Plant Genetic Resources of Sikkim


Sikkim Himalaya is an unique ecosystem encompassing tropical, temperate and alpine vegetation types. Lepchas and Bhutias consume many native species as subsistence foods at high altitudes. Wild relatives of crop plants like Musa balbisiana, Phoenix rupicola, Mangifera sylvatica, Coffea bengalensis, Camellia kisxi, Malus sikkitnensis, Fragaria daltoniana, Myristica longifolia, Allium walhchii, and Avena aspera constitute some of the genetic resources for assessment and development.
