Abstract

Turkey is an important center for plant genetic resources and genetic diversity. In Turkey, the Black Sea Region is very rich in vegetable genetic resources due to its diverse geographical, climatic and ecological conditions. Conservation and maintenance of these valuable genetic resources is essential. In order to protect the highly threatened vegetable genetic resources in this region, it was very important to set up a collection, conservation, utilization and research system. The aim of this review was to outline some of the vegetable genetic resources of the Black Sea region; their distribution, their collection and characterization; and to describe cultivar breeding programmes from 1994 to 2009 and beyond. This overview will give the agricultural scientist an insight to into the large degree of genetic diversity in Turkey, and provide information about the distribution and potential utilization of these irreplaceable genetic resources.
