The research station where Fairchild worked in Florida was closed in 1923 and was replaced by what is now the SHRS
The Egyptian SHRS
is a good case example of such leaders and their position of political cohesion with the state, which places them outside of the scope of this article.
Schnell and fellow SHRS
plant geneticists Steve Brown, David Kuhn, and Cecile Tondo, along with Mars and international cooperators (see box), have developed a marker-assisted selection (MAS) program for breeders.
Since then, Meerow and SHRS horticulturalist Tomas Ayala-Silva have continued to work with this variety with the tropical landscape horticulture industry in mind.
Since 2001, the SHRS researchers have been using molecular tools to investigate the genetics of Fiji Dwarf and other varieties.
It is possible that the material now being cultivated at SHRS represents fully resistant stock, but further research needs to be done to confirm that.
While earliest plantings of mango germplasm at SHRS occurred in the 1920s, the first mango introductions to Florida date back to around 1880.
Schnell has been working with SHRS colleagues--geneticists Steve Brown, Cecile Olano, David Kuhn, and Alan Meerow--to use microsatellite markers to evaluate the genetic diversity in the large collections of mangoes maintained at STIRS and at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, also in Miami.
Leaf material used in this study, maintained at the SHRS germplasm repository, was broadly categorized into groups by geographic origin: Florida, India, Hawaii, Central America, South America, Africa, Israel, and the Pacific.
They named this particular variety Chapman Field to acknowledge the work done at SHRS
, which is located on what used to be the U.
Seelman's leadership, SHRS is following a number of possible sources of funding to establish an International Institute for Rehabilitation Sciences.
India village to village exchanges; problem-based state of the art and technology transfer conferences and develop distance education-delivered train the trainer and best practices curricula based upon existing SHRS curricula.
