Phenotype/genotype associations for yield and salt tolerance in a barley mapping population segregating for two dwarfing genes.
Barley traits related to salt tolerance are mapped in a population segregating for a dwarfing gene associated with salt tolerance. Twelve quantitative trait loci (QTLs) were detected for sevenExpand

Detection of quantitative trait loci for agronomic, yield, grain and disease characters in spring barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) have been revealed for characters in a segregating population from a spring barley cross between genotypes adapted to North-West Europe. Transgressive segregation wasExpand

Gel observation chamber for rapid screening of root traits in cereal seedlings
A simple gel chamber is described for measurement of seedling root traits. Seedlings are located between two closely spaced flat layers of transparent gel, on plastic plates (at least one of which isExpand

The development and application of molecular markers for abiotic stress tolerance in barley.
This article represents some current thinking and objectives in the use of molecular markers to abiotic stress tolerance. Barley has been chosen for study as it is an important crop species, as wellExpand

Quantitative Trait Loci for Germination and Malting Quality Characters in a Spring Barley Cross
Absence of dormancy and good malting quality are significant targets of many barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) breeding programs. Expression of dormancy is strongly affected by the environment, and maltingExpand

Wild barley: a source of genes for crop improvement in the 21st century?
The development of new barleys tolerant of abiotic and biotic stresses is an essential part of the continued improvement of the crop. The domestication of barley, as in many crops, resulted in aExpand

Using stable isotope natural abundances (delta 15N and delta 13C) to integrate the stress responses of wild barley (Hordeum spontaneum C. Koch.) genotypes.
To integrate the complex physiological responses of plants to stress, natural abundances (delta) of the stable isotope pairs 15N/14N and 13C/12C were measured in 30 genotypes of wild barley (HordeumExpand

A procedure for standardizing comparative leaf anatomy in the Poaceae. I. The leaf-blade as viewed in transverse section
Descriptive “keys”, including definitions and diagrams, for standardizing and simplifying the description of grass leaf structure as seen in transverse section are given. Over 500 characters areExpand
