Whom? scientific community (also capacity building: future  scientists) ‐Papers, chapters, books, etc. scientists) Papers chapters books etc Who will conserve biodiversity in practice? Also launched at XXXII Brazilian Congress Society in general of Soil Science, August 2 ‐7, 2009,  Fortaleza.  Science must be “translated” to society It was distributed in all schools of  the benchmark area and in schools  p of other Municipalities: free.
