New Publication: Compendium of Methods for Assessing Agrobiodiversity


IPSI member the Platform for Agrobiodiversity Research (PAR) has developed an online compendium of methods for assessing agrobiodiversity. According to the description on their website: “Drawing on experiences from around the world, the Compendium was created to support the documentation, co-creation and sharing of knowledge about diversity and its management. The Compendium provides guidelines for the collection and analysis of data about the diversity of crops, livestock, pollinators and harvested wild plants.” It also contains a section on the “Indicators of Resilience in SEPLS”, an output of an IPSI Collaborative Activity.

The Compendium is available for download from the PAR website here.
