    Another major source of agrobiodiversity is the tens of thousands of species that are grown in a pre- or semi-domesticated state on home gardens or similar polycultures. As noted above, many thousands more are wild harvested to supplement farm household incomes. Over the last two decades, the importance of conserving genetic resources has received increasing attention. In this context the role of home gardens as repositories of biological diversity has been acknowledged but still a comprehensive, interdisciplinary investigation of their agro-biodiversity is lacking.

    Combining approaches leads to a more efficient and robust estimation of the private value of agrobiodiversity in home gardens. Findings can be used to identify those farming communities, which would benefit most from agri-environmental schemes that support agrobiodiversity maintenance, at least public cost." Authors' abstract.   The book critically examines the role of agrobiodiversity in school gardens, along with its contribution to diversifying diets, promoting healthy eating habits and improving nutrition among schoolchildren and their families. Other benefits are explored that relate to climate change adaptation, eco-literacy and greening school spaces.
