Dr. Jimmy Smith, director-general of the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), based in Nairobi, has indicated that the institute is at the core of plans to establish the world's first livestock gene bank. "There are many gene banks for crops around the world and these gene banks have held (in trust) for use of the world some of the main and the important crop varieties and their wild relatives

The first ecological engineering (EE) experiments in Vietnam were carried out in Cailay district.  We collaborated with villagers to populated the bunds surrounding rice fields with nectar flowering plants instead of spraying them with herbicides. We found that natural enemies in the EE field increased significantly.

With fewer than a dozen flowering plants accounting for 80 percent of humanity’s caloric intake out of 300,000 species, people need to tap unused plants to feed the world in the near future, claims Cornell plant geneticist Susan McCouch in the Comment feature of the July 4 issue of Nature.

"People need to tap unused plants to feed the world in the near future," says Cornell University plant geneticist Susan McCouch in a commentary article in the July 4 issue of the journal Nature. According to McCouch, the biodiversity stored in plant gene banks coupled with advances in genetics and plant breeding may be the key to meet the demands for more food in the face of climate change, soil degradation, and water and land shortages.

An international research team led by plant biologist Sean Cutler at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), has found a new drought-protecting compound that could become a powerful crop protection tool. Named "quinabactin" by the researchers, the compound was found to mimic abscisic acid (ABA), a naturally occurring stress hormone that helps plants cope with drought conditions.
