|Toelichting (Engels)||Crop wild relatives (CWRs) are rich sources of genetic diversity and are potentially useful in plant breeding for the development of varieties with novel traits. However, many CWRs are poorly represented in gene banks, while their conservation in situ is by no means ensured. Nature reserves may protect species against present-day threats, but climate change is increasingly being considered a serious problem for the continued survival in situ.|
