Genetic erosion, that is, the loss of native plant and genetic diversity has been exponential from the Mediterranean Basin through the Twentieth century. This careless eradication of species and genetic diversity as a result of human activities from a 'hot-spot' of diversity threatens sustainable agriculture and food security for the temperate.

Kushairi, Malaysian Palm Oil Board, Malaysia. 1 Introduction. 2 The genetic base of current breeding materials. 3 Genetic diversity in oil palm: fruit forms. 4 Genetic diversity in oil palm: fruit types. 5 Genetic diversity in oil palm: morphological traitsAuthor: N. Rajanaidu, A. Mohd Din, M. Marhalil, A. Norziha, O. A. Meilina, A. M. Fadila, A. B. Nor Azwani, L. In order to further strengthen research in this direction, an All India Coordinated Research Project on Under-utilised and Under-exploited Plants was initiated in with its headquarters at the National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources, New Delhi with 15 main centres and 10 voluntary centres in different agro-climatic zones. i MEDICINAL PLANTS RESEARCH IN ASIA, VOLUME 1 The International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI) is an independent international scientific organization that seeks to advance the conservation and use of plant genetic diversity for the well-being of present and future Size: 1MB.
