Understanding global trends in the use of wheat diversity and international flows of wheat genetic resources
This paper discusses the centers of origin and diversity for bread wheat; sketches historical patterns in the sources and use of wheat genetic resources in modern plant breeding; identifies and compares indicators of genetic ...
The flowering of apomixis: from mechanisms to genetic engineering
(CIMMYT; IRD; European Commission, 2001)
Apomixis, the asexual reproduction of plants through seeds, has received increasing attention as technological advances have led to a rapid increase in knowledge about cellular biology, molecular genetics, and the mechanisms ...
A conceptual framework for valuing on-farm genetic resources
This paper proposes a preliminary conceptual framework designed to support strategic decisions about which crop populations-in a well-defined reference area within a crop's center of diversity-are suitable candidates for ...
Demand and supply of crop infraspecific diversity on farms: towards a policy framework for on-farm conservation
Interest is increasing worldwide in on-farm conservation as a component of a strategy to conserve crop genetic resources. On-farm conservation may require outside support to small-scale farmers in areas of crop domestication ...
