Preserving the existence value of biodiversity

Programs with this objective are more common for wild biodiversity rather than agricultural biodiversity conservation, due to higher ratio of existence to use values with the former as compared with the latter. However, it is likely to be important in agricultural biodiversity conservation as well, particularly in the preservation of unknown species that have the potential to be useful in future applications. Programs, which involve the conservation of ecosystems and evolutionary processes, have the advantage of allowing for the conservation of unknown as well as known species. By protecting a diverse set of ecosystems and their functions, presumably a wide range of diversity of unknown species will also be maintained.
