Home gardens and agrobiodiversity
Crop Genetic Resources in European Home Gardens the proceedings of a Workshop on home gardens that was organized in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 3-4 October 2007 by the ECPGR In situ and On-farm Conservation Network is now available for downloading on Bioversity International’s website. The opportunity to convene nearly fifty scientists working on home gardens in a regional meeting was based on the awareness that home gardens probably constitute the richest agro-ecosystems in Europe in terms of genetic diversity of agricultural crops. I can’t help noticing, this being the third ECPGR publication I have posted on, that there is a complete absence on relevant information from an Irish PGR context. Surely a missed opportunity. Does anyone know why?
