Plant Genetic Conservation: The in situ approach G. T. Prance (auth.), N. Maxted, B. V. Ford-Lloyd, J. G. Hawkes (eds.) The recent development of ideas on biodiversity conservation was already being considered almost three-quarters of a century ago for crop plants and the wild species related to them, by the Russian geneticist N.!.

The book complements existing conservation genetic textbooks by delving into the specific conservation problem of loss of genetic diversity in small, isolated populations. Its foundation is a paradigm shift in conservation biology, where genetic rescue is more frequently used for the conservation of endangered populations, and it provides  › Books › Science, Nature & Maths › Biological Sciences.   Cryopreservation is the preservation of viable cells, tissues and organs in liquid nitrogen, at °C. This storage procedure can be successfully applied to a wide range of organisms and biological tissues (Benson and Lynch, ; Benson et al., ; Harding et al., ) and it is being increasingly used to conserve crop plant germplasm (Ashmore, ).

Later, in the ss scientists began to realize that the pool of genetic diversity known to Vavilov and his colleagues was beginning to disappear. Through the replacement of the old, primitive and highly diverse land races by uniform modem varieties created by The conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources is of increasing importance globally.

Plant Conservation Genetics addresses this issue by providing an extensive overview of this emerging area of science, exploring various practical strategies and the latest technology for conservation Pris: kr.

Conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources Alnarp 13th of April Plant genetic resources for food and agriculture (PGRFA) have been systematically collected and exchanged for some years. Conservation focuses explicitly on maintaining the diversity of the full range of genetic variation within a particular species or taxa.

Plant genetic resources can be conserved both in-situ and Genetic erosion became an important issue and led to the F AO/IBP Technical Conference on Exploration, Utilisation and Conservation of Plant Genetic Resources, and the development of a global strategy (FAO, ).
