Despite the urgent need to conserve domesticated plant genetic resources, and developing ‘on farm’ strategies of conservation, the impact of traditional farming practices and of their interaction with ecological factors on the structure and evolutionary dynamics of the genetic variability of crop populations has been little documented. We assessed the genetic variability of 31 varieties of cassava (M. esculenta Crantz) traditionally grown by Makushi Amerindians from Guyana, using AFLP markers… CONTINUE READING
