The commercialization of biotechnology has resulted in an intensive search for new biological resources for the purposes of increasing food productivity, medicinal applications, energy production, and various other applications. Although biotechnology has produced many benefits for humanity, its applications have also resulted in some undesirable consequences such as diminished species biodiversity as well as diminished agrobiodiversity, environmental contamination, and the exploitation of intellectual property rights and patents in appropriating the biodiversity of developing countries.This book discusses the role of biological, ecological, environmental, ethical, and economic issues in the interaction between biotechnology and biodiversity, using different contexts. No other book has discussed all of these issues in a comprehensive manner. Of special interest is their impact when biotechnology is shared between developed and developing countries, and the lack of recognition of the rights of indigenous populations and traditional farmers in developing countries by large multinational corporations.

Review:

For 15 years I have seen almost all the books and commercial GMO files, as an international expert on the subject. Pr Krishna Dronamraju's book `Emerging Consequences of Biotechnology' is one of the best on the file, exceptionally documented. Moreover, it is clearly written and concerns the developing world for which it is a major issue. The link between economy, science and biodiversity is so well done that it sheds a new light on this burning subject. --Pr Gilles-Eric Séralini, Président of CRIIGEN Scientific Council, France
