Synopsis

Synopsis

Focusing on peoples throughout the tropical world, and including case studies from Cuba, Ethiopia, Ghana, Venezuela, and Vietnam, Home Gardens and Agrobiodiversity explains how both rural and urban households manage home garden diversity in ways that enable them to cope with change, and adapt their crops to new situations.

After introducing theoretical and methodological aspects of studying home garden culture, scientists and conservationists present case studies of ways in which garden practices in tropical areas contribute to agricultural biodiversity and sustainability. Eyzaguirre and Linares conclude that home gardens play key roles as both cultural and biological spaces.
