Books: Lesser and Under-Utilised plant resources
Abstract: Plant genetic resources are key components of global diversity from which humanity derives most of its food, medicines and industrial products. They ensure the world’s food security and directly and indirectly and they support the livelihoods of every person on earth. Both the wild and domesticated components of plant genetic resources have been used. Less-known and under-utilized plant resources are among those plants which have either become neglected in the course of time or whose potential has not yet been realized. 

‘Lesser-known and under-utilized plant resources’ is a photographic guide to the potential that present the lesser-known and under-utilized plant resources worldwide. 233 colour photographs illustrate 158 plants from 69 families and highlight vital information like their nutritional, industrial and medicinal values including their commercial potential.
