Abstract

The article offers information about the resources of bioprospecting which includes the plants, animals, and products of the land. Furthermore, this literature also presents information about the claims made by bioprospectors on biological resources. These claims are made on two sources, which include the land that is inhabited by indigenous and traditional peoples, as well as the resources of rivers and seas, and bodies of women, indigenous and genetically isolated peoples, and people with disabilities and chronic illnesses.
