Pew has posted the presentations from its conference on gene flow in maize. It is hard to get much out of these slide shows, except for a sense of the incredible diversity, in pictures [pdf] and words:
NAL TEL, PALOMERO TOLUQUE�O, ARROCILLO, CHAPALOTE, CACAHUACINTLE, DULCE, OLOTON, HARINOSO DE OCHO, CONICO, REVENTADOR, TABLONCILLO, TEHUA, TEPECINTLE, COMITECO, JALA, ZAPALOTE CHICO, ZAPALOTE GRANDE, PEPITILLA, OLOTILLO, TUXPE�O, VANDE�O, CHALQUE�O, CELAYA, CONICO NORTE�O, BOLITA
Update: Even the USDA is worried about declining maize diversity.
