The diversity of high molecular weight (HMW) glutenin subunits of 502 varieties of durum wheat (Triticum durum) from 23 countries was studied using sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). Twenty-nine types of patterns were observed with 18 mobility bands. A total of 18 alleles were identified by comparing the mobilities of(More)
 Osmotic adjustment (OA) was previously demonstrated to be an important adaptive mechanism of drought tolerance in cereals. In order to determine which genomic regions are involved in OA variation, 187 barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a cross between Tadmor (drought tolerant) and Er/Apm (susceptible) were studied in a(More)
Aegilops geniculata Roth is an annual grass relative to cultivated wheats and is widely distributed in North Africa. In order to understand the diversity of this species, 14 populations collected in different bioclimatic areas in northern Algeria were analyzed using morphological and biochemical characters. Principal component analyses (PCA) based on the(More)
A collection of fifty-two Aegilops accessions belonging to three tetraploid, self-pollinated species (Ae. cylindrica Host, Ae. geniculata Roth and Ae. neglecta Req. ex Bertol.) and sampled from different eco-geographical regions of Bulgaria was evaluated during three successive years on the basis of morphological descriptors and agronomical characters.(More)
The effect of water stress on plant water status and net photosynthetic gas exchange (PN) in six barley genotypes (Hordeum vulgare L.) differing in productivity and drought tolerance was studied in a controlled growth chamber. Osmotic adjustment (OA), PN, stomatal conductance (gs), and the ratio intercellular/ambient. CO2 concentration (Ci/Ca) were(More)
A collection comprising 157 Aegilops geniculata accessionsoriginating from different ecogeographical regions was established atENSA-INRA, Montpellier. The accessions were studied for physiologicaltraits related to drought and heat stress and screened for resistance tobarley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) and rusts. Some accessions were alsotested for resistance(More)
Osmotic adjustment, accumulation of soluble saccharides, and photosynthetic gas exchange were studied in five durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var. durum) and one wild emmer wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var. dicoccoïdes) cultivars of contrasting drought tolerance and yield stability. Soil water contents (SWC) were 100, 31, 20, and 12 % of maximum capillary(More)
The possibility of using proline accumulation and fluorescence inhibition as predictive tests for drought tolerance in durum wheat has been investigated. The drought susceptibility of 25 genotypes was evaluated by comparing yields and yield components in irrigated and non irrigated conditions in the field. A drought susceptibility index (DSI) was calculated(More)
For durum wheat, we promote the use of carbon isotope discrimination (delta) as an indirect selection criterion for transpiration efficiency and grain yield (GY), and we identify the most effective organ for characterising delta genotypic variation. A field experiment was conducted in the South of France on 144 accessions, with a drought period occurring(More)
