Genetic variation in walnuts ( Juglans regia and J. sigillata ; Juglandaceae): Species distinctions, human impacts, and the conservation of agrobiodiversity in Yunnan, China

Gunn, Bee; Aradhya, Mallikarjuna; Salick, Jan M.; Miller, Allison J.; Yongping, Yang; Lin, Liu; Xian, Hai


Walnuts are a major crop of many countries and mostly cultivated in large-scale plantations with few cultivars. Landraces provide important genetic reservoirs; thus, understanding factors influencing the geographic distribution of genetic variation in crop resources is a fundamental goal of agrobiodiversity conservation. Here, we investigated the role of human settlements and kinship on genetic variation and population structure of two walnut species: Juglans regia, an introduced species widely...[Show more]
