Abstract

Examines the biogeography of cultivars belonging to Solanum stenotomum, S. goniocalyx, S. × chaucha and S. tuberosum subsp. andigena. Diverse conspecific cultivars of native potato species are not distributed in fine-grained elevational microenvironments but rather are clustered in geographic micro-regions (so-called cultivar regions). The concentration of cultivars with endemic distributions in areal clusters is shaped primarily by seed-exchange networks. -from Author
