World production and phenotypic biodiversity of V. faba. a First 10 producers of broad and horse beans in 2018 (tons). The greatest world producer is China, followed by Ethiopia. (Own elaboration from FAO data available in: http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/QC). b Dry seeds of V. faba having different size (from small to large) and coat color (greenish-beige, violet and light brown), as an example of phenotipic biodiversity within the species. Their unambiguous identification number and geographic origin are: a = 112082 (Morocco); b = 106560 (Sicily, Italy); c = 110195 (Apulia, Italy); d = 108425 (Egypt); e = 110184 (Apulia, Italy); f = 111894 (Lybia). The samples are from the Institute of Biosciences and Bioresources of the National Research Council of Italy (IBBR-CNR). More information about them and the collecting site are available in the Mediterranean Germplasm Database, available in: http://ibbr.cnr.it/mgd/?action=search&p=spp
