The preservation of biodiversity is an essential part of the global concept for sustainable development. Ecologically and socially acceptable management of biodiversity is a prerequisite for the preservation of the wealth and productivity of natural ecological systems, and maintainance of the cultural differences in the relationship between man and nature. The Agenda 21 adopted at the Rio Summit in 1992 calls for concerted action by governments, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and the scientific community for the preservation of biodiversity.
