Eventually, it is worth spending some time to study the populations at the limits of their natural distributions, as well as in stress environments. Note that these limits are often stress environments, where recessive characters will be more likely to appear. 4. ECTION DATA Perhaps a major difference with past germplasm exploration activities is the current emphasis on collection data. These data will become increasingly important for future germplasm utilization. Four types of data are of paramount importance: the collector's name and number, the place of collection (both the three coordinates: latitude, longitude, and altitude, and a geographical description: country, state or province, district or county, place name), the date of collection, and when relevant, a common or vernacular name.
