Conserving plant genetic diversity in protected areas : population management of crop wild relatives

Complete Title: 
Conserving plant genetic diversity in protected areas : population management of crop wild relatives
Non IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This book is about the conservation of genetic diversity of wild plants in situ in their natural surroundings, primarily in existing protected areas but also outside conventional protected areas. The principles outlined are equally applicable for the in situ genetic conservation of any wild plant species, whether the aim is to maintain a species threatened by habitat fragmentation, over-collection from the wild or a species that has potential use as a gene donor to our crops.
