Enhancing Crop Genepool Use : Capturing Wild Relative and Landrace Diversity for Crop Improvement
About this item
Based on the 2014 "Enhanced Genepool Utilization: Capturing wild relative and landrace diversity for crop improvement" conference, in this book a team of international contributors address all aspects of utilization and conservation of crop wild relative (CWR) and landrace (LR) diversity for crop improvement.Focusing on characterization techniques, conservation strategies, facilitating CWR and LR use and informatics development,Enhancing Crop Genepool Use highlights exotic plant germplasm as a potentially critical but neglected resource for crop improvement. Novel characterization techniques and conservation strategies to identify and preserve CWR and LR traits to increase options for crop improvement as a means of underpinning food security in the face of climate change are demonstrated, and the current status and future enhanced utilization of CWR and LR diversity for improving agricultural production and sustaining the environment are explored.
