The Eighth Peace Seeds Resource Journal 1997
This intro was written by David Seber.
After 15 years of working on gardens that maximize biodiversity, Dr. Al tells the tale of constructing a kinship garden using Rolf Dahlgren's coevolutionay bubble mapping layouts. He also reviews sunflowers, from the soil to the genes and, from the planet to the plant. He continues his collaboration with Dr. Sarangamat Gurusiddiah in providing analysis of free amino acids in the juices of another group of interesting crops including cucumbers, sunflower petals and snap beans. Then they look at glutamine, one of the amino acid energy sources of our brains and, arginine- the precursor to nitrous oxide, NO, which regulates both the hemoglobin-oxygen process in our blood and the flexi-contractility of our blood vessels. Other articles concern the patenting of life and the public domain from which continuing theft of organisms threatens a healthy future for humanity

The Ninth Peace Seeds Resource Journal 2001
Dr. Al and his daughter, Kusra, introduce a kinship gardening layout for the world flora based on the new taxonomy of the plants coming from molecular biology. In detail kinship analysis of maguey (Agaves) and Theobroma (chocolate) are developed. Kusra's journey to China is raccounted in a 30 page photoessay and eminent chinese horticultural scientist Bi Jihuan and his duaghter Bi Xiaoyan use the kinship paradigm to analyse 925 kinds of chinese vegetables. In an unprecedented collaboration, powerful social commentaries on pressing issues of our times are provided by David Seber, Alan Venet, Howard Shapiro and Al Kapuler. The Peace Journals have been published since the early 1980's. Volume 9 is the highpoint of this ongoing work
