Principles of angiosperm taxonomy by P. H Davis( Book )

37 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In writing a texbook on the principles of taxonomy, we have aimed at providing advanced students with a comprehensive survev of the subject. The absence of such a work has, we believe, inconvenienced both student and teacher alike. Although the expanding horizons of the subject may have proved daunting enough, another major factor which must have deterred authors is that few other subjects are so open to serios controversy: on nearly every major topic there are opposing schools of thought. Until recently the principles of taxonomy have been regarded as a closed secret, only to be communicated to the inituated after a period of apprentceship

Crop wild relatives : a manual of in situ conservation by Danny Hunter( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crop wild relatives (CWR) are plant species which are more or less closely related to crops. They are a vital resource by providing a pool of genetic variation that can be used in breeding new and better adapted varieties of crops that are resistant to stress, disease, drought and other factors. They will be increasingly important in allowing crops to adapt to the impacts of climate, thus safeguarding future agricultural production. Until recently, the main conservation strategy adopted for CWR has been ex situ - through the maintenance of samples as seed or vegetative material in various kinds of genebank or other facilities. Now the need to conserve CWR in their natural surroundings (in situ) is increasingly recognized. Recent research co-ordinated by Bioversity International has produced a wealth of information on good practices and lessons learned for their effective conservation. This book captures the important practical experiences of countries participating in this work and describes them for the wider conservation community. It includes case studies and examples from Armenia, Bolivia, Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Uzbekistan, which are important centres of diversity for crop wild relatives, and covers four geographical regions - the Caucasus, South America, Africa and the Asia-Pacific Region. It provides practical, relevant information and guidance for the scaling-up of actions targeting CWR conservation around the world
