Seedmap.org: An online portal for seeds, biodiversity and food

Although we rarely think about seeds, nine out of every 10 bites we eat today start as seeds. And seeds are under serious threat. Our planet lost 75% of its food-plant genetic diversity between 1900 and 2000, and 75% of our food is derived from only 12 plant and five animal species.

Seedmap.org is a valuable teaching and advocacy tool and reference point on seeds, biodiversity, and food, complete with news, resources, campaigns and an interactive seed map.

To access the interactive map, and read though many individual case studies, follow this link: http://map.seedmap.org/. For information on how to best use the map, go to this page: http://seedmap.org/seedmap/

There is also a poster of the map for download. You can find it here: http://seedmap.org/wp-content/uploads/Where-does-our-food-come-from_.png

The Seed Map is a project of USC Canada and the ETC Group.
