Biodiversity is in massive decline, mainly due to increasing anthropogenic pressure on ecosystems. An inventory of living organisms is urgently needed to ensure that measures to preserve biodiversity are effective. The most promising technique at the beginning of the 21st century goes beyond the visible spectrum, through the laboratory.
Invasive species are the third most important cause of biodiversity decline worldwide. According to the IUCN, they are responsible for half of all known extinctions and pose a threat to almost a third of rare terrestrial species. By identifying invasive species and how they develop, appropriate management can be put in place.
A major cause of biodiversity loss is the intensification of agriculture. However, the agricultural sector is dependent on it and will have to adapt its practices in the coming years to preserve its resources.
