Abstract

The study of biodiversity is commonly carried out through different approaches, such as those at the level of genetics, species, communities/ecosystems, and landscapes. The group of geneticists, geobotanists and landscape researchers of the Department of agriculture, food and environmental sciences has been dealing with this topic for many years. In this chapter, the principal research lines followed during the last thirty years are briefly described in order to put the best results achieved and the future targets into evidence. For the research group in geobotany, the main fields of research involve phytosociology, syntaxonomy, vegetation mapping, species and habitat conservation, ethnobotany and the ecology of agroecosystems. Regarding genetic biodiversity, the research carried out in plant genetics and breeding has dealt with the collection, evaluation and molecular characterization of some populations of the grass pea in the Marche region. Concerning the study of biodiversity at the landscape level, the research carried out has focused on the rural landscape and has dealt with the role of geomatics, robotics and new technologies in analyzing spatial heterogeneity, the importance of a bionomics approach to the landscape and its interfaces, and the integration of the landscape into the economic development and sustainable growth.
