PGR Forum Crop Wild Relative Catalogue for Europe and the Mediterranean

This page lists the subtaxa contained in the taxon that you have selected, and also synonyms for the taxon.

If you selected a genus:

  • Species highlighted in bold are those that are known to be cultivated as recorded by three of the four crop list sources (Agricultural and Horticultural Crops, Forestry Crops, and Ornamental plants). See the introduction to CWRIS for further information.

  • All other species are the wild relatives of the crop species contained in the Catalogue. To read the PGR Forum definition of a crop wild relative, click here.

  • For more information about a species, click on one of the taxon links.

If you selected a species:

  • If the species you have selected is known to be cultivated, it will be labelled as a Crop.

  • Subspecific taxa are shown where they exist.

  • If a PGR Forum case study is available for the taxon, it will be labelled Case study. Click on the link to view detailed information about this taxon.

  • The geographical distribution of the species is also shown. By clicking on one of the geographical units, you will be taken back to a list of taxa that occur in that unit.

Click on the link to Euro+Med Plantbase for:

  • Full taxon nomenclature with references and citations.

  • Status of occurrence of a taxon, i.e. whether it is native, introduced or cultivated in a particular geographic unit.
