New journal launched on food security

The International Society for Plant Pathology and the STM publisher, Springer, have launched a new journal titled  Food Security: the Science, Sociology and Economics of Food Production and Access to Food.

The first issue of the journal is freely available online, and it features a foreward by the Norman Borlaug ( Nobel Peace Prize Laureate).

There is a paper that addresses the question: “Why does famine persist in Africa?” There is another paper “The politics of plants” that looks at the issue of biofuels, as well as other papers authored by notable CGIAR scientists.

This is an issue that is well worth looking at.
