the amount of genetic variability for BRR tolerance in which the Nova Scotia cultivars Bounty, Cabot, and Cavendish were used as parents along with six other genotypes. Duplicate daughter plants of the progeny population were grown on fumigated and

variability as well as true genetic differences. This, however, does not invalidate the mass screening process but rather results may be specific to only one or a few plants within an accession (as opposed to a more uniform response that might be expected in a

cultivated varieties of C. frutescens have occurred largely as a result of human selection within existing varieties, and limited information is available in the scientific literature regarding variability for agronomic or horticultural traits within the

study investigating the genetic diversity in two other intermountain Allium species also found a high degree of within-species genetic variability not only in the narrowly restricted species ( A. aaseae ), but also in a widespread congener ( A

approaches to assess variability in clonal plants have been reported, but indistinguishable morphology has been difficult to characterize. Molecular markers have the ability to detect genetic variation and provide a reliable method to ensure the integrity of
