For example, photosynthesizing plants helped to increase the oxygen content of the atmosphere (see below). ) At the global level, too, resources become limited in relationship to the number of organisms and the demand they place on resources. For example, the more than seven billion humans living on Earth in 2013 were equivalent to about 350 billion kg of matter (at 50 kg per person)—matter that is temporarily unavailable to other organisms. And this does not include the resources in crops, domestic animals, and human-made capital, such as buildings, cars, and roads—but I don’t know if this calculation has been attempted.

The absurdity of continuing our current rate of growth is shown by the following calculation. 2 percent and there were about 4640 people per km2 of land in the world. 53 × 1012 m2, it would take only 448 years for there to be one million people per km2 —that is, one person per every square meter of land in the world, which is obviously not sustainable, no matter how you define it. 012 t = 448 years In more personal terms, this presents humans with a dramatic choice—we cannot have a long average lifespan (low DR), a high BR, and a stable population size at same time (Cohen 1995:18).

I illustrate this for three topics important for crop improvement: yield and yield stability and narrow versus wide adaptation, collaboration between farmers and scientists, and genetically engineered crop varieties. Similarities and differences among farmers, among plant breeders, and between farmers and breeders can often be accounted for by similarities and differences in their experiences of biophysical reality—that is, the germplasm and the growing environments they have worked with; their experiences of social reality, including social and institutional settings; and the way they create new knowledge as influenced by preexisting knowledge, technology, and practice.
