Introduction
The preservation of genetic resources is essential especially when witnessing an erosion of many species. The practical and economic impact of preservation and conservation of this genetic diversity is critical both in terms of fodder production as the protection of the environment. Regarding the different forage species involved, the Special Issue’s objectives focus the evaluation, conservation and improvement of genetic resources by means of marking phenotypic and molecular typing. The expected results of this axis have both fundamental and applications not only agricultural but also in the management of resources.

Aims and Scope:


1. The main aim of this Special Issue is to provide information about the diversity of the forage and pastures resources, their morphological characterization and agronomic evaluation of potential, the relationship between spontaneous and cultivated forms local, the genetic diversity both within species and interspecific, the genotypes tolerant to salinity and aridity, the highlight of a range of molecular markers targeting different regions of the genome to enhance the forage resources especially in arid and semi-arid areas, the QTL detection associated with agronomic traits of interest will be a great contribution in improving molecular assisted by local populations well adapted.

2. This Special Issue publishes original papers, reviews, short communications, technical notes, and short notes.
