Abstract

The maintenance of biological diversity is of importance for various reasons (genetic resources, ecosystem resilience, source of income, cultural heritage). The international trade in plants from wild source may have negative consequences for biodiversity (habitat alteration, introduction of invasive alien species, demise of wild populations). National and international legislation, among which the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of wild fauna and flora are of worldwide validity, was developed to protect wild species and their environment and to regulate access and trade. A number of cases show that it must be possible to use botanical resources in horticultural trade in a sustainable way
