About this book

Shows how industry in the developed world relies on the biodiversity of the developing world. The first section of the report reviews direct consumption, the largest components of which are fisheries and forestry. The remaining chapters examine two specific industrial inputs where biodiversity serves as an information source: the use of wild genetic resources in plant breeding and the use of substances derived from the wild in the pharmaceutical industry.
