Assessing agrobiodiversity: A compendium of methods

Drawing on experiences from projects around the world, PAR has developed a Compendium of methods for assessing agrobiodiversity. The Compendium provides guidelines for the collection and analysis of information about the diversity of crops, livestock, pollinators and harvested wild plants. The aim of the Compendium is to support the documentation, co-creation and sharing of knowledge about agrobiodiversity and its management.

We thank our colleagues and friends who shared their methods, data examples, photos and comments. Their contributions made the Compendium a special guideline for exploring diversity in agricultural, forest and pastoral landscapes with local communities.
