Summary
  • "This collection of largely unpublished, in-depth case studies drawn from Latin America, Asia, Africa, Europe and North America aims to increase our understanding of the importance of women and gender relations in plant biodiversity management and conservation. It intends to provide a state-of-the-art overview of the concepts, relationships and contexts that help to explain the relatively hidden gender dimensions of people-plant relations."
  • "The contributors come from a range of disciplines including ethnobotany, geography, agronomy, anthropology, plant breeding, nutrition, development economics and women's studies. They demonstrate how crucial women are to plant genetic resource management and conservation at household, village, and community levels; and how gender relations have a strong influence on the ways in which local people understand, manage, and conserve biodiversity. Continued access to plant biodiversity is crucial to rural women's status and welfare, and their motivations therefore are a principal driving force countering processes of genetic erosion."
  • "The contributors highlight the gender biases evident in much contemporary scientific research, policy and development practice relating to biodiversity management. And they seek to contribute to a number of important debates, including the determinants of genetic erosion, the significance of gender in ethnobotanical knowledge systems, traditional intellectual property rights systems and women's entitlements therein, and ecofeminist and other debates about the nature of gender-environment relations."--BOOK JACKET
