Agrobiodiversity is a vital sub-set of biodiversity. Many people’s food and livelihood security depend on the sustained management of various biological resources that are important for food and agriculture. Agricultural biodiversity, also known as agrobiodiversity or the genetic resources for food and agriculture, includes. xxvii, p.: 24 cm Includes bibliographical references (p. ) and index Introduction -- Wild biodiversity under threat -- Agriculture and human welfare -- Agriculture and wild biodiversity -- Ecoagriculture: genesis of the approach -- Making space for wildlife in agricultural landscapes -- Enhancing the habitat value of productive farmlands -- Coexisting with wild biodiversity .
Importance of Biodiversity The Biodiversity Crisis. Biologists estimate that species extinctions are currently – times the normal, or background, rate seen previously in Earth’s history. The current high rates will cause a precipitous decline in the biodiversity of the planet in the next century or two. Otherwise known as agrobiodiversity, agricultural biodiversity is a broad term that includes "the variety and variability of animals, plants and micro-organisms at the genetic, species and ecosystem levels that sustain the ecosystem structures, functions and processes in and around production systems, and that provide food and non-food agricultural products.”.
Agriculture is the single largest driver responsible for biodiversity loss worldwide. Agricultural biodiversity provides a reservoir of biological resources, which are not only crucial for food security, but also for livelihoods, the provision of environmental services, and the resilience and adaptability of agro-ecosystems in the face of a changing climate. This book examines the challenges and impacts of poor diets and nutrition from current food systems and the potential contribution of biodiversity and ecosystem services in addressing these problems. There is a strong need for a multi-level, cross-sectoral approach that connects food biodiversity conservation and sustainable use to address critical problems in .

Book Description This book critically assesses the role of agrobiodiversity in school gardens and its contribution to diversifying diets, promoting healthy eating habits and improving nutrition among schoolchildren as well as other benefits relating to climate change adaptation, ecoliteracy and greening school spaces.
The Common agricultural policy addresses the preservation of habitats and biodiversity by specific rural development measures targeted at the preservation of habitats and biodiversity (agri-environmental and Nature payments), as well as requirements included in the scope of cross compliance for birds and habitats.
Using examples and case studies from around the globe, the book explores current strategies for improving nutrition and diets and identifies key research and implementation gaps that need to be addressed to successfully promote the better use of agricultural biodiversity for rural and urban populations and societies in transition.Agricultural biodiversity is the diversity of crops and their wild relatives, trees, animals, microbes and other species that contribute to agricultural production.
This diversity - which results from thousands of years of interactions among people and the environment - is a key component of healthy diets and human health.
