Germplasm: Characteristics, Diversity and Preservation

BISAC: SCI029000

The need for germplasm banks that safeguard the vegetable genetic resources is more than justified by the genetic erosion aggravated in the last few decades, not only in the cultivars, but also in traditional landraces and wild relatives. Topics discussed in this book include the germplasm of melons, woodland grapes, sweet and sour cherries, soybean, and an alternative tool for the germplasm conservation in wild mammals.
