Welcome to BioGenRes Italian Network
Nowadays biodiversity is influenced by climate change, with negative consequences for human well-being. However biodiversity also provides an important contribution to both climate change mitigation and adaptation, because it represents an important basin of genetic resources.
Genetic biodiversity plays an important role also in national and international food supply chains. Higher consumer demand of typical products of certified quality increasingly subjects the food industry to a great transformation by exploiting the local genetic diversity. Thanks to its geographical position which favors ecological diversity, and to its historical and cultural richness, Italy is a pool of high natural and agricultural biodiversity.
In this scenario, the Italian Network of Genetic Resources represents a first step towards the systematic rationalization and harmonization of national genetic resources, for the improvement of the agro-food industry and sustainable forest management.
