The wild potato species of Mexico are more interesting, both to the botanist and to the plant breeder, than those of any other comparable area. Classical taxonomic studies have revealed an enormous range of morphological variation, linked to welbdefined areas and habitats. Biochemical and cytogenetical studies have disclosed complex patterns of relationships from which the evolutionary history of this group is gradually being revealed. Geneticists and plant breeders are showing us the wide… CONTINUE READING
