Recent decades have witnessed a dramatic shift from public to private sector agricultural research in many developed countries. Developments in plant breeding and biotechnology, for example, have created profitable opportunities for private investment. However, new issues, such as intellectual property rights, have arisen as a consequence. This book discusses these and related issues.
