|Title:||Biodiversity and genetic resources of forage legumes in Brazil.|

|Description:||Abstract: The use of forage legumes in tropical areas, besides the biological fixation capacity of atmospheric nitrogen, contributes to improve the nutritive value of animal diets. Despite its importance in various production systems, the adoption of new tropical legume germplasm has been inexpressive in several Latin American countries, even when germplasm lines and improved cultivars are available, as the case of Brazil, where more than 2500 germplasm accessions were tested and 50 cultivars are registered for commercialization. Regarding the tree legumes, much of the work that was developed was concentrated in only four genera Cratylia Leucaena Gliricidia and Sesbania which resulted in 10 cultivars releases. However, the level of adoption of these cultivars is very low.|
