That worried me too. Unless the survivor seeds for each generation were
grouped to each locality with conditions of climate, soil and prevailing pests
you are not going to get a useful shift in the gene pool as the requirements
of any given locality are at risk of counteracting the others. It reads like

will be little change unless the starting stock's genome had a weakness that
all (or most) locations would alter for the better. Why would you start with
