Screening of worldwide cowpea collection to drought tolerant at a germination stage

The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of drought on seed germination and seedling emergence of cowpea genotypes, in order to screen the most tolerant genotypes. in Scientia Horticulturae, Volume 247: 107-115. Leia o trabalho completo aqui.

Evaluating stress responses in cowpea under drought stress

Drought impact on plants is an increasing concern under the climate change scenario. Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.) is considered as one of the most tolerant legume crops to drought, being the search for the best well-adapted genotypes crucial to face the future challenges. Different approaches have been used for differentiating plant responses to drought...

Cowpea: a legume crop for a challenging environment

The present review provides an overview of different aspects of cowpea, with a special emphasis on the molecular markers for assessing genetic diversity, as well as on biochemical and transcriptomic data with respect to evaluating cowpea drought stress tolerance. in Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, Volume 97, Issue 13.

European cowpea landraces for a more sustainable agriculture system and novel foods

Genetic diversity is fundamental to breeding programs and consequently has an important role in obtaining new varieties. To properly use the genetic diversity present in germplasm collections, a good knowledge of the agro‐morphological traits of each accession is needed. The aim of this study was to explore the production capacity of 24 cowpea landraces from...

Genetic diversity and structure of Iberian Peninsula cowpeas compared to world-wide cowpea accessions using high density SNP markers

The aims of this study were to explore diversity and the genetic structure of a set of Iberian Peninsula cowpea accessions in comparison to a worldwide collection and to infer possible dispersion routes of cultivated cowpea. in BMC Genomics volume 18, Article number: 891.
