Drought resistance is being increasingly labelled as being a 'complex trait', especially with the recent expansion of research into its genomics. There is a danger that this label may turn into an axiom that is liable to damage education on the subject as well as research and the delivery of solutions to the farmer. This opinionated review examines whether there is grounds for such an axiom. Drought resistance is labelled as a 'complex trait' mainly when viewed by molecular biologists from the… Expand
