Abstract [en]

Biological diversity is an abstract, scientific concept and both evaluating its condition and, to great extent, justifying its conservation require expert knowledge. Accordingly, regulating and managing biological diversity presupposes standardization and methods for managing uncertainty. To be acted on, the concept must be promoted, passing, in this process, through various institutions, such as intergovernmental organizations and national administrations. This paper examines how the principle of biological diversity conservation is defined, focusing on the values of biological diversity and how this notion has “travelled the world”. The paper includes a study of how the principle of biological diversity was applied in a specific case of insect control in Sweden.
