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 Assortment of genetic variability.

This chapter is dedicated to the processes by which gene frequencies change. It first describes how plant populations behave with completely random mating and no extenuating circumstances, and then discusses how gene frequencies are influenced by migration, drift and selection. The various...

Cover for Population genetics - gene frequencies, inbreeding and forces of evolution.

This chapter begins by describing how to quantify the genetic composition of forest tree populations at single gene loci using genotype and allele frequencies. Then, it is emphasized how an important type of non-random mating, inbreeding, impacts the frequencies of genotypes in populations. The...
