(Article Type: Explanation) ‘Biodiversity prospecting’, sometimes shortened to ‘bioprospecting’, is the exploration of biodiversity for commercially valuable genetic resources and biochemicals.

It describes a search for resources, and the collection of resources with the intention to commercialise them. This book offers practical guidance on how to arrive at equitable biodiversity research and prospecting partnerships.

Drawing on experience and lessons learned from around the world, it provides case studies, analysis and recommendations in a range of areas that together form a new framework for creating equity in these partnerships.

About this book The benefits from genetic resources are mostly drawn from the commercial use of traditional knowledge held by indigenous communities. Commercial Use of Biodiversity discusses the issues of access to these resources and the equitable sharing of benefits drawn from them by examining a range of worldwide biodiversity prospecting.

Drawing on experience and lessons learned from around the world, it. The bioprospecting and conservation of the African Piper genus is almost nonexistent. Available reports from Asian and South American countries indicate institutional and governmental involvement in prospecting and conservation program of various species found in those areas (De Britto and Mahesh, ; Landon, ).

Such knowledge and precision during field work are of secondary importance, however, if the search and collection are based on biodiversity or ethnomedical uses, since accurate taxonomic identification may be made at a later date, in a Museum or Herbarium environment.

Biodiversity Prospecting and Indigenous Knowledge Systems. Biodiversity prospecting or bioprospecting is the systematic search for biochemical and genetic information in nature in order to develop commercially-valuable products for pharmaceutical, agricultural, cosmetic and other applications.

Over the last two decades, an increasing body of information has been added to the biodiversity science and the subject matter has become more and more voluminous. Biodiversity has now become a multidisciplinary subject in which concepts, ideas and methodologies have been contributed by a number of other disciplines.

However, there is a dearth of comprehensive textbooks on biodiversity science /5(3). • Bioprospecting, also known as biodiversity prospecting, is the exploration of biological material for commercially valuable genetic and biochemical properties.

• In simple terms this means the investigation of living things to see how they can be commercially useful to humans.
