Thanks for the invitation to join the Biodiversity Media Alliance. I just want to use my first post here to say that I work on the ex situ
conservation of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture, including crop wild relatives, but my interests extend to the conservation and sustainable use of agrobiodiversity in general, by whatever means :)
Together with my friend and colleague Jeremy Cherfas, I blog on these issues at the Agricultural Biodiversity Weblog (http://agro.biodiver.se/
) and you can also follow us on Twitter as AgroBioDiverse (http://twitter.com/AgroBioDiverse
), where we often post stuff that doesn't make it into the blog. I'll figure out a way of contributing to this new forum in a complementary way, or at any rate in a way that minimizes duplication with those efforts.
I'm looking forward to our discussions.
