  • Plant breeding and farmer participation

    Plant breeding and farmer participation

    This book complements the traditional approach to plant breeding by addressing a number of issues specifically related to the participation of farmers in a plant breeding programme, and provides a comprehensive description and assessment of the use of participatory plant breeding in developing countries. It is aimed at plant breeders, social scientists, students and practitioners interested in learning more about its use, with the hope that they ...

  • State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2008 - Arabic

    State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2008 - Arabic

    This issue of The State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture features some aspects that may receive increasing attention: climate change, the use of marine genetic resources in areas beyond national jurisdiction, and the proliferation of private standards and certification schemes in the international fish trade. This report also highlights some of FAO's special studies. Among these are the use of wild-fishery resources as seed and feed in ...

    Workshop on Status and Trends in Aquatic Genetic Resources. A basis for international policy. 8-10 May 2006, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries ProceedingsFish genetic resources (FiGR) comprise all finfish and aquatic invertebrate genetic material that has actual or potential value for capture fisheries and aquaculture. In capture fisheries more species are becoming endangered and more stocks overexploited. Management of FiGR can help maintain and rebuild these fisheries. Deep-sea fisheries and modern genetic technologies are emerging areas that require at

  • Genetic resources of common carp at the Fish Culture Research Institute, Szarvas, Hungary (En)

    Genetic resources of common carp at the Fish Culture Research Institute, Szarvas, Hungary (En)

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical PapersCommon carp is one of the oldest cultured and most domesticated fish in the world, and is a very adaptable species in both the wild and in culture coditions. The genetic resources of common carp maintained at the Fish Culture Research Institute in Szarvas, Hungary, are described in this paper. The genetic improvement of common carp in Hungary started in 1962. Five main features were evaluated that d

  • Inbreeding and brood stock management (En )

    Inbreeding and brood stock management (En )

    Series: FAO Fisheries Technical Papers This manual, written for extension workers, aquaculturists, and those who work with natural resource management programmes, primarily deals with the problems caused by unwanted inbreeding in cultured fish populations and describes management techniques that can be used to prevent or minimize inbreeding. The manual also describes how inbreeding can be used to improve captive populations of fish.

  • Collecting plant genetic diversity : technical guidelines

    Collecting plant genetic diversity : technical guidelines

    Biodiversity is essential for sustainable development, and cultures from ancient times to the present day have exploited biodiversity. With the advent of scientific breeding, new plant varieties have been developed. Plant breeders are dependent upon the availability of a large pool of diverse genetic material represented by local races and wild relatives. Without the ability to draw from a diverse genetic reservoir, further improvement may not ...
