Biodiversity and Its Responsibility in Biotechnology: A Review - Mishra & Dwivedi (2013) - Trends in Biosciences

Biodiversity and Its Responsibility in Biotechnology: A Review - Mishra & Dwivedi (2013) - Trends in Biosciences | endangered species | Scoop.it

Biodiversity is threatened by agriculture as a whole, and particularly also by traditional methods of agriculture. Knowledge-based agriculture, including GM crops, can reduce this threat in the future. The introduction of no-tillage practices, which are beneficial for soil fertility, has been encouraged by the rapid spread of herbicide tolerant soybeans in the USA. The replacement of pesticides through Bt crops is advantageous for the nontarget insect fauna in test-fields. Biodiversity differences can mainly be referred to as differences in herbicide application management. Biotechnology, while controversial particularly in agricultural applications, has the potential to improve sustainability inseveral ways and is expected, thereby, to help maintain natural as well as agricultural biodiversity. This paper results from the combined contributions of scientists, industrialists, and governmental and public interest organisations across Asia.
