The journal features research on a wide range of species, including major crops such as wheat, and underutilized species such as African yam bean. Many papers reveal novel sources of diversity for crop improvement, as well as showcase improved methods of molecular characterization. Articles on genetic erosion and conservation of farmers’ varieties and crop wild relatives also feature prominently.
Plant Genetic Resources serves the interests of all stakeholders concerned with plant genetic resources conservation and sustainable use—including researchers, plant breeders, farmers, conservation practitioners, and policymakers. The journal is global in scope, reflecting the inter-dependency of countries and regions on plant genetic resources for food, nutrition, economic, and livelihood security.
