Cover for Capturing wild relative and landrace diversity for crop improvement using a new selection tool to exploit genetic resources in durum wheat (<i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Triticum durum</i> Desf.).

This chapter deals with the application of the single seed descent (SSD) method, originally developed to facilitate the selection of recombinant lines, in durum wheat (T. durum) to obtain a set of genotypes potentially retaining most of the variation of this species. A total of 452 accessions,...

Cover for Pre-domesticating wild relatives as new sources of novel genetic diversity.

Cultivated barley (Hordeum vulgare) and its wild progenitor, Hordeum spontaneum, are used as a model to employ the proposed methodology of incorporating 'domestic' traits into the wild species and illustrate the increased efficiency and effectiveness of this approach to taming wild relative...

Cover for Genetic systems and the conservation of wild relatives of crops.

This chapter aims to stress the fact that different and contrasting genetic systems have evolved in flowering plants. It focuses on some of the main components of these systems, namely the various modes of reproduction that evolved in plants, and on the massive occurrence of polyploidy present in...
