This new book looks at the ecological consequences that sometimes arise with various methods of increasing crop productivity. The book also presents agroecological approaches to crop improvement and productivity from several perspectives. With contributions from leading scientists in agricultural biology and young researchers, the book
• provides detailed discussions of the environmental impact of crop agriculture
• discusses new ways of improving cultivated plants
• suggests ways to improve crop productivity using hybrids
• evaluates different methods of inducing hereditary variability
• presents studies on the conservation and restoration of biotic diversity
• looks at alternative energy sources
• considers other problems related to sustainable agriculture
