NETSEED: Seed exchange networks for agrobiodiversity conservation

Duration: 
February, 2011 to January, 2014
Funding: 
Center for the Synthesis and Analysis of Biodiversity

This project is a joint effort by nineteen researchers from around the world led by Doyle McKey at the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research) in France, with the aim to study and strengthen the management of agrobiodiversity through social networks. It will devise an interdisciplinary method for analyzing how local seed systems and exchange networks impact the diversity of domesticated plants. This project is supported by CESAB, an initiative of the French Foundation for Research on Biodiversity – FRB.
