Biodiversity for food security and nutrition

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) gives us this neat summary of why biodiversity is key to sustainable, efficient, resilient and nutritious food production.

CBD says that food security depends on these:

– Physical availability of food
– Economic and physical access to food
– Food utilisation
– Stability of the other three dimensions over time

You can scroll down the CBD infographic for more detail and links.


About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
