About this book

This book is an edited compilation of papers from the Symposium on the Economics of Valuation and Conservation of Genetic Resources for Agriculture held in Rome in May 1996. It addresses some of the key issues involved in the estimation of the economic value of conserving genetic resources for agriculture.

"The book makes a sound attempt to unravel the economic contribution of PGRs to crop improvement and finds that its contrubution is large. Anyone concerned with PGRs and the economic impact they have on agriculture will find useful information in this book." -- E. Charles Brummer, The Quarterly Review of Books, Vol 76, March 2001


Modelling the role of genetic resources in plant breeding; empirical studies - plant breeding and field diversity; empirical studies - breeding values; property rights; the implication of development in biotechnology.
