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
