  author={Andr{\'e}s Contreras and Luigi Ciampi and Stefano Padulosi and David M. Spooner},
  journal={Potato Research},
SummaryA joint Chilean, Italian, and United States potato (Solanum tuberosum) germplasm collecting expedition was conducted in the Guaitecas and Chonos Archipelagos, south of Chiloé Island, between March 4 – March 21, 1990. The expedition resulted in 30 collections ofSolanum tuberosum and 1 collection ofFragaria chiloensis L. Twenty-three of the potato collections were along the salt-water-swept shores of the islands. These beach populations, unlike the indigenous landraces in southern Chile… Expand

Taxonomy of cultivated potatoes (Solanum section Petota: Solanaceae)
This paper compiles, for the first time, the epithets associated with all taxa of cultivated potato, places them in synonymy and provides lectotype designations for all names validly published where possible. Expand
The Enigma of Solanum maglia in the Origin of the Chilean Cultivated Potato, Solanum tuberosum Chilotanum Group1
New starch grain analyses fail to support the hypothesis that Chilotanum landraces arose from Solanum maglia, a rare tuber-bearing species found in Chile and Argentina, and shed light on aspects of this question and highlight various evolutionary scenarios. Expand
Potato systematics and germplasm collecting, 1989–2000
The systematics of wild potatoes over the past 11 years are reviewed, in reference to the latest comprehensive taxonomic treatment by Hawkes (1990), with a revised list of 206 species presented that incorporates recent synonymy of names, recognition of new names, and new species descriptions. Expand
Ecogeography of ploidy variation in cultivated potato (Solanum sect. Petota).
The authors' distributional and ecological data, in combination with prior results from morphology, microsatellites, and crossing data, provide yet additional data to support a major reclassification of cultivated potato species. Expand
Response of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Germplasm to Water Stress Under In Vitro Conditions
The results highlight the importance of this germplasm in food security, which could be directly cultivated and/or be used as progenitors to produce new varieties with increased tolerance to water-deficit stress. Expand
Potato Genetic Resources
Application of next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies would accelerate germplasm management, the evaluation of genetic diversity in situ and ex situ, and conservation planning of potato genetic resources. Expand
The Potato Genome
The potato has a fascinating history, from its origin and domestication in the Andean Region, where it was essential for feeding a growing population, for example, the Inca Empire, to itsExpand
Diversity of potato genetic resources
Previously, primitive forms of cultivated potato and its wild relatives have been used in breeding programs and there is still an enormous and unimaginable potential for discovering desirable characteristics, particularly in wild species Different methods have been developed to incorporate useful alleles from these wild species into the improved cultivars.

Creation of long-day adapted tetraploid potatoes from crosses of Solanum tarijense females with Andigena males
Experimental support is lent to the hypothesis that the Chilean tuberosum originated by selection for long-day adaptability from tetraploid hybrids that occurred by fertilization of a 2n egg of S. tarijense and n pollen of Andigena. Expand

Potato germplasm collecting expedition to Chile, 1989, and utility of the Chilean species
A joint Chilean, United States potato (Solanum sect.Petota) germplasm collecting expedition was conducted in Chile between January 21–March 30, 1989. The trip resulted in collections ofSolanumExpand
Potato remains from a late pleistocene settlement in southcentral Chile
Taxonomic and evolutionary relationships between the Chilean cultivars ofSolanum tuberosum and the wild speciesS. maglia are explored. Widely separated centers of origin are postulated for the GroupExpand
The origin of the cultivated tetraploid potato based on chloroplast DNA
SummaryBy using restriction enzyme analysis of chloroplast DNA, a geographical cline from the Andean region to coastal Chile was found for the tetraploid potato (Solanum tuberosum). This supports theExpand

In the first stages of potato evolution in the northern Andes, diploid cultivated species of theSolanum stenotomum complex were selected, in all probability, from wild progenitors in theS. brevicauleExpand
The potato in Spain during the late 16th century
A study is presented of the Hospital de la Sangre account books in Seville at the Archivo Hispalense for the period 1546 to 1601, to verify purchases of potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) during thatExpand
The past record and future prospects for the use of exotic potato germplasm
The convenience of obtaining germplasm from the IR-1 project, and the genetic, cytogenetic, and adaptation studies based on this germplasma, have fostered a new wave of the use of exotic material. Expand
The use of foreign introductions in breeding American potato varieties
Though many of the varieties developed by the breeders of the 19th century have disappeared from general agricultural production a few of the best adapted, particularly P, usset Burbank, Irish Cobbler, White Rose, Triumph, Red McClure, Green Mountain, Russet Rural and Early Ohio, are still very important commercially.
