Dr Mark Chapman

Associate Professor, University of Southampton

We rely on a surprisingly narrow amount of genetic diversity (both in terms of the range of crops, and the varieties of each) for our food. I will discuss how our understanding of evolutionary processes more generally can lead to conclusions (or at least hypotheses!) about why this is. I will also discuss our growing understanding of so-called ‘underutilised’ or ‘forgotten’ crops.
