Agriculture, Biodiversity and Markets.

Livelihoods and Agroecology in Comparative Perspective
Edited by Stewart Lockie ,  David Carpenter

A book which explores the relationships between the exploitation and conservation of agricultural biodiversity and the livelihoods of agricultural communities, and evaluate the capacity of national and multilateral institutions and policy settings to support the protection and capture by communities of agrobiodiversity values.

The book takes a comparative approach, drawing on empirical case studies from across the developed and developing worlds. In doing so, it shows how global trade and multilateral institutions bring otherwise disparate communities together in networks that exploit and/or preserve agrobiodiversity and other resources.
