CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Population genetics in plant-pathogen interactions.

Plant pathogens seldom fit into a classical definition of a population since many of these organisms reproduce both via sexual and clonal reproduction. One working definition is a set of organisms, defined in time and space. Genotypic and gene diversity can be measured with phenotypic and genotypic ...

Cover for Saving seeds for planting and sharing.

Most seed saving is relatively easy, and many gardeners already know how to do it. But the key to getting the most out of saving and sharing garden seeds is understanding how these affect diversity and adaptation, and what that means to people and the communities. This chapter focuses on concepts...

Cover for Potential risks of algae bioenergy feedstocks.

Algal biofuels are an attractive alternative to fossil fuels due to their high productivity and the possible integration of their production systems with wastewater treatment and bioremediation of CO2. However, there has been increasing concern over the risks associated with the use of algae for...

Cover for Gene flow and invasiveness in bioenergy systems.

Gene flow between crops and their wild or weedy relatives can result in the establishment of hybrid populations outside of cultivation. Here, we examine the potential for gene flow between several emerging bioenergy feedstocks and their compatible relatives, and the factors that affect the...

Cover for Status of resistance to Bt cotton in China: cotton bollworm and pink bollworm.

Transgenic cotton that expresses a gene derived from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) has been deployed for combating the cotton pests Helicoverpa armigera and Pectinophora gossypiella since 1997 in China. The pest management tactics associated with Bt cotton have resulted in a drastic...

Cover for Gene flow in African rice farmers' fields.

This chapter discusses several scenarios for the development of interspecific rice cultivars and the influence of farmers on gene flow. The need for more information on the weights applied by farmers to the nodes and the ways farmers weigh the nodes in a so-called gene flow network is highlighted.
