About this book

Including keynote invited papers from the Third International Crop Science Congree held in Hamburg, Germany in August 2000, this text offers students and research workers alike a concise overview of the major issues confronting crop science today.


"Containing 20 invited chapters from the Third International Crop Science Congress held in Hamburg in August of 2000, this work attempts to address the contributions that crop science can add to the ability to sustainably feed a growing world population. After providing an overview of the constraints imposed by scarce natural resources, articles focus on biotic and abiotic stress in crops and cropping systems from the molecular to the system level. Further articles look at how regional differences in gene populations and biological diversity in agricultural ecosystems are crucial traits for sustainable productions systems and explore the potential of new technologies. Also included are the Declaration of Hamburg, in which crop scientists express concern about the role of science and society in sustainable food production, as well as a contribution from UN's Food and Agricultural Organization discussing crop science and ethics."--SciTech Book News
