Corrections and Clarifications

“School Slogans” page: The correct name of the school mentioned is East Carolina University.

Page 45: “The Next Green Revolution” gave an incomplete description of the isolation of the Sub1 gene in rice. The gene was actually isolated by Kenong Xu, working in the laboratory of Pamela Ronald at the University of California, Davis.

Page 47: The photo caption should have referred to Peru’s southern coastal desert, not the Atacama. That place name only applies to the desert in Chile.

Page 53: The correct numbers for the Y axis of the global rice yields graph are: 0, 1, and 2.

Page 70: The border label “U.S./Mexico” on the map was misplaced. It should have been moved a half inch to the left.
