Description

The global population is growing at an alarming rate and is projected to reach over 8 billion people by 2025. By the year 2040 it could hit 9 billion and by 2100 it could reach 11 billion. This, coupled with increased urbanization, consumerism and climate change could put tremendous pressure on the planet’s natural resource base. Our food and agricultural systems, in countless ways, depend on the plants, animals and micro-organisms that surround them.
