The current rate of biodiversity erosion is unprecedented in human history. However, in the context of increasing shocks and crises, biodiversity is essential for ecosystem resilience, food security and health. It is a valuable heritage and common good that must be preserved and restored, both for its own sake and for the ecosystem services people derive from it. INRAE ​​​​research allows to better describe it and understand its dynamics, as well as to mobilize knowledge to propose solutions to stop its erosion and promote its restoration.
