Gadgil, Madhav (2000) Defining biodiversity resources. In: Current Science, 79 (3). pp. 280-282.
The scope of the Biological Diversity Bill, tabled in the monsoon 2000 session of the Indian Parliament is excessively wide covering all biological resources. Instead it should focus on diversity related end-uses such as drugs, industrial enzymes, cosmetics, dyestuffs, plant growth regulators, emulsifiers, oleoresins and genes used for improving crops and livestock through breeding and genetic intervention. It should seek to regulate collection and movement of such biodiversity resources and knowledge of their use out of limited local areas regardless of whether local people or outsiders serve as the collectors at the field level.
