  • Human Exploitation and Biodiversity Conservation

    The sustainable use of biodiversity is one of the three key objectives of the 1992 'Convention on Biological Diversity'. To achieve this, sound conservation practice has to be recognized as beneficial and implemented by all who access, or use it – from subsistence farmers to skiers and pharmaceutical bioprospectors. At the same time, indigenous ...
