Description:

Across the world, debates about the potential dangers of genetically modified food and the importance of biological diversity continue to dominate a good deal of public discourse, particularly with regard to developing nations. This website, designed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, explores some of the many issues surrounding biodiversity in food and agriculture. After reading the brief introduction, visitors may want to peruse the "Components" section where they can find information on animals, soils, pollinators, and more. Each component contains a number of related documents and resources. The site also provides ample information on "Cross-Sectoral Issues" including biosecurity, nutrition, and protected areas - to name only a few.
