About this book

The activity of bioprospecting is, in some areas, seen as an opportunity for the sustainable generation of income and funding for purposes such as conservation and health care. However, others see bioprospecting and related patenting as the piracy of biodiversity and knowledge, and there are those who also question the sustainability of the collections. This book provides an insight into the phenomenon, with contributions from those involved in bioprospecting and those protesting against it.
