Origin, evolution, and early dispersal of root and tuber crops


Origin, evolution, and early dispersal of root and tuber crops



Proceedings of the Fourth Symposium of the International Society for Tropical Root Crops Section 1 Origin, dispersal and evolution: 20-36



Tropical root and tuber crops have been domesticated in south-east Asia, west-central Africa and tropical Latin America, including the high Andes. The families involved are mentioned, most of their crop species being polyploid and vegetatively propagated. Information on the evolution of root and tuber crops is scarce.
