1) Obtain germplasm of Amaranthus species in California, Arizona and New Mexico. 2) Document populations of the species from which germplasm is collected.
Germplasm of several Amaranthus species will be collected from wild populations in California, Arizona and New Mexico. Germplasm will be collected in the form of seeds and will be documented with locality, latitude and longitude, elevation, plant description and growing environment. Herbarium voucher specimens will be made when possible. Germplasm will be sent to the appropriate site of the USDA National Plant Germplasm System. A detailed trip report, including information on all samples obtained, will be provided to ARS.
