 Farmer knowledge and plant genetic resource management - Paul Richards
At the subspecies level they recognize and respond to plant types, but diversity of plant types (and farmer response to this diversity) is not necessarily a good indicator of the variety/narrowness of the underlying genetic resource base.
From historical sources (Richards 1995) we know that farmers along the coast of Sierra Leone/Liberia have long managed rice genetic resources to maintain (through mass selection) distinct duration classes of planting material adapted to different soil and moisture conditions.
Richards (1986) describes a Mende rice-farming village in which members of the oldest land-owning group are believed to be elephants by origin, and revert to elephant existence when they die.
