Diversity Management in Production Fields

Researchers are seeking to address areas of natural resources management in which the genetic diversity aspect is highlighted, working on the premise that the ultimate use of genetic resources occurs when they are deployed or managed in ecosystems over space and time. Sustainable agroecosystem management strategies include:

1. Intraspecific diversity (genetic vulnerability, farmers' fields favoring coadaptation dynamics, populations mixtures, multilines, genetic base of cultivars or pedigree complexity, etc.);

2. Interspecific diversity (monoculture, intercropping, rotations, agro-forestry, neglected and underutilized species, home gardens, species interaction dynamics, etc.); and

3. Ecosystem management (sustainable natural resources management, unfavorable agricultural production systems, geneflow, etc.)
