Promising kale (Brassica oleracea var. acephala) populations from Black Sea region, Turkey
11 types of native kale genotypes were selected as being promising for further breeding efforts, including dark green and very dark green, except for 61AK01, which was classed as early.
Production of in vitro haploid plants from in situ induced haploid embryos in winter squash (Cucurbita maxima Duchesne ex Lam.) via irradiated pollen
The influence of pollen irradiation on the production of in vitro haploid plants from in situ induced haploid embryos was investigated in winter squash and the convenient harvest time for embryo rescue was observed about 4 weeks after pollination.
The phenotypic diversity and fruit characterization of winter squash ( Cucurbita maxima ) populations from the Black Sea Region of Turkey
Evaluation of fruit trait variability can assist geneticists and breeders to identify populations with desirable characteristics for inclusion in variety breeding programs.

Vegetable Genetic Resources of Turkey
Abstract Turkey is an important center for plant genetic resources and genetic diversity. It is also one of the domestication centers where ancient agriculture started. Traditionally small-scale…
Evaluation of variation in seed characters of Turkish winter squash (Cucurbita maxima) populations
Evaluation of seed trait variability can assist geneticists and breeders to identify the populations with unique characteristics for inclusion in future breeding activities and demonstrate that substantial differences in seed dimensions exist in Turkish winter squash populations.
Pattern of variation for seed characteristics in Turkish populations of Cucurbita moschata Duch.
The populations evaluated in this study display a wide diversity of seed characters for selection and combination of interesting genotypes for important seed characters in order to obtain improved varieties.
USE OF CANONICAL CORRELATION ANALYSIS FOR DETERMINATION OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PLANT CHARACTERS AND YIELD COMPONENTS IN WINTER SQUASH (Cucurbita maxima Duch.) POPULATIONS
BALKAYA, A., S. CANKAYA and M. OZBAKIR, 2011. Use of canonical correlation analysis for determination of relationships between plant characters and yield components in winter squash (Cucurbita maxima…
Evaluation and selection of suitable pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata Duchense) types for the Black Sea region, Turkey.
Diversity and use of pinto bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) populations from Samsun, Turkey
Characters with high coefficients in the first PC (earliness and yield traits), and the second PC (pod length, pod width, and pod form) were considered the most important since these axes explain nearly half of the total variation.
