New Aspects of Meat Quality (Second Edition): From Genes to Ethics, Woodhead Publishing Series in Food Science, Technology and Nutrition, 2022, Pages 533-557

Insects are becoming an increasingly attractive option as a sustainable food source, both for humans and animals. This chapter covers this growing area of interest in the research community as well as the challenges of farming and harvesting insects for food.
Climate adaptation and mitigation strategies aim at strengthening existing food systems and infrastructure of agro-ecosystems, to make them more resilient to the effects of climate-led adversities.
Legumes offer a wide range of benefits in addition to improving food security within many regions of the world.  Grain legumes particularly offer benefits as presented in this chapter.
The goal of global food security will be achieved only by improving the qualitative and quantitative traits of crops through exploitation of metabolic pathways involving advanced analytical tools and technologies.

It is necessary to explore agriculture’s intellectual horizon, because our unexamined, ethical position, may limit what agriculture’s ethical horizon defines. This book will encourage those involved in all phases of the agricultural enterprise to initiate and continue discussion of agriculture’s ethical foundation.
