The field sampling procedures in plant genetic resources exploration are aimed at the fullest possible recovery of genetic variation within species, irrespective of the relative frequency or rarity of any genes. Thus, exploration and collection of plant genetic resources must be based on the application of sound scientific principles. The three main sections in the book consider the Ethiopian centre of diversity, germplasm collection and conservation in Ethiopia and the evaluation and utilization of Ethiopian genetic resources.

Industry Reviews "Plant breeders, geneticists, and botanists will find the book useful." Biological Abstracts "Too often we view plant genetic resources as diffusion out of the Near Eastern center into North Africa, Ethiopia, and Northern India; we often forget that . Plant genetic resources (PGR) are finite and vulnerable to erosion due to the severe threats to world food security of replacement of landraces/traditional cultivars by modern varieties, natural catastrophes such as droughts, floods, fire hazards, urbanization and industrialization, and habitat loss due to irrigation projects, overgrazing, mining and climate change (Upadhyaya & Gowda, ).

Originally published in paperback induring a time of growing global concern over the loss of gene resources in crop plants, this book is aimed at providing a comprehensive introduction to the form and availability of crop diversity, and to how this diversity may be gathered, conserved and ultimately combined with new by:   Depletion of plant genetic resources in areas of diversity at a rapid pace is a matter of global concern.

This book profiles all scientific management aspects of the horticultural crop genetic resources including their diversity, conservation and sustainable utilization. Plant Genetic Resources and Food Security explains clearly the different interests and views at stake between all players in the global food chain.

Genomics of Plant Genetic Resources presents a state-of-the-art collection of highly interdisciplinary articles describing how genomics improves our capacity to characterize and harness natural and artificially induced variation in order to boost crop productivity and.

About this book Our lives and well being intimately depend on the exploitation of the plant genetic resources available to our breeding programs. Therefore, more extensive exploration and effective exploitation of plant genetic resources are essential prerequisites for the release of improved cultivars.

The importance of Ethiopia's plant genetic resources to world agriculture has been demonstrated on more than one occasion. Plant breeders, geneticists, and botanists throughout the world will, therefore, find this unique book a valuable source Price: $ The Planet genetic resources book book “Plant Genetic Resources–An Overview” incorporates review and research articles on varied aspects of plant genetic resources.

This volume contains 13 chapters written by leading experts in the discipline incorporating recent development in the : Anuradha Singh, P.C. Tivedi, B.P. Singh.

Plant Genetic Resources is an international journal that brings together the many diverse topics concerned with plant genetic resources. Each issue gives you access to peer-reviewed research papers on genetic variation in plants, both crop and non-crop, as well as on the technical, socio-economic, legal and geo-political aspects of PGR.

Global distribution of plant genetic resources. In general, the highest number of species of vascular plants is found in the humid tropics and subtropics [].The species number strongly declines from the tropics and subtropics towards the temperate and polar zone north and south of the equator, indicating that hotspots of biodiversity are mainly associated with warm and humid tropical Cited by: 3.

Depletion of plant genetic resources in areas of diversity at a rapid pace is a matter of global concern. This book profiles all scientific management aspects of the horticultural crop genetic resources including their diversity, conservation and sustainable : Hardcover.

The purpose of plant genetic resources collections and gene banks is the rescue and permanent preservation of agricultural crop genetic biodiversity, extension of this agro-biodiversity with new genetic resources according to the actual needs of agricultural research and breeding, and also acquiring.

The three main sections in the book consider the Ethiopian centre of diversity, germplasm collection and conservation in Ethiopia and the evaluation and utilization of Ethiopian genetic resources.

A broad range of food and feed crops and plants of medicinal and industrial importance are discussed, both at a national and international level. History. The first use of plant genetic resources dates to more t years ago, when farmers selected from the genetic variation they found in wild plants to develop their crops.

As human populations moved to different climates and ecosystems, taking the crops with them, the crops adapted to the new environments, developing, for example, genetic traits providing tolerance to conditions.

Based on an international conference held in Addis Ababa, this book describes how plant genetic diversity in Ethiopia is of vital importance in breeding new varieties of crops with desirable. An excellent reference book for plant breeders and entomologists, Global Plant Genetic Resources for Insect-Resistant Crops combines germplasm preservation with use in insect-resistant crop development and basic by: Genetic erosion, that is, the loss of native plant and genetic diversity has been exponential from the Mediterranean Basin through the Twentieth century.
