The 34 compiled essays in this book explore "the diverse ways that home gardens are created and managed by peoples throughout the tropical world and how they contribute to the conservation and sustained use of agricultural biodiversity." From theoretical principles to real case studies, we see many surprising ways in which home gardeners can and do contribute to a rich plant heritage and its survival. Focusing on peoples throughout the tropical world, and including case studies from Cuba, Ethiopia, Ghana, Venezuela, and Vietnam, Home Gardens and Agrobiodiversity explains the ways both rural and urban households manage home-garden diversity in ways that enable them to cope with the change and adapt their crops to new situations.
