  1. “Global Legal Constraints: How the International System Fails Small-Scale Farmers and Agricultural Biodiversity….” Fifty pages of dense argument quite ignoring half a Century of CGIAR success in preserving agricultural biodiversity and addressing the needs of small-scale farming. While ignoring the CGIAR, Bragdon claims: “Agroecological movements such as Via Campesina have been enormously effective in many respects…” Entirely misplaced praise: agroecology is junk science that ignores real ecology.

  2. Hi, Luigi and Jeremy . Thanks for the shout-out to my paper on wild peanut hybrids : ) ! I always appreciate a good science blog!

    I’m happy that peanut was already domesticated and we don’t have to do it again, haha. It’s pretty quick to cross new wild peanut hybrids to good peanut cultivars.

    I hope that more of my papers make it on your blog, it’s fun to see how you summarize them : ). I need to do more ag. biodiversity related work ;p.
