Abstract

Biodiversity plays a decisive role in maintaining the ecological balance of the earth. Towards the end of the 20th century, humankind grew conscious of its unprecedented impact upon natural environments and the danger of exhausting biological resources. Therefore, biodiversity emerged as an environmental issue in the early 1980s, culminating in the Conference on Sustainable Development held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. At the same time, biological diversity was recognized as an essential parameter, in particular for the agro and pharmaceutical industries.
