"There is a directionality to it that takes the reader on a comprehensive journey from the emergence of agriculture 10,000 or so years ago to the cutting edge of modern crop and animal sciences, fields in which scholars grapple with the complex relationships among biodiversity, domestication, and the sustainability of the food production system. Biodiversity in Agriculture is a volume that should be read by graduate students in both the natural and social sciences, because it demonstrates the value of inter-disciplinary approaches to scholarship."
Gary S. Kleppel, University at Albany for BioScience
"The editors did an admirable job of weaving together 28 contributions of distinct thematic and technical focus into a unified book. Their introduction presents 10 unanswered research questions, which capture the breadth of the volume and guide their selection of the chapters that follow. This is an ambitious book of high scholarly merit. It will be particularly well received by agricultural scientists interested in domestication and evolution under human management."
Soroush Parsa, International Center for Tropical Agriculture, for the Quarterly Review of Biology
Bringing together research from a range of fields including anthropology, archaeology and ecology, this book addresses key questions relating to agriculture. It highlights how these topics can be applied to our understanding of contemporary agriculture, its long-term sustainability and the development of new crops and varieties.
