The new OIV collective expertise report “Functional biodiversity in the vineyard” presents an overview about functional biodiversity in vineyards and tries to illustrate the major aspects of functional biodiversity in the viticultural sector as:

  • Why enhancement of biodiversity and on what extent is beneficial for the vineyard?
  • Identify and illustrate different ecological infrastructures existing in the vineyards;
  • Identify and illustrate major mechanisms of interactions between species or group of species;
  • Identify and illustrate how these interactions can be used for the benefit of the vineyard.

This document has been drafted in the framework of Commission Viticulture (ENVIRO group: «Sustainable development and climate change») and may be consulted here.
