Systematic botany in the development of Vernonia galamensis as a new industrial oilseed crop for the semi-arid tropics


Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, Symbolae Botanicae Upsalienses 28(3): 125-135
Systematic botany in the development of Vernonia galamensis as a new industrial oilseed crop for the semi-arid tropics
This species was first discovered by the author in Ethiopia in 1964. Its seeds are a source of vernolic (epoxy) acid. Current taxonomic knowledge, which identifies 6 subspecies and 4 botanical varieties in East Africa, provides guidance to develop a strategy for exploration for germplasm to provide greater seedling vigour, increased drought resistance and other desirable characteristics.
