Genetic and Genomic Resources of Grain Legume Improvement is the first book to bring together the latest resources in plant genetics and genomics to facilitate the identification of specific germplasm, trait mapping and allele mining to more effectively develop biotic and abiotic-stress-resistant grains. This book will be an invaluable resource. One of the world centers of crop evolution and origin, Ethiopia has long been recognized as an important area of diversity for several major and various minor crops. Based on an international conference held in Addis Ababa, this book describes how plant genetic diversity in Ethiopia is of vital importance in breeding new varieties of crops with desirable characteristics, such as increased. The three main sections in the book consider the Ethiopian centre of diversity, germplasm collection and conservation in Ethiopia and the evaluation and utilization of Ethiopian genetic resources.   Demonstrating the shortcomings of current policy and legal approaches to access and benefit-sharing (ABS) in the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), this book recognizes that genetic resources are widely distributed across countries and that Cited by: 4.

Genetic resources are contributing to poverty alleviation (SDG 1), food security (SDG 2), good health and wellbeing (SDG 3), gender equality (SDG 5), innovation (SDG 9) and life on land (SDG 15), just to name a few. 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.

This global primer surveys international initiatives on traditional knowledge, folklore, cultural heritage and genetic resources, and describes in a comprehensive manner regional and national principles of protection in Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, the United States and the : Paul Kuruk. Global distribution of plant genetic resources. In general, the highest number of species of vascular plants is found in the humid tropics and subtropics [].The species number strongly declines from the tropics and subtropics towards the temperate and polar zone north and south of the equator, indicating that hotspots of biodiversity are mainly associated with warm and humid tropical Cited by: 3. 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.
