About the Authors
  • The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) is an association of agricultural research centres which together represent an important force in genetic conservation of crops and their wild relatives. Under the CGIAR umbrella, the centres are collectively custodians of international genetic resource collections for crops that provide 75 per cent of the world's food energy. This volume considers the status of the key collections, in each case providing details of the botany, distribution and agronomy of the species concerned, in addition to extensive information on germplasm conservation and use. The book presents a unique synthesis of knowledge drawn from the CGIAR centres, providing an invaluable source of reference for all those concerned with monitoring, maintaining and utilizing the biodiversity of our staple crop species.

    • A summary of the genebank collections of a major international agricultural organization
    • Gives extensive information for over twenty key crop species
    • An important source of reference for all those concerned with monitoring, maintaining and utilizing crop biodiversity

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… a recent, important snapshot of gene banking activities at CGIAR Centres. As such it is a handbook that should be used by agricultural students and scientists beginning research into biodiversity conservation, plant breeding or general plant-based systems.'
