Content: Agrobiodiversity is a discipline that has come into being as a result of the worldwide discussion of biodiversity. Many preparatory studies on the subject exist, but there are few concepts as to precisely what it entails. Those preparatory studies from the area of plant genetic resources (that has already developed to a compact field of study) are examined here for their relevance to agrobiodiversity. The background study for the present publication is the author's assessment paper "Evaluation of ex situ and in situ methods of maintaining plant genetic resources, including first steps toward solutions and necessity for action". This evaluation was prepared as material for a project prepared for the German Bundestag. This project "Gene technology, breeding and biodiversity" is available in published form.

From the assessment paper one of the first books has been prepared in German language covering the interrelationship of agrobiodiversity and plant genetic resources (1998).
