Media reviews

"For plant breeders, scientists concerned with genetic resource conservation, and research managers in agriculture and biodiversity, a collection of papers on approaches that contribute to broadening the genetic base of crops--a prerequisite to the commitment by World Food Summit leaders to halve the number of undernourished people by 2015. A number of the papers describe efforts at large-scale development of locally adapted populations from unimproved or exotic sources through long-term, population-based approaches. Others reflect recent developments in participatory plant breeding and in situ conservation of genetic resources."--SciTech Book News
