Biodiversity
Social and Ecological Perspectives

By Vandana Shiva

This book is a collection of essays which argue that the roots of the crisis of genetic erosion lie in the industrial system of the North. It also refutes the notion that biodiversity conservation can only be achieved if commercial interests are used to "value" genetic resources. The authors argue that Third World peasants and forest dwellers have been the guardians and beneficiaries of the world's biodiversity. They warn of emerging biotechnologies which will erode biodiversity by increasing uniformity in production, and imposing intellectual property rights to turn lifeforms into private property.
