Synopsis: Vividly illustrating the riches of the endangered tropical rainforests, this book stresses the significance of losing whole populations of wild crops harboring potentially valuable genes.

"This splendid book does much to remind us of the most significant legacy of the tropical rainforests. As repositories of germ plasm, sources of new crops and natural products, living laboratories where human ingenuity derives sustenance from the wild, these ancient forests serve not only the living but all the generations yet unborn. A vital book."--Wade Davis, author of The Serpent and the Rainbow
