Preservation of biodiversity is mainly imperative base for food security. The diversity in food supply is vital for health. A range of varied food sources protect against climatic disasters, and a diversity in plants and animals provide a rich source of essential secondary metabolites as therapeutic compounds. Various efforts to preserve and ways to safe-guard the agricultural biodiversity particularly with reference to sustainable food production and how to protect domesticated and wild crops, along with traditional less known foods which are on the verge of extinction etc, would be briefed in this communication, as all these are essential for food security. It is also imperative to make a glance at using biodiversity for food, dietary diversity, better nutrition and health.
