Genetic and fitness measurements of Brighamia accessions for APPSJeremie Fant, Seana Walsh & Jeremy Foster
Premise of the study: Living collections maintained for generations are at risk of diversity loss, inbreeding, and adaptation to cultivation. To address these concerns the zoo community uses pedigrees to track individuals and implement crosses that maximize founder contributions and minimize inbreeding. Using a pedigree management approach in an exceptional plant, we demonstrate how conducting such strategic crosses can minimize genetic issues that have arisen under current practices. Methods: We performed crosses between these collections...
