    Genetic variation is the raw material for the plant breeder, who must often select from primitive and wild plants, including wild species, in search of new genes. The appearance of new diseases, new pests, or new virulent forms of disease causing organisms makes it imperative that the plant be preserved, because it offers a potential for the presence of disease resistant genes not present in cultivated varieties. Also, there are demands for new characters-- for example, high protein, improved

    Genetic diversity is used for identifying diverse parents in plant breeding programmes. In the present study efforts were made to establish correlation between genetic diversity and hybrid performance of single-cross hybrids. This was achieved by assessment of genetic diversity by a set of 15 RAPD primers among 10 inbred lines representing popcorn, a special type of maize used as snacks. From this analysis, I-07-35-7-3 and I-07-63-18-3 were found to be diverse parents. Single-cross hybrid developed

    believe that race is biologically meaningless while others believe that race can be used to determine medical treatment for a person (Jorde & Wooding, 2004). Although there are genes that determine the different physical characteristics of people their genetic variation is mainly due their geographic location. There is some biological basis for the phenotypic differences in humans, but the way we define and understand these differences are flawed. There is no individual trait or gene that separates members

    With interracial marriage being a common thing, babies with two more different genes is not surprising. What is genetic diversity? Genetic diversity is the different level of genes in an individual. Genetic diversity, in a population, is the population contains most of one or more alternative forms of a gene that mutate at the same place on the chromosome. Furthermore, genetic diversity helps the population to adapt to the environment. The more genes mutate; the population

    Discuss the issues related to genetic diversity: mutations, sexual reproduction, migration, and population size Genetic diversity: Genetic diversity ids defined as the diversity or genetic variability within species. Every species possesses genes which are the source of its own unique features. In human beings, for example, each person's genetic individuality is reflected by the huge variety of people's faces. The term genetic diversity also involves distinct populations of a single species, for

    Genetic Diversity on Restoration Compilation of all direct and indirect effects on the planet by human activities has become very critical to the restoration of endangered species to their native environment. Efforts around the world are in the works to help preserve many species from disappearing from the face of the earth. In areas where fitness species or population is low, conservation management strategy have been advocated to help avoid extinction. Such case can be seen with the Florida

    The study of heredity is what is referred to as genetics. Genetic diversity is therefore described as any variation in the genes, chromosomes, nucleotides or sometime change in the whole genomes of an organism. Though genome is not well branded term for many, it is the entire balance of DNA within the cell or organelles of the organism. When one talks of genetic diversity in its most elementary level, it is represented by differentiation in the sequence of nucleotides that form the DNA within the

    Industrial Agriculture and the Loss of Biodiversity Preserving Diversity By Way Of Old Crop Varieties Traditional methods is indeed the most advantageous way to retain sustainable success in farming suggested by Stephen B. Brush in his research of the effect of diversity in agriculture. In "Genetic Diversity And Conservation In Traditional Farming Systems," he explains how analyzing genetic erosion and the loss of genetic resources eventually leads to environmental degradation.

    different niches. Organism X eats only small seeds and organism Y eats large seeds. If the environment changes, and say acid rain wipes out all of the big seeds then only organism Y will be able to survive. This is an example of a genetic bottleneck, a reduction of genetic diversity. In another study of moths, there are black moths and white ones. In the Industrial revolution, the trees became black with soot and only the black moths could survive, because the white moths were eaten. This is evidence for

Romania is a country with rich biodiversity (ecosystems, species and genetic diversity) and a high percentage of natural ecosystems 47% of the land area of the country is covered with natural and semi-natural ecosystems. The natural integrity of forest ecosystems is indicated by the presence of the full range of European forest
