Lost crops of Africa by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is an overlooked food resource in sub-Saharan Africa that has vast potential: native food plants. All in all, Africa has more than 2,000 native grains and fruits--"lost" species due for rediscovery and exploitation. This volume focuses on native cereals, dispelling myths about the nutritional value, flavor, and yield of African grains. The authors present information on where and how each grain is grown, harvested, and processed and list its benefits and limitations as a food source

Conserving biodiversity : a research agenda for development agencies : report of a panel of the Board on Science and Technology for International Development, U.S. National Research Council by National Research Council( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The loss of the earth's biological diversity is widely recognized as a critical environmental problem. That loss is most severe in developing countries, where the conditions of human existence are most difficult. Conserving biodiversity presents an agenda for research that can provide information to formulate policy and design conservation programs in the third world. The book includes discussions of research needs in the biological sciences as well as economics and anthropology, areas of critical importance to conservation and sustainable development. Although specifically directed toward development agencies, non-governmental organizations, and decisionmakers in developing nations, this volume should be of interest to all who are involved in the conservation of biological diversity

Microlivestock : little-known small animals with a promising economic future by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Microlivestock is a term coined for species that are inherently small as well as for breeds of cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs that are less than about half the size of the most common breeds. These miniature animals are seldom considered in the broad picture of livestock development, but they seem to have a promising future, especially in developing nations or wherever land is scarce. This book raises awareness of the potential of these small species, including microcattle, microsheep, various poultry, rabbits, rodents, deer, antelope, and lizards. It also strives to stimulate their introduction into animal research and economic development programs
