The diversity of genetic resources for food and agriculture (i.e. plants/crops, animals, aquatic resources, forests, micro-organisms and invertebrates) plays a crucial role in meeting basic human food and nutritional needs. It is essential for maintaining and enhancing the efficiency and the resilience of production systems, as well as contributing to sustainable diets and to the . Plants, Genes, and Agriculture Sustainability through Biotechnology. First Edition. Edited by Maarten J. Chrispeels and Paul Gepts. Sinauer Associates is an imprint of Oxford University Press. Presents biological, economic, and sociocultural issues at an introductory level.
Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution also presents short communications on such topics as newly described crop taxa, nomenclatural notes, reports of collecting missions, and evaluation results of gene bank material, as well as book reviews of important publications in the field of genetic resources. Production systems and the underlying genetic resources including crop wild relatives that are found in cultivated and protected land, and especially in natural ecosystems such as forests (ranging from tropical to temperate), are severely threatened due to drastic land-use changes, over-exploitation of resources, and man-made and natural disasters.
Chapters in this book are written by leading geneticists, molecular biologists and other specialists on relevant topics on genetic erosion and conservation genetic diversity in plants. This divisible set of two volumes deals with a broad spectrum of topics on genetic erosion, and approaches to biodiversity conservation in crop plants and trees. The improvement of plant and animal genetic resource is increasingly an international activity. Improvements in the techniques for breeding and applied genetics (modern biotechnology) enhance the value of genetic resources. The difficulty is in measuring the value. This chapter reviews evidence that.

Plant genetic resources have been defined as the genetic material of plants, which is of value as a resource for present and future generations of people.
Traditionally, this definition focused on crop plants and their wild relatives, but it is increasingly considered that all plant species are a potential resource for humanity. genetic resources that are also threatened by it, are the raw materials to improve the capacity of crops to respond to climate change and must be protected.
An enhanced use of plant genetic diversity is essential to address these and other future challenges. The Second Report on the State of the World’s Plant Genetic Resources for Food andFile Size: 9MB. 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. This book is an anthology of issues pertaining to access to plant genetic resources, phthyosanitation and international developments, genetic erosion, germplasm conservation, germplasm evaluation and utilization, national policy on plant genetic resources, action plan and implementation strategies.

The ex-situ and in-vitro approaches to conservation of plant genetic resources, as outlined above, are being integrated with a strategy for in-situ conservation of wild relatives of crop plants in the form of gene sanctuaries and eco-system conservation (Table 5a and b).This phase will be undertaken in active collaboration with the Department of Environment and Forests that.
