About this book

Offers a sweeping assessment of crop diversity and the potential for its preservation. Brush develops a framework for investigating biological diversity in agriculture that focuses on the knowledge and practice of farmers, and he shows how this human ecology perspective can be applied to three global issues that affect crop resources.

An original and important contribution to a timely topic. It will become THE text in the field. Michael R. Dove, Yale University; "A panoramic and insightful analysis of the nature of crop diversity and the potential for its preservation. It should find a substantial audience among the many disciplines concerned with culture, human values, and sustainability of the planet Earth." David Bates, Cornell University"
