The Viking in the Wheat Field: A Scientist's Struggle to Preserve the World's Harvest
"In vivid language, Dworkin presents Skovmand's legacy as ample reason for a new generation of genetic researchers to take the cause." --"Kirkus Reviews""Susan Dworkin has found a delightful way to tell the alarming story of the fragility of the global wheat crop. She leads us expertly and enthusiastically into Bent Skovmand's strange, infrequently penetrated domain of plant breeding and international seed banks, a world in which unsung scientists search and save exotic plant germplasm to protect the staffs of life against pests, plagues and corporate raiders.
