Genetic variability of foxtail millet (Setaria italica P. Beauv.)
SummaryThe genetic diversity of a world collection of foxtail millet strains (Setaria italica) and some samples of wild populations (Setaria viridis) was studied by means of electrophoresis on fiveExpand

Gametophytic competition as influencing gene flow between wild and cultivated forms of pearl millet (Pennisetum typhoides)
Intergametophytic competitions with prepotency of autopollen have been previously described in some cultivated lines of pearl millet (Pennisetum typhoides (Burm.) Stapf &Hubb.). This paper reportsExpand

The wild-weed-crop complex in Setaria: a hybridization study
Evidence is given of spontaneous hybridizations between cultivated foxtail millet (Setaria italica) and its wild relative the green foxtail (S. viridis). Such a cross produces F2 plants similar toExpand

Use of wild Setaria viridis (L.) Beauv. to improve triazine resistance in cultivated S. italica (L.) by hybridization
Summary Interspecific hybrids were obtained between two triazine-resistant forms of the wild species Setaria viridis and the triazine-susceptible cultivated foxtail millet (Setaria italica). TheExpand

Breeding foxtail millet (Setaria italica) for quantitative traits after interspecific hybridization and polyploidization
An interspecific cross was carried out between the cultivated foxtail millet, Setaria italica, and its wild relative the green foxtail, S. viridis. Quantitative characters (19 descriptors ofExpand

Inheritance of some marker genes in Setaria italica (L.) P. Beauv.
SummaryA study on a series of genetic markers was run on five hybrids of foxtail millet, Setaria italica, and on one interspecific hybrid S. viridisxS. italica (S. viridis is the wild relative of S.Expand

The identification of cultivated pearl millet (Pennisetum) amongst plant impressions on pottery from Oued Chebbi (Dhar Oualata, Mauritania)
The majority of the neolithic pottery from Dhar Tichitt and Oualata bears abundant plant impressions on its surface. The present study involves direct examination of these impressions and comparsionExpand
