Food first : beyond the myth of scarcity by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )
34 editions published between 1928 and 1991 in 4 languages and held by 1,581 libraries worldwide
Une entreprise de réfutation point par point, sous forme de questions-réponses, de l'argument selon lequel la faim dans le monde résulte d'une croissance incontrôlée de la population et d'une production agricole insuffisante. Les auteurs expliquent comment le système actuel, basé uniquement sur des critères de rentabilité, aboutit à la suralimentation des riches et à la sous-alimentation des pauvres. Comme alternative, ils suggèrent entre autres l'application du principe de l'auto-suffisance de façon à ce que les besoins des populations locales passent avant les impératifs du commerce et du profit. Un des livres les plus importants des dernières années sur le sujet

Seeds of time ( visu )
4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 259 libraries worldwide
A perfect storm is brewing as agriculture pioneer Cary Fowler races against time to protect the future of our food. Seed banks around the world are crumbling, crop failures are producing starvation and rioting, and the accelerating effects of climate change are affecting farmers globally. Communities of indigenous Peruvian farmers are already suffering those effects, as they try desperately to save over 1,500 varieties of native potato in their fields. But with little time to waste, both Fowler and the farmers embark on passionate and personal journeys that may save the one resource we cannot live without: our seeds
TEDTalks : Cary Fowler - One Seed at a Time, Protecting the Future of Food ( visu )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 165 libraries worldwide
In the U.S. in the 1800s, farmers were growing more than 7,000 named varieties of apples. Today, 6,800 of those varieties are extinct, never to be tasted again. The problem goes far beyond boredom with one's choice of apples in the supermarket. Losing biodiversity means there's a greater chance that staple crops now grown will be unable to stand up to climate change or new strains of disease in the future. In this TEDTalk agriculturalist Cary Fowler takes viewers inside the Svalbard Global Seed Vault to explain how the seeds stored there, collected from around the world, act as a safeguard against global famine
Unnatural selection : technology, politics, and plant evolution by Cary Fowler( Book )
7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
Seeds on ice : Svalbard and the Global Seed Vault by Cary Fowler( Book )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
Closer to the North Pole than to the Arctic Circle, on an island in a remote Norwegian archipelago, lies a vast global seed bank buried within a frozen mountain. At the end of a 130-meter long tunnel chiseled out of solid stone is a room filled with humanity's precious treasure, the largest and most diverse seed collection ever assembled: more than a half billion seeds containing the world's most prized crops, a safeguard against catastrophic starvation. The Global Seed Vault, a visionary model of international collaboration, is the brainchild of Cary Fowler, renowned scientist, conservationist, and biodiversity advocate. In SEEDS ON ICE, Fowler tells for the first time the comprehensive inside story of how the "doomsday seed vault" came to be, while the breathtaking photographs offer a stunning guided tour not only of the private vault, but of the windswept beauty and majesty of Svalbard and the enchanting community of people in Longyearbyen. With growing evidence that unchecked climate change will seriously undermine food production and threaten the diversity of crops around the world, SEEDS ON ICE offers a personal and passionate reminder that we shouldn't take our reliance on the world of plants for granted--and that, in a very real sense, the future of the human race rides on this frozen and indispensable biodiversity
