Making nature, shaping culture: plant biodiversity in global context


, : Making nature, shaping culture: plant biodiversity in global context. Making nature, shaping culture: plant biodiversity in global context: xiii + 261 pp.

This book addresses issues previously viewed as primarily technical concerning the germplasm debate: that is, how, what, and where to store the range of genetic materials necessary to reproduce plants. By examining Brazil, Chile, France and the USA, the authors show how different cultures respond to the decline in genetic diversity. The findings show that the quest for uniformity in foods, agriculture and environment eventually threatens everyone.
