Managing Biodiversity in Agricultural Ecosystems by Jarvis, C. Padoch and Cooper :: This book examines these various aspects of agricultural biodiversity. A number of chapters examine crop gene tic resources (chapters 1, 2, 3, 10, 11, and 16) and livestock gene tic resources (chapters 4, 5, and 17). Other chapters examine aquatic biodiversity (chapter 6), pollinator diversity (chapter 7), and soil biodiversity (chapter 8). Three chapters (9, 10, and 11) examine various aspects of the relationship between diversity and the management of pests and diseases. Chapters 12 and 13 explore farmer management of diversity in the wider context of spatial complexity and environmental and economic change. Chapter 14 looks at the contribution of diversity to diet, nutrition, and human health. Chapters 15 through 17 explore the value of genetic resources and of the ecosystem services provided by biodiversity in agricultural ecosystems.
