Where and when did Man start to cultivate plants?
From the Neolithic Age to the 21st century, travelling through all five continents, from the discovery of the first edible plants to genetic modifications in the laboratory, this book recounts the history of Man and his food. It retraces the major steps in domesticating plants and animals used to feed Man since he gave up living entirely from predation.
The possible orientation of new domestications and above all the selection of species in the 21st century given the serious ecological problems is raised, as is the desired move towards a new balance between plant and livestock productions.
