BMC Ecology and Evolution is calling for submissions to our Collection on Agroecology: protecting, restoring, and promoting biodiversity.
The global food system is the predominant driver of biodiversity loss. Food System Impacts on Biodiversity Loss, a 2021 Chatham House report, supported by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and Compassion in World Farming, estimates that agriculture alone is the main threat to 86% of the 28,000 species at risk of extinction. To protect, restore and promote biodiversity, there is an increasing need to transition towards more sustainable and resilient agri-food systems.
