Genetic Time Bomb is an excellent introduction to the little-known topic of genetic diversity of food crops. The world's food supply may be seriously endangered by a dramatic decline in crop diversity. As high-yield hybrids replace traditional food crops worldwide, thousands of heirloom plant species have gone extinct, increasing the long-term possibility of famine.

Irreplaceable genetic material is being lost that may one day be needed to ward off the effects of devastating pests, diseases, or droughts. Featuring leading scientists and activists, Genetic Time Bomb looks at historic changes in agriculture, the importance of maintaining biodiversity, and the growing worldwide network of "seed savers."
