Expertise on agriculture and biodiversity
The main French institute on agricultural research - INRA (Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique) – has been commissioned by the government to deliver a state of the art scientific expertise on agriculture and biodiversity.
A one and a half year process, involving more than 20 researchers from various disciplines, having examined more than 2,000 references has lead to a comprehensive report (112 pages) on the subject (downloadable at www.inra.fr, in French only).
From the Forum perspective, the report notably strikes the importance of semi-natural vegetation for the conservation of biodiversity, with several sound science references supporting the conclusions.
