Can biodiversity revolutionize agroecosystems for resilience?


Discover how agroecosystems rely on biodiversity at genetic, species, and ecosystem levels for essential services like soil structure, nutrient cycling, and pollination. Uncover the resilience these systems gain from biodiversity, making them more robust against disturbances.

The video calls for a return to biodiverse and sustainable agricultural practices by integrating traditional knowledge with science. Questioning the marginalization of traditional knowledge, it advocates for its re-application in modern educational and agricultural systems for transformative change.
