Plant genetic resources is a rapidly expanding field of interest that is becoming increasingly important as global warming affects the patterns of world agriculture. Every country will have to consider more active breeding programmes to develop new varieties of crop plants adapted to the changing conditions. Plant genetic resources will provide the raw material for these breeding activities.
This dictionary is in effect a glossary of the terms used in the field, defining words drawn from the many, diverse areas of interest that plant genetic resources involve, from plant taxonomy to molecular genetics. Over 1800 definitions are provided, all of which have been developed in consultation with experts in the field, particularly the genetic resources units of the international agricultural research centres of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research. IBPGR is one of these centres.
