Digitising biopiracy? The global governance of plant genetic resources in the age of digital sequencing information.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Third World Quarterly. Aug2022, Vol. 43 Issue 8, p1970-1987. 18p.


Abstract: Historical concerns over the exploitation of the Global South's genetic biodiversity framed the importance of creating global governance mechanisms to ensure fair access to and benefit-sharing of genetic resources worldwide. The Convention on Biologica...

Biopiracy: Abolish Corporate Hijacking of Indigenous Medicinal Entities.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Scientific World Journal. 2/19/2021, p1-8. 8p.

Abstract: Biopiracy as "a silent disease" is hardly detectable because it does not leave traces frequently. The corporate hijacking of food is the most important health hazard in this era; giant commercial enterprises are using intellectual property rights to pa...

Combating biopiracy in Australia: Will a disclosure requirement in the Patents Act 1990 be more effective than the current regulations?

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of World Intellectual Property. Mar2018, Vol. 21 Issue 1/2, p15-31. 17p.


Abstract: Genetic and biochemical resources have the ability to provide considerable economic, social and environmental benefits to a nation. Traditional knowledge of these natural resources is extensive. Biopiracy occurs when commercial actors appropriate tradi...

Bioprospecting cold-adapted plant growth promoting microorganisms from mountain environments.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Applied Microbiology & Biotechnology. Jan2019, Vol. 103 Issue 2, p643-657. 15p.

Abstract: Mountain soils are challenging environments for all kinds of living things, including plants and microorganisms. Many cold-adapted microorganisms colonizing these extreme soils play important roles as promoters of plant growth and development; for that...

Animal abuse, biotechnology and species justice.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Theoretical Criminology. Aug2018, Vol. 22 Issue 3, p363-383. 21p.

Abstract: Generally, in the modern, western world, conceptualizations of the natural environment are associated with what nature can offer us—an anthropocentric perspective whereby humans treat nature and all its biotic components as ‘natural resources’. When na...

Identifying and Preventing Biopiracy in Australia: patent landscapes and legal geographies for plants with Indigenous Australian uses.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Australian Geographer. Sep2017, Vol. 48 Issue 3, p311-331. 21p.

Abstract: There are legal and moral imperatives to protect biological resources and the ‘traditional knowledge’ associated with them. These imperatives derive from complex legal geographies: international law (such as the Convention on Biological Diversity and t...

The botanical explorer's legacy: a promising bioprospecting tool.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Drug Discovery Today. May2017, Vol. 22 Issue 5, p757-760. 4p.

Abstract: Records about the traditional uses of medicinal plants can be considered useful in bioprospecting (i.e., the search for new active agents or lead structures in nature). Several sources like Egyptian papyri, early modern herbals and pharmacopoeias have ...

Exploring the bioprospecting and biotechnological potential of white-rot and anaerobic Neocallimastigomycota fungi: peptidases, esterases, and lignocellulolytic enzymes.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Applied Microbiology & Biotechnology. Apr2017, Vol. 101 Issue 8, p3089-3101. 13p.

Abstract: Fungi constitute an invaluable natural resource for scientific research, owing to their diversity; they offer a promising alternative for bioprospecting, thus contributing to biotechnological advances. For a long time, extensive information has been ex...

Integrating endemic medicinal plants into the global value chains: the ecological degradation challenges and opportunities

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Heliyon, Vol 6, Iss 9, Pp e04970- (2020)

Abstract: Though innovations for sustainable management of natural resources have emerged over time, the rising demand for nature based health solutions and integration of endemic flora into global value chains could have adverse impacts on ecosystems. The ecolo...

Implementation of Access and Benefit Sharing in Indonesia: Review and Case Studies

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika, Vol 25, Iss 1, Pp 35-45 (2019)


Abstract: The Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS) was adopted in 2010, but parties have been facing many challenges to implement the protocol. The objective of this paper was to provide information on the current status of the ABS implementation ...
