Summary
"This volume brings together three years of collaborative research aimed to develop a coherent, economics-based approach to policy-making in the management of biotechnology and biodiversity. It explores the economics of both the conservation of plant genetic resources for food and agriculture and the adoption of molecular biotechnology, the economics of whether or not their respective policies should be linked and, if so, how."--Jacket
