Cover for Joining up the dots: a systematic perspective of crop wild relative conservation and use.

The aim of genetic conservation of crop wild relatives (CWR) is to maximize the maintenance of genetic diversity, but it is explicitly utilitarian in that it makes the link between CWR genetic diversity, its conservation and its utilization. The model for plant genetic resources conservation...

Cover for A long-term systematic monitoring framework for on-farm conserved potato landrace diversity.

This chapter focuses on the development and implementation of a systematic monitoring approach to provide robust intelligence about the landrace conservation status of potato in its centre of origin. The components of these monitoring systems, i.e. hotspot identification, total diversity, relative...

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...
