CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Genetic reserve conservation of European crop wild relative and landrace diversity.

This chapter presents a generic methodology that can be used to prioritize taxa on the basis of their potential use for crop improvement and relative threat status. The importance of gathering of necessary data to undertake diversity and gap analysis for target taxa and select the most appropriate...

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 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...
