Issues in crop genetic resources conservation fall into three broad categories: (1) biological; (2) socioeconomic; and (3) legal and political. Many of the issues are undergoing rapid changes and adjustments and emphasis, particularly in recent years, has shifted from the first to the latter two categories. This paper focuses on the vital role of ex situ preservation in core collections of manageable size using an ICARDA Triticum durum collection (11 678 accessions) as an example.
