The aim of this study was to examine breeding objectives and the impact of production systems and breed types on dairy cattle performance in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). A total of 64 research studies published between 1980 and 2018 were used for qualitative analysis (qualitative synthesis) of...

Climatic variables can trigger physiological, biochemical, hematological, and hormonal alterations that influence the maintenance of homeothermy and can affect production and productivity in cattle. An understanding of pathways leading to resistance/tolerance in cattle is necessary, so that the...

Ash dieback, caused by the invasive fungal pathogen Hymenoscyphus fraxineus, has become a serious threat to ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) and ash-related ecosystems in Europe. The fast emergence and expansion of this new disease has called for an intensive investigation, which resulted in a large...

The structure of the plant inflorescence is an important agronomic and ornamental trait studied for its potential economic applications: the capacity to modify inflorescence architecture has always been a breeder's goal. The shape of flowering plants is determined by the forms of the flower-bearing ...

The existence of numerous wild species, the variability within species and the wide geographical distribution in combination with the weak barriers to interspecific and intersectional hybridization, make genetic relationships within the genus Rosa difficult to unravel. The use of molecular...

Root architecture is a key feature of roots that contributes to improving plant performance under stress. Identifying relevant root traits and defining their role in resistance to the different stresses is not an easy task. In this review, we describe the difficulties associated with the study of...

Yield and quality losses due to disease are major factors limiting crop productivity; thus breeding for disease resistance is a primary goal for many plant breeding programmes. Unfortunately, specific sources of resistance are not always available. In cases where sources of genetic resistance are...

It has been known for centuries that in epidemics of infectious diseases, some species, strains, families, and individuals are more resistant or susceptible than others. Since these early observations, the role of the inherent parameters in determining an individual's relative resistance to...

Stem or black rust, caused by Puccinia graminis tritici, has historically caused severe losses to wheat (Triticum aestivum) production worldwide. Successful control of the disease for over three decades through the use of genetic resistance has resulted in a sharp decline in research activity in...
