For this week’s DB, please read the chapter on agriculture in your textbook and then watch at least three short videos from Frontline World (available at http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/) and/or W.H. Freeman (some suggestions are listed below).
You should discuss one or more of the following questions:
1.) What are some explanations (physical and socio-political) for the geographic distribution of various forms of agriculture across the Earth? Has this distribution changed during the last several hundred years? If so, how and why? What is a socio-political explanation for the similar patterns of agriculture that are found is similar climate zones around the world? Please use specific examples from your text and from the assigned films (when possible).
