About this book

This study was initiated and supported by the Impact Assessment and Evaluation Group of the CGIAR.


"This volume, the result of a symposium held in 1996, attempts to address the economic importance of plant genetic resources (PGRs) to improved crop productivity, an historically difficult task. . . .The book makes a sound attempt to unravel the economic contribution of PGRs to crop improvement and finds that its contribution is large. . . .Anyone concerned with PGRs and the economic impact they have on agriculture will find useful information in this book." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology
