“The wisdom and hard work of millions of farmers since the advent of agriculture are finally acknowledged and explained in this landmark book, which is a must-read for every student or practicing agronomist, ecologist, environmentalist, and conservationist. The authors need to be congratulated for a detailed account of the value of and the need for conserving traditional varieties, which is the key element for transforming the present dead-end agriculture into a sustainable model based on diverse genetic crop makeup, complemented by diverse cropping systems.”—Hans R. Herren, Co Chair IAASTD (Hans R. Herren)

“A comprehensive, wide-ranging, and authoritative text by a virtual ‘dream team’ of scholars on the subject of on-farm crop genetic diversity. A great resource for students and researchers around the globe who are concerned with the future of agriculture and food security.”—Christine Padoch, Center for International Forestry Research (Christine Padoch)
