Morphological and molecular characterization of Libyan olive, Olea europaea l., cultivars (42 local and 16 wild type) in comparison to 41 introduced (world) cultivars
Olive (Olea europaea L.) consumption and production are important socially and economically in Libya. Olive cultivars that are adapted to local conditions produce olives that have high quality and quantities of oil. Many of the important olive cultivars grown in Libya were evaluated in this research. One goal of this project was to determine the plasticity of morphological traits of olive cultivars that have been grown at diverse locations within Libya. A second goal was to identify a set of traits that are independent of each other and show limited variation (stable traits) regardless of the ...
