    Wageningen PhD theses

    This database contains bibliographic descriptions of all Wageningen University PhD theses from 1920 onwards. It is updated on a daily basis by WUR Library.

    Author abstracts and/or summaries are added to all descriptions. A link to the full text dissertation is added to the bibliographic description. In a few cases, no electronic version is available, mostly because of copyright issues.

    Hard copies of all theses are available for loan at WUR Library. To request them, click the link Request this publication in the full record presentation. This is a fee based service.

Doel van dit modelonderzoek was het optimaliseren van fokprogramma's. Het onderzoek richtte zich op het fokbeleid voor een gesloten varkensbedrijf, aangezien dit een kleine populatie betreft, waarin zowel selectie als inteelttoename van belang zijn en waarbij het onduidelijk is hoe een optimaal fokbeleid eruit moet zien. De fokresultaten op een dergelijk bedrijf worden door veel factoren beinvloed, zoals de populatie-omvang en -structuur, de omvang van de uitgangspopulatie en de toe te passen selectie- en paringsstrategie. Effecten van variatie in een aantal van deze factoren op de fokresultaten en de inteelttoename zijn onderzocht. De studie kan, naast varkens- en koeienfokkers, ook van betekenis zijn voor bijvoorbeeld fokkers van zeldzame huisdieren

Cum laude graduation Among the factors hindering the conservation of crop genetic resources is a lack of essential information regarding this diversity. Questions include: (a) what is the status of diversity in our food systems, and where are the greatest vulnerabilities?, (b) where can genetic diversity be found that can be useful in increasing productivity and mitigating these vulnerabilities?, (c) is this genetic diversity available in the present and in the long term?, and (d) what steps are needed to improve the ability for researchers to access genetic resources critical for present and future crop improvement? This thesis aims to contribute to the knowledge required to answer these questions through an exploration of the need for, potential of, challenges and constraints regarding, and necessary steps to enhance the conservation and use of crop genetic diversity.
