11 different plants are taken to illustrate a wide range of biological characteristics (perennial, annual, autogamous, allogamous, etc.). Three chapters on methodology complement these studies. The first is devoted to the use of biological and molecular markers to analyse the diversity of collections, the second addresses data analysis, and the third describes a method for constituting core collections based on maximization of variability.
