The value of CWR for food security and the need for their conservation has recently been placed firmly on the international conservation agenda, but due to the large number of taxa that exist, coupled with limited resources, a means of setting priorities for their conservation is needed. Further, as CWR have largely been neglected by the conservation community, we face the challenge of identifying where and how to conserve them in situ. g. Brassica is a large genus compared to Avena, Beta and Patellifolia).
The list of taxa should show the accepted taxon name and authority and list primary synonyms with authorities. This is important because different information systems use different accepted taxonomies; therefore, when searching for information on a specific taxon it could be possible to miss important information if synonymy is not taken into account. P. Kell et al. 1). The genus Beta is divided into section Beta with three species and two subspecies, section Corollinae, which is composed of three base species and two hybrid species, as well as B.
