Where Our Food Crops Come From

The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) conducted a vast study of global agriculture and how foods that originated in one region ended up sustaining different regions, both by exported agriculture and by exported food. Part of that study is a map that shows where those foods were once native plants. At the site, the map is interactive and at the top of the page you’ll find links to information specific regions and links to broader articles about the findings. You could end up spending the rest of the week learning about global food systems. -via Digg
