Book: Linking Genetic Resources and Geography: Emerging Strategies for Conserving and Using Crop Biodiversity, CSSA Special Publication 27, 1999
Published by: Crop Science Society of America and American Society of Agronomy


Geography, through climate and landscape, influences natural selection and gene flow. Recognizing this relationship, plant genetic resource workers have always used the geographic information available to them to guide the exploration, collecting, and use of genetic diversity. The authors review the application of spatial analysis to genetic resource conservation and use issues, and discuss the successful implementation of geographic analysis in individual projects as well as the institutional adoption of GIS practice.
