The twenty-five articles collected here all deal with some phase of man's relation to the plants that sustain him, and together they emphasize the biological, physical, social, and economic factors that influence crop production practices. Arranged in five groups, the readings summarize scientific research into the origins of agriculture, the physiology of living plants, the environment for plant growth, agricultural production, and the availability of food throughout the world. Each group is introduced through an essay that places the readings in context. A useful volume for the libraries of agricultural specialists. With many black and white photo reproductions plus numerous illustrations.
