Literature review "agrobiodiversity and resilience to climate change"

Diversification of agricultural production from the genetic to the landscape level is often claimed as a possible measure to better adapt to climate change. However, the role of agrobiodiversity at these different levels of biological organization remains a matter of debate. This project will summarize the information related to this topic with a focus on the German situation in the form of a written report.
