Description - Women and Plants by Patricia L Howard

These in-depth case studies from Latin America, Asia, Africa, Europe and North America provides a state-of-the-art overview of the gender dimensions of people-plant relations. The contributors reveal the crucial role of women in plant biodiversity management and conservation, the influence of gender relations on the ways in which local people understand, manage and conserve biodiversity, and the importance of continued access to biological resources for rural women's status and welfare. They highlight the gender biases evident in much contemporary scientific research, policy and development practice. And they seek to contribute to a number of important debates around gender-environment relations.
