    How Having the Food We Want When We Want It Threatens Our Food Supply and Our Future
    By Rob Dunn 323 pp. Little, Brown & Company. $27.

    Toward the end of his engrossing book, Rob Dunn, a biologist at North Carolina State University, meditates on the humility with which his colleagues and forebears have preserved the planet’s botany: “Protected by these people keeping guard at the levees, our civilization’s position is one in which we are behind the levee but below the level of the water. It is a humble position, humbler by the day.” Cresting the levees are the diseases and pests that threaten to end modern agriculture. Dunn shows how we have been spared catastrophe by legions of unsung heroes and heroines working across a range of crops, from cassava to cocoa to rubber to wheat.

    Keep reading, it's fascinating: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/14/b...atel.html?_r=2
