[Detlef Virchow] -- The conservation of crop genetic resources is one of the important components in the effort to increase agricultural production in low-income countries in a sustainable manner and to guarantee. Abstract. The genetic diversity of many crop species, which is manifested in varieties, land races and wild relatives, is endangered by the loss of natural habitats, deforestation and land clearance as well as the growing worldwide uniformity of crop production and the introduction of new pests and diseases, to highlight only the most important by: 1.

The loss of biodiversity is considered one of today’s most serious environmental concerns by the Food and Agriculture Organization. If current trends persist, as many as half of all plant species could face extinction. Among the many threatened species are wild relatives of our crops – the wild and weedy . Over the past decade the importance of natural resources for sustainable agricultural development has been increasingly discussed at international forums and conferences. Aside from the sustainable management of soil, water, and air, it now seems to be accepted that the sustainable management of genetic resources is one of the four indispensable preconditions 5/5(1).

Crop wild relatives are wild plant species that are genetically related to cultivated crops. Untended by humans, they continue to evolve in the wild, developing traits – such as drought tolerance or pest resistance – that farmers and breeders can cross with domesticated crops to . Comprehensive research program must include continued genomic, metabolomic, ecological and agronomical study of native Vanilla species, thereby informing effective conservation strategies, in addition to facilitating efficient use of genetic diversity in crop improvement programs.
