http://www.sciencemag.org/content/338/6103/45.summaryDarwinian Agriculture How Understanding Evolution Can Improve Agriculture by R. Ford Denison Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 2012. 268 pp. $39.50, £27.95. ISBN 9780691139500.
Denison argues that current efforts to improve agriculture are “risking failure” if core principles of Darwinian thinking are ignored. Noting that rapid evolution in weeds, pests, and pathogens is already well documented, he explores other terrain, offering fresh perspectives on how to improve crop breeding and agronomic practices. He examines food security and sustainable farming issues through an evolutionary lens, probing and searching for missed research opportunities that could enhance crop yields.
