Variation in diosgenin levels among 10 accessions of fenugreek seeds produced in western Canada.
TLDR
Analysis of variance on combined diosgenin levels from the three sites and two years revealed that accession, accession x year, and site x year effects were significant for diOSgenin content, whereas site, year,and site x accession effects were not. Expand
Allelic Diversity Changes in 96 Canadian Oat Cultivars Released from 1886 to 2001
TLDR
Findings indicate that allelic diversity at particular loci, rather than average genetic diversity, is sensitive to oat breeding practices and indicate the need for attention to be paid to Oat germplasm conservation. Expand
Patterns of AFLP variation in a core subset of cultivated hexaploid oat germplasm
TLDR
Red oat was genetically more diverse than its common and hull-less counterparts, and hull more related to common oat than red oat, and landrace and non-landrace accessions displayed similar AFLP variation patterns. Expand
ASPECTS OF BEE BIODIVERSITY, CROP POLLINATION, AND CONSERVATION IN CANADA
The risks to pollinator biodiversity in Canada are examined through a generalised model with inputs on environmental sensitivity, pressure indices, and societal response as they relate to theExpand
Impact of plant breeding on genetic diversity of the Canadian hard red spring wheat germplasm as revealed by EST-derived SSR markers
TLDR
Findings from genomic SSR markers suggest the Canadian wheat breeding programs have reduced genetic diversity in the hard red spring wheat, and illustrate the impact of theCanadian wheat breeding on the transcriptional segments of the wheat genome. Expand
Genetic diversity within a range of cultivars and landraces of flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) as revealed by RAPDs
TLDR
RAPDvariation was generally low and more variation was detected among, than within, the investigated flax accessions, and a trend was observed that the rate of loss in genetic variation in Canadian flax breeding programs over the last fifty years was approximately two variable loci per 100 lociper 10 years.
