Chapter
Thymus vulgaris L., garden thyme, has a long history of use by humans. This perennial semi-evergreen shrub is used today as an aromatic plant to flavor food liqueurs and herb blends and as a medicinal plant for its antimicrobial and antioxidative properties to treat various diseases such as bronchitis and gastrointestinal distress. T. vulgaris is a...
Article
The Alpine wormwood Artemisia vallesiaca All. was considered the most valuable ingredient of vermouth, a celebrated aromatized wine. A. vallesiaca has a very limited geographical distribution, and the booming market of vermouth decimated its natural population, resulting in the eventual replacement of this rare species with more common and less exp...
Article
BACKGROUND: Goji berries, traditionally used in Chinese medicine, are nowadays gaining popularity in the Western world. The efforts are made to establish their cultivation in Europe. Goji berries might derive from two closely related species: Lycium barbarum and Lycium chinense, however, plant species is rarely stated by commercial suppliers. OBJEC...

The agronomical potential and the phytochemical variability of 18 genotypes of the Paraguayan plant Stevia rebaudiana have been investigated in Switzerland in order identify the best genotype for local cultivation. Over a two years period, yields in dry leaves ranged from 10 to 170 g m-2, with a percentage of leaves ranging from 53 to 75 %. HPLC an...

Rhodiola rosea L. is an arctic–alpine perennial species. Genetic structure and relationships of 16 populations from the high mountains of Europe have been characterized by the use of microsatellite markers. Mean expected heterozygosity (He) was 0.73, ranging from 0.51 to 0.74 in the populations studied. The genetic relationships among the populatio...

'Ribolla Gialla' is an extremely old grape cultivated in the Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia in the provinces of Gorizia and Udine. Once part of the Venetian Republic, Friuli-Venezia Giulia has been for long time an important stop along the Mediterranean spice route from the Byzantine Empire to the trading centre of Venice. During the Middle A...
Article
Achillea collina is cultivated in the European Alps for its chamazulenecontaining essential oil. In Switzerland, 'Spak' is a homogenous and productive cultivar that was developed by Agroscope to match the local climatic conditions. Up to now, Swiss producers used to harvest at the BBCH stage 65 (>50% of plants blooming) and at 15-20 cm from the gro...

Rhodiola rosea, also called Golden Root or Roseroot, is an adaptogenic medicinal plant from alpine and arctic regions that is known to reduce stress, trauma, anxiety and fatigue. The main active compounds are salidroside and rosavins (rosarin, rosavin, rovin). Five populations from the Swiss Alps were screened for their salidroside and rosavins con...

Müller-Thurgau' has recently been proven to be a cross between 'Riesling' and 'Madeleine Royale', a 19th century cross whose parents are unknown. Parentage analysis based on 93 grape cultivars of central Europe genotyped at 57 microsatellites provides here evidence that 'Madeleine Royale' = 'Pinot' x 'Schiava Grossa'. Since 'Riesling' is known to b...

In order to optimise quality and yield performance of thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.) a breeding programme was carried out and 56 new hybrids were obtained by crossing male sterile and male fertile clones. These hybrids were tested from 2000 to 2002 by evaluating homogeneity, yield in dry weight and essential oil, winter frost tolerance, as well as seed...

Four newly bred Swiss medicinal and aromatic plant (MAP) cultivars have been tested during 1997-2002 under Finnish climatic conditions: Achillea collina 'Spak', Thymus vulgaris 'Varico-1', Alchemilla xanthochlora 'Aper' and Hyssopus officinalis 'Perlay'. The experiments have been carried out in three research stations (South, South-East and North F...

The Swiss Vitis Microsatellite Database (SVMD) provides the genotypes at six microsatellites (VVMD5, VVMD7, VVMD27, VVS2, VrZAG62, and VrZAG79) for 171 Vitis spp. accessions (103 Vitis vinifera cultivars, 20 interspecific crosses, 16 rootstocks, and 32 wild grapevines) cultivated in Switzerland. The SVMD is online at www.unine.ch/nccr/svmd (open ac...

Golden root or roseroot (Rhodiola rosea L.) is a dioecious and perennial plant of the Crassulaceae family. This arctico-alpine species is widely used in traditional medicines in Russia and in Scandinavia to fight against stress, to stimulate the immune system and to increase physical and mental performances. The active compounds, mainly salidroside...

Le 'Chasselas' est un des cépages blancs les plus répandus dans le monde. De nombreuses légendes existent au sujet de son origine: il aurait été rapporté d'Egypte ou de Turquie, il serait né en France ou en Suisse, etc. Les premières mentions du 'Chasselas' apparaissent aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles, d'abord dans le Württemberg (D), puis en Bourgogne (...

In the book is discussed the questions of conservation and investigation of local and introduced varieties of grapevine and fruit crops. It is dedicated to wide auditory of researchers, professors and teachers of high schools, students and agriculturists interesting problems of germplasm.

According to Pliny the Elder and other Greco-Roman geoponics, Raetica was a famous white grape as well as a white wine produced in Raetia, a Province of the Roman Empire. Does Raetica grape have modern descendants? Etymologically and geographically, the white ‘Rèze’ from Valais (Switzerland) would be the best candidate. Using available microsatelli...

A previous microsatellite study pointed out a pos-sible parent-offspring relationship between 'Sangio-vese', the most widespread red grape cultivar in Italy, and 'Ciliegiolo', an ancient Tuscan variety. Testing 'Sangiovese' as a parent of 'Ciliegiolo', we searched for the putative other parent in our extensive, private and standardized database, bu...

We present here the first large-scale genetic characterization of grape cultivars from Transcaucasia and Anatolia. These regions where wild grapes still grow in nature have been cultivating wine and table grapes for thousands of years and are considered the cradles of viticulture. Using 12 nuclear microsatellite markers, we genotyped 116 accessions...

Since the domestication of wild grapes ca 6000 years ago, numerous cultivars have been generated by spontaneous or deliberate crosses, and up to 10 000 are still in existence today. Just as in human paternity analysis, DNA typing can reveal unexpected parentage of grape cultivars. In this study, we have analysed 89 grape cultivars with 60 microsate...

A total of 114 accessions putatively corresponding to 69 local grape cultivars from Campania (Southern Italy) were analysed with 8 microsatellite markers (VVS2, VVMD5, VVMD7, VVMD25, VVMD27, VVMD31, VrZAG62 and VrZAG79) in order to evaluate their genetic diversity and relationships. According to their unique geno-type at SSR loci finally 56 varieti...

Four closely related white grape cultivars from the Western Alps (Switzerland) -Humagne Blanc, Completer, Lafnetscha and Himbertscha -and three putative relatives or synonyms -Gouais Blanc, Plantscher and Bordeaux Blanc -were analyzed with up to 50 microsatellite mark-ers. Humagne Blanc and Completer are ancient cultivars from the Haut-Valais and G...

Ancient and closely related grape cultivars from the Alps were analyzed with 50 microsatellite markers: 'Cornalin', 'Humagne Rouge' and 'Goron' from Valais (Switzerland); 'Cornalin', 'Petit Rouge' and 'Mayolet' from the Aosta Valley (Italy). Our results confirmed previous studies showing that the 'Cornalin' cultivars from Switzerland and Italy are...

Résumé En 2002, l'analyse des microsatellites, les marqueurs de choix pour le test de paternité par ADN, a permis de découvrir un lien génétique de type parent/enfant entre le 'Sangiovese', le cépage rouge le plus répandu en Italie, et le 'Ciliegiolo', un ancien cépage de la Toscane. Il n'avait cependant pas été possible de déterminer qui était le...
