Discovering Indigenous Treasures: Promising Indigenous Vegetables from Around the World
Li-ji Lin, et al.
Indigenous vegetables have been used for ages by local communities. However, many are underutilized because their value is not appreciated, particularly in regions where the plants are not native. This book attempts to narrow the knowledge gap. It is meant for consumers who would benefit from consuming diverse vegetables, farmers who consider growing new crops, researchers who seek to advance the frontiers of indigenous vegetables, and decision-makers who require infromation for setting rearch and development priorities.
