A comprehensive volume on the relationships between intellectual property, biogenetic resources - in nature and as commercial products - and knowledge relating to practical applications of these resources, including traditional knowledge. The book delves into how these three topics relate to conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, benefit sharing from commercial use of biodiversity, biotechnological innovation and technology transfer, agriculture, food security and nutrition, rural development, and health and international equity. Includes case studies from India and Kenya that assess how far such countries may harness their natural endowments to develop their economies and the affect on conservation and sustainable use.
