Abstract

Focused Plant Biotechnological Research to Preserve Biodiversity

Biodiversity simply defined as the rich variety of life and of habitats on planet earth is a vital corner stone for both the survival and welfare of our existence as a species. The continual degradation of biodiversity has economic, environmental, and social consequences. The failure to preserve the biological resources especially the plant life on which we depend for food, clothing, medicine and more recently energy in the form of biofuels lays open the fact that we may also be losing potentially beneficial compounds and materials that have not yet been discovered. Added to this, the fact that climate changes will now significantly affect the world agricultural output and in turn directly influence world food security is not lost upon the scientific, political and industrial communities.
