 en Invited Review-CONSERVATION OF PLANT GENETIC RESOURCES
Omotoye Olorode

Abstract

Survey, collection and conservation are important starting points in the genetic resources impact chain and in sustainable environmental protection strategies. Collection of plant genetic resources provides materials for herbaria, field gene banks, seed banks and in vitro conservation which are all important and crucial for characterisation and evaluation of plant genetic resources for various human needs. Because only a small spectrum of genetic variability is apprehended during collections, in situ conservation is crucial for optimizing biodiversity conservation programmes.
