interactive tour of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault

8. The Global Crop Diversity Trust [pdf] /
Amidst the backdrop of climate change and staggering world population growth, many agronomists, scientists, and government leaders are concerned about both food security and availability. The Global Crop Diversity Trustis intimately concerned with such matters, and their primary goal is to maintain and preserve crop diversity through a variety of creative and Innovative techniques. Information on the site is divided into five primary sections, which include "Crop Diversity", Programmes", and "Media Room". The "Crop Diversity" area is a good place to begin, here queries such as "What is crop diversity?" and "How is diversity conserved?" are given concise answers. As with many of the other materials on the site, Spanish and French translations of these writings are available as well.
In keeping with this theme, visitors can also take in an interactive tour of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. Scholars, journalists, and the generally curious will want to click on over to the "Publications" area. Here they will find copies of the Trust's annual reports, press releases, and video clips which describe the different facets of their work. [KMG]
