversity of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food (BMEL) and the Scientific Advisory Board for Biodiversity and Genetic Resources at the BMEL. Also to be found are the general indicators that are important in assessing the state of agrobiodiversity in Germany.
Issues that affect the diversity of habitats and are directly linked to agrobiodiversity overlap with other areas such as nature protection, environment and resource conservation.
