Challenges of In Situ Conservation of Crop Wild Relatives 1 The region of South-West Asia may be defined in several different ways and no clear indication is given in the proceedings of the Author: Vernon Heywood. While CWR are likely to play a role in climate change adaptation of novel potato cultivars [], a number of the wild relatives of cultivated potato are threatened due to habitat destruction and climate change [60–62].It is therefore becoming more important to address gaps in the ex situ conservation of these plants, particularly for species that are currently underrepresented in Cited by: Ex situ conservation literally means, "off-site conservation".It is the process of protecting an endangered species, variety or breed, of plant or animal outside its natural habitat; for example, by removing part of the population from a threatened habitat and placing it in a new location, which may be a wild area or within the care of humans.

The degree to which humans control. In Situ Conservation of Genetic Resources A species or a population sample of a particular part of its genetic variation can be maintained through in situ or ex situ conservation. In situ conservation is the preservation of species and populations of living organisms in a natural state in the habitat where they naturally occur.

The Conservation of Plant Biodiversity takes an evolutionary perspective to the conservation of plant biodiversity, stressing the need to explore both current and long-term issues. It highlights three conservation strategies: communities conserved in nature reserves; individual species conserved in nature reserves or botanic gardens; and domesticated plants, preserved mainly Reviews: 1.

Trans situ conservation acknowledges that although the conservation and study of CWR genetic diversity are best accomplished in situ in the native environments where species continue to coevolve with their biotic associates (Chen et al., ), threats from climate change, land use disruptions, political unrest, and warfare necessitate safeguarding CWR diversity in ex situ.

Book Description. Crop wild relatives (CWR) are plant species which are more or less closely related to crops. They are a vital resource by providing a pool of genetic variation that can be used in breeding new and better adapted varieties of crops that are resistant to stress, disease, drought and other factors.

These wild relatives are presently threatened due to processes of habitat destruction and change and methodologies have been adapted to provide in-situ conservation through the establishment of genetic reserves within the existing network of protected ing a long-awaited synthesis of these new methodologies, this book presents a.

Definition of a Crop Wild Relative Crop plants are any plant species cultivated as food, medicinal, ornamental, forestry, fodder and forage species. The level of relatedness between a certain Crop Wild Relative (CWR) and a cultivated taxon influences its actual and potential use in breeding.

Harlan and de Wet (). The Crop Wild Relatives project, on the other hand, created a global portal that provides access to national inventories and information on crop wild relatives at the global level. The portal includes results of the assessments of the distribution, conservation status and values of crop wild relatives.

The assessments cover 36 priority genera. Ex Situ conservation actions are an important complementary measure to In Situ habitat management.

Ex situ conservation of wild plants is a central and unique role of botanic gardens. They have the appropriate facilities and staff expertise in botany and horticulture to be an ‘insurance policy’ against plant by: 2.

Passive in situ conservation of CWR in the Czech Republic is comprehensive at present, with all but one priority CWR species being contained in protected areas. Active in situ CWR conservation could be focussed within 11 ca. 10‐km‐by‐10‐km grid cells containing 94% of priority species, or their overlapping protected by: 5.

India is a home land of cultivated species and wild relatives of crop plants. It is a centre of diversity of animal species (e.g., zebu, mithun, chicken, water buffalo, camel); crop plants (e.g., edible dioscorea, alocasia, colocasia); species and condiments (e.g., cardamom, black pepper, ginger, turmeric), bamboos, brassicas and tree.

Crop wild relatives (CWR) are plant species which are more or less closely related to crops. They are a vital resource by providing a pool of genetic variation that can be used in breeding new and better adapted varieties of crops that are resistant to stress, disease, drought and other factors.

They will be increasingly important in allowing crops to adapt to the impacts .
