Whilst the Afrikaners (Boers) migrated northward from the Cape to flee British rule, they enountered the Zulu humans. to guard their claims, the Boers shaped the laager, a circle of wagons. As years handed, the laager received wider political dimensions and have become a logo of Afrikaner selection to outlive below adversarial stipulations.

2011). Accurate identification of, and discrimination between, cultivars requires the use of a large number of morphological markers and exploration of additional biochemical and molecular markers (See Sect. 1). Intracultivar stability of a few morphometric traits, including percent spined midrib, apical divergence angle, maximal pinnae width at leaf top, percent solitary spines, spine length at the middle and maximal spine angle, has been used for accurate cultivar identification. These traits helped cluster cultivars according to their fruit characteristics (Hammadi et al.
1 (continued) c Phoenix, there is little doubt that the wild P. dactylifera forms are indigenous to the warm and dry parts of the Middle East (Zohary and Hopf 2000). Three wild Phoenix spp. grow on the fringe of traditional date cultivation in the Old World, and they may have enriched the gene pool of the cultivated fruit trees through spontaneous hybridization. These are P. atlantica which grows near the Atlantic shore of North Africa, and it is apparently involved in the formation of some Moroccan date cultivars; bushy P.
A. Jaradat Knowledge of spatial patterns of genetic differentiation of date palm populations is key to understanding important processes, such as evolutionary mechanisms of differentiation and ecological or conservation consequences of loss of genetic diversity. ) (Gaitto et al. 2003) suggested that population dynamics can significantly affect evolutionary factors such as selection and genetic drift and consequently have important impacts on the genetic structure of date palm populations. 3 Genetics and Breeding System Domestication and subsequent cultivation of the dioecious date palm was founded on a breeding system of mixed clonal-sexual mode of reproduction system which shaped its dispersal and evolution under domestication (Terral et al.
