Abstract:
The genetic variability of the ex situ cultivated plants of Ribes sardoum, obtained from seeds collected from the unique natural population, was investigated. Our results revealed that plants cultivated ex situ captured a higher amount of genetic diversity and this will be useful in future translocation of this threatened species.
