A discussion meeting was held at the Royal Society in London in December 1996 which brought together leading scientists concerned with natural resource management to make a critical assessment of the production potential of the available land. This book is a product of the meeting and describes in detail current pressures on land and water resources, the effects of climate on productivity, the need for crop improvement, better management of water, soil and nutrients, economic factors and environmental limitations. A set of conclusions is drawn concerning our ability to feed the world population and the steps which must be taken to ensure that we achieve this aim.
