A Middle American and an Andean Common Bean Gene Pool

Part of the Current Plant Science and Biotechnology in Agriculture book series (PSBA, volume 6)


Experiments on intraspecific genetic variability of plant species have revealed complex spatial patterns of variability among and within populations ranging from clines at one end, and ecotypes, to the other (for a review, see Briggs and Walters, 1984).
