Agrobiodiversity, The Global Food Supply

Infographic for Agrobiodiversity, The Global Food Supply

About this infographic

75% of the global food supply comes from just 12 plant and 5 animal species. This infographic doesn’t show the range of data visualizations that many others do, but concentrates on effectively visualizing the dependance of the world’s food supply on 3 core plants: wheat, corn and rice. The graphic showing the difference between the number of edible plants and those actually consumed by humans is also very compelling.
