The genealogical and geographic structure of variation in spikelet morphology was analyzed for central Eurasian wild wheat Aegilops tauschii Coss. using a diverse array of 203 sample accessions that represented the entire species range. In this sample set, two subspecies were identified on the basis of sensu-stricto criteria: only the accessions having markedly moniliform spikes were assigned to Ae. tauschii Coss. subspecies strangulata (Eig) Tzvel., whereas those having mildly moniliform and… CONTINUE READING
