Chiasmata and the breeding system in wild populations of diploid wheats

Abstract

Seven populations of the selfer Triticum longissimum (= Aegilops longissima) and five populations of the closely related outbreeder T. speltoides (= Ae. speltoides) were scored for chiasma frequencies in pollen mother cells. The populations of the selfer have significantly higher frequencies of chiasmata than the outbreeding populations. This difference… (More)
