Abstract

Biodiversity vs. donation: a different way of modelling E. Tiezzi & N. Marchettini Department of Chemical and Biosystems Sciences University of Siena, Italy. Abstract Biological evolution is characterized by a creativity of structures and species, being the product of 4,600 million years of co-evolution of interrelated complex histories, donation tends to render pieces of life the same for man's utility and therefore works in an opposite direction to the history of our planet. The models of genetic engineering are based on molecular reductionism, the absence of time (they are reversible) and a hidden ideology (the so called "pensiero unico"): the sole purpose of utility to man. The development of evolutionary models and of eco-informatics to study the complexity of evolving ecosystems is needed to respond to the ongoing attack on nature by modern technologies, our insane manner of producing and consuming and the hidden ideology of homologation to "pensiero unico".
