Human exploration and dispersal history of the coconut (Cocos nucifera L.)The impact of the coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) on the history of human dispersal in the tropics is unparalleled in the Plant a portable source of nutrition and water, the coconut played a critical role in the ability of early humans to voyage, establish trade routes, and colonize lands in the Pacific Rim. The main coconut producing countries are the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands. Its uses are so numerous and, as every part of the coconut palm is of some use, the coconut palm has been described as ‘one of Nature's greatest gifts to man’ (Burkill, ).

A total of 72D. citriand citrus tissue samples were collected from 78 sites on the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii.

Dramatic cultural and environmental changes in the Pacific Islands following World War II have had serious impacts on breadfruit germplasm. Although it is still a widely used staple crop, the cultivation and use of breadfruit is declining in many areas, and a number of cultivars have already disappeared or are becoming rare [15].

The myriad varieties found within cultivated plants are fundamental to the present and future productivity. The coconut palm, Cocos nucifera Linneaus , is a common component of forests on many tropical and subtropical islands and coastal ecosys-tems around the world, occurring in 86 countries across four continents (Harries et al. ). It often reaches mono-dominance in many low-lying tropi-cal atolls of the Pacific (Dombois & Fosberg ).

The coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) is valued across the Pacific for a wide range of uses (Massal and Barrau ; Barrau ; Yen ; Lepofsky in press). Archaeological (Kirch ) and linguistic evidence (ChowningFrench-Wright ) indicate that coconuts were part of the plant repertoire of the earliest Austronesian colonisers, and were doubtless an important economic item to those.

General approaches to collecting coconut germplasm. Collecting of nuts for ex situ conservation. Choose normal palms at random towards the middle of the population and take a sample of two nuts per palm to generate a total of nuts. If the number of palms in the population is too small, the number of sample nuts per palm can be increased.

The botanical name for coconut is Cocos nucifera and it is currently thought to have originated in the coastal areas of Southeast Asia and Melanesia. In prehistoric times, it spread naturally on ocean currents eastward to the tropical Pacific islands.

The project commenced in June and ran through December. Beyond the image of white sandy beaches and carefree lifestyles, the Pacific islands are facing serious health problems, the prime culprit being imported foods.
