Understanding global trends in the use of wheat diversity and international flows of wheat genetic resources

Understanding global trends in the use of wheat diversity and international flows of wheat genetic resources

Working Paper CIMMYT Economics Program ( 96/02): xii + 61 pp.

The paper: discusses the centres of origin and diversity for bread wheat; sketches historical patterns in the sources and use of wheat genetic resources in modern plant breeding; identifies and compares indicators of genetic diversity used by social and biological scientists; reviews the relationship of wheat genetic diversity to yield stability and vulnerability to disease; develops a profile of the structure of genetic variation in wheat in the developing world today; and investigates how scientific plant breeding has influenced the structure of genetic variation among the major bread wheats grown in developing countries.
