Brazil has a relatively long history of science and technology, and the current leftist government of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva continues to prioritize scientific and technological development in the country. Successes in the agricultural, energy and engineering (e.g., aeronautics) sectors reflect its scientific strength. Brazil's terrestrial biodiversity, with numerous diverse biomes including the Cerrado, Amazon rainforest, Pantanal wetlands, Caatinga region, and Araucaria and Atlantic forests, is also unrivaled in the South American continent and probably elsewhere. This combination of natural and scientific resources gives the country great potential to promote biotechnology.
