Genetic diversity and conservation of two endangered eggplant relatives (Solanum vespertilio Aiton and Solanum lidii Sunding) endemic to the Canary Islands

Abstract

Solanum vespertilio Aiton and Solanum lidii Sunding are endemic, endangered wild species from the Canary Islands. These species are of potential value for eggplant (S. melongena) breeding, given that they are part of the secondary genepool of this crop. We study genetic diversity with amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) markers from 5… (More)
