Plant domestication is evolution in a human-made environment. A diversity “bottleneck” changed the sample of genes passing from one generation to another. Today’s crops depend on humans for habitat and propagation because some of desired traits are often maladaptive in nature. Legume genetic resources (wild species, landraces, cultivars, breeding lines, segregating populations, genetic stocks and mutants) are most often used for studying genetic diversity, agro-morphological and nutritional quality traits, and host plant resistance to pathogens and insect pests. They also offer means for understanding plant domestication. Their diversity also shows a great potential for improving crops. Advances in omics are providing new knowledge for using this germplasm diversity in legume genetic enhancement.
