Mediterranean Hedysarea species constitute important phytogenetic resources able to promote forage production and to valorize grasslands currently damaged by severe genetic erosion. The study of genetic diversity in nine Mediterranean Hedysarea species found in North Africa was performed using the AFLP technique. The eight primer combinations generated, on(More)
Domestication generally implies a loss of diversity in crop species relative to their wild ancestors because of genetic drift through bottleneck effects. Compared to native Mediterranean fruit species like olive and grape, the loss of genetic diversity is expected to be more substantial for fruit species introduced into Mediterranean areas such as apricot(More)
Apricot was introduced into the Mediterranean Basin from China and Asian mountains through the Middle-East and the Central Europe. Traditionally present in Tunisia, we were interested in accessing the origin of apricot species in the country, and in particular in the number and the location of its introductions. A set of 82 representative apricot accessions(More)
Powdery mildew, caused by Sphaerotheca pannosa var. Persicae, is one of the most important diseases in apricot production areas around the world. The transmission of resistance to powdery mildew and the identification of related quantitative trait loci (QTLs) were analysed during 3 years in two F1 apricot progenies derived from the crosses ‘Bergeron’ ×(More)
Tunisian tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) is an important grass for forages or soil conservation, particularly in marginal sites. Inter-simple sequence repeats were used to estimate genetic diversity within and among 8 natural populations and 1 cultivar from Northern Tunisia. A total of 181 polymorphic inter-simple sequence repeat markers were(More)
