About this book

Takes a global look at the latest tools farmers use to create, nurture, and preserve the evolutionary and adaptive potential of a wide range of plants, animals, and other factors associated with biodiversity. They include the most recent research and developments in the maintenance of local diversity at the genetic, species, and ecosystem levels for crops, livestock, aquatic resources, associated pollinators, and below-grown microorganisms. The volume also features perspectives from social and environmental scientists and case studies showing how farmers around the world use alternative approaches to manage biodiversity and enhance the stability, resilience, and productivity of their farms.
