CWR US presentation PGOC 2012

  1. 1. Toward a Strategy for Conservation of Crop Wild Relatives of the USA: Initial ResultsColin Khoury, Stephanie Greene, Nora Patricia Castañeda Alvarez, John Wiersema
  2. 2. Strategy Flowchartsource: adapted from Maxted N. various publications
  3. 3. National Inventory Taxa directly used for food, fiber, forage, medicine, ornamental, and restoration purposes CWR taxa (taxa used for crop improvement through breeding) Both native and non-native taxa Sources: GRIN World Economic Plants Database; Flora of North America; McGuffin (2000); Native Seed Network Database.• List reviewed by US researchers, curators, breeders (THANK YOU!) Phaseolus angustissimus source: SEINet• Inventory currently lists over 4,600 taxa
  4. 4. Taxonomic PrioritiesPrioritization of taxa based upon potential use value genepools of major crops with active breeding programs primary focus on food cropsGathered data on major crops globally (FAOSTAT,published literature, ITPGRFA)Prioritized the listResults: 242 World’s Top Crops (268 genera)101 crops (119 genera) in Priority 1141 crops (149 genera) in Priority 2Includes all the most important agricultural cropsaround the world by a number of measures, and coversall crops listed in FAOSTAT for US production and food Juglans hindsii source: http://dendro.cnre.vt.edusupply, with virtually all major US crops on Priority 1.
  5. 5. Taxonomic Priorities for the USApplied World’s Top Crops list to thenational inventory and GRINtaxonomy to derive a priority list ofCWR occurring in the USAReviewed inventory and proposedadditional priorities that did notemerge from global dataProposed iconic US wild harvestedspecies crops, e.g. sugar maple, wildrice, echinacea, pine nut, pecan, jojoba,agaveList reviewed by US researchers,curators, breeders (THANK YOU!) Vitis rotundifolia source: Will Cook, 2008
  6. 6. Taxonomic Priorities for the US>2,000 taxa of 175 priority genera occur in the USA800 taxa of 69 Priority 1 genera316 taxa of 33 genera 1A (closely related native taxa)477 taxa of 47 genera 1B (distantly related, non-native)Priority 2 genera- future work!Important crops with rich genepools include Allium(onion), Cucurbita (squash), Fragaria (strawberry),Helianthus (sunflower), Ipomoea (sweet potato),Phaseolus (bean), Prunus (cherry, almond, peach,etc.), Ribes (currant), Rubus (raspberry), Vaccinium(blueberry, cranberry), and Vitis (grape), among Rubus hawaiensis source: luirig.altervista.orgothers.

  10. 10. Gap Analysis: Global Project Occurrence Data Sources• Online data• Researchers• Herbarium and genebank databases• Herbarium visits- more than 25,000 photos taken at NY, PH, US, MO, CAS, UC, WAG, CUVC, R, RB, MA, COI, RBGE, LISU, LISC, LISI, BM, RBGE, P,  L, K, VIR. Global database contains ca. 4 million geo-referenced records add new occurrence data for 18 USA CWR priority genera filter for US occurrences
