Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A site for intensive population-genetic, ecological, pathology and other studies of the wild tetraploid wheat Triticum turgidum var. dicoccoides was set up in E Galilee, Israel. The objective of the study was to gain basic scientific information on a variable and representative population of this annual selfing wild cereal, the progenitor of durum and bread wheats, in the centre of its local distribution. The information gathered was to aid the rationalization of in situ conservation and sampling practices. Single-spike seed collections were made annually, and progenies distributed for parallel ex situ studies of different traits of the phenotype and genotype.
