CROP EVOLUTION AND GENETIC RESOURCES: Agricultural and Horticultural Crops starts with the description of the theories of evolution, approaches to speciation and then narrates centre of diversity and domestication of crop plants. Various evolutionary forces (deterministic and stochastic) are described in detail and its consequences in terms of gene and genotypic frequencies are illustrated. Sampling strategies for collection and conservation of gene and germplasm are described. Phylogeny and various methods of constructing phylogenetic trees along with methods of estimating genetic distance are discussed. Finally, genetic resources and its utility are described crop wise and its breeding implications are detailed. This book will be useful for undergraduate and post-graduate students, teachers and researchers in the field of practical plant breeding, cytogenetics and biotechnology.
