How Laws to Protect Biodiversity Backfired on Scientists Trying to Save It - The Wire


The Wire
The legal fences around biodiversity research are so strong that it even thwarts basic research and international collaborations. The remedy, the signatories have argued, is a separate agreement to ensure fewer restrictions on academic research.

During the 1990s NRI staff undertook a major project investigating the role of the wind in the airborne dispersal of the fungal pathogens (Mycosphaerella spp) causing Sigatoka diseases in banana and plantain. Sigatoka diseases cause major reductions in fruit quality and plant yield, and this investigation involved studies of the dispersal of airborne spores within and outside infected plantations. The results of fieldwork in Uganda and Costa Rica
