Although there are more than 15 million species of plants, animals and microbes on earth, more than 90% of the world food supply comes from just 15 crop species and 8 livestock species. One way to augment the human food supply is to increase the diversity of plant and animal species used as food. This book provides stimulating and timely suggestions about expanding the world food supply to include a variety of minilivestock. It suggests a wide variety of small animals as nutritious food. These animals include arthropods (insects, earthworms, snails, frogs), and various rodents. The major advantage of minilivestock is that they do not have to be fed on grains thus saving many crop species for human consumption. The book suggests technologies for harvesting these small livestock
