The level of capabilities in the science and biotechnology components of biodiversity and bioresources development has been used as a measure of the capability of a country to identify, conserve, utilize and commercialize her bioresources in a sustainable manner. The countries of the world have been classified into four categories based on the richness of their biodiversity and the level of application of biotechnology for its sustainable management as follows: (i) bioresources-poor and biotechnology-poor; (ii) bioresources-poor but biotechnology-rich; (iii) bioresources-rich but biotechnology-poor; and (iv) bioresources-rich and biotechnology-rich.
