Abstract

First Paragraph: 

Beef origin traceability, cultural sustainability, rural food deserts, climate variability and adaptations, food safety regulations, urban agriculture, and food waste — the topics offered by authors of this open call edition of the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development (also called JAFSCD or the Food Systems Journal) reflect the enormous diversity of the nascent field of food systems. We hold in high esteem the researchers across a broad range of disciplines working in collaboration with practitioners in the field to produce the papers contained herein. Anthropologists, economists, animal scientists, sociologists, educators, and even lawyers, are working with food policy council members, planners, and staffers from community-based organizations with increasing frequency. It is rewarding to see the transdisciplinary literature on food systems grow, and the Food Systems Journal community is very proud to be contributing to it. This issue is a testament to the remarkable depth and breadth of the emerging food systems literature.
