Molecular detection of genomic regions associated with grain yield and yield-related components in an elite bread wheat cross evaluated under irrigated and rainfed conditions
Grain yield and grain weight of wheat are often decreased by water-limitation in the north-eastern cropping belt of Australia. Based on knowledge that CIMMYT lines are well-adapted in this region, aExpand

Correlation Between Water-Use Efficiency and Carbon Isotope Discrimination in Diverse Peanut (Arachis) Germplasm
Stable carbon isotope discrimination (Δ) showed both intraspecific and interspecific variations in leaves collected from field plants representing a wide range of peanut germplasm grown in similarExpand

Molecular Dissection of Variation in Carbohydrate Metabolism Related to Water-Soluble Carbohydrate Accumulation in Stems of Wheat1[W]
Water-soluble carbohydrates (WSCs; composed of mainly fructans, sucrose [Suc], glucose [Glc], and fructose) deposited in wheat (Triticum aestivum) stems are important carbon sources for grainExpand

Multi-environment QTL mixed models for drought stress adaptation in wheat
Many quantitative trait loci (QTL) detection methods ignore QTL-by-environment interaction (QEI) and are limited in accommodation of error and environment-specific variance. This paper outlines aExpand

Use of expression analysis to dissect alterations in carbohydrate metabolism in wheat leaves during drought stress
Water deficit in plants causes a reduction in photosynthesis and high demands for osmolyte synthesis. To elucidate regulation of carbohydrate metabolic genes in wheat (Triticum aestivum) leavesExpand

Heritability and Genotype × Environment Interactions of Carbon Isotope Discrimination and Transpiration Efficiency in Peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.)
The discrimination, Δ, against 13C in carbon accumulation by different genotypes of peanut was investigated by looking at changes in composition of isotopes of CO2 during CO2 assimilation and at theExpand

Variation for and relationships among biomass and grain yield component traits conferring improved yield and grain weight in an elite wheat population grown in variable yield environments
Grain yield and kernel size (grain weight) are important industry traits for wheat in the water-limited environments of the north-eastern wheatbelt of Australia. These, and underpinning morphologicalExpand

Genetic variation for carbon isotope discrimination in sunflower: Association with transpiration efficiency and evidence for cytoplasmic inheritance
Plants accumulate isotopes of carbon at different rates because of discrimination against C-13 relative to C-12. In plants that fix carbon by the C-3 pathway, the amount of discrimination correlatesExpand

Improving Genotypic Adaptation in Crops – a Role for Breeders, Physiologists and Modellers
Approaches using breeding, physiology and modelling for evaluating adaptation of plant genotypes to target environments are discussed and methods of characterizing the target environments outlined.Expand

TaNAC69 from the NAC superfamily of transcription factors is up-regulated by abiotic stresses in wheat and recognises two consensus DNA-binding sequences.
NAC proteins are one of the largest families of plant transcription factors and have recently been implicated in diverse physiological processes. To elucidate their role in gene regulation, weExpand
