Remains of barley (Hordeum vulgare) grains found at archaeological sites in the Fertile Crescent indicate that about 10,000 years ago the crop was domesticated there from its wild relative Hordeum spontaneum. [...] Key Result The monophyletic nature of barley domestication is demonstrated based on allelic frequencies at 400 AFLP polymorphic loci studied in 317 wild and 57 cultivated lines. The wild populations from Israel-Jordan are molecularly more similar than are any others to the cultivated gene pool.Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

The Horn of Africa as a centre of barley diversification and a potential domestication site
TLDR
The data from chloroplast DNA clearly indicate that the wild barley (H. vulgare ssp. spontaneum) as it is found today in the “Fertile Crescent” might not be the progenitor of the barley cultivated in Eritrea (and Ethiopia) and an independent domestication might have taken place at the Horn of Africa. Expand
Evolutionary History of Wild Barley (Hordeum vulgare subsp. spontaneum) Analyzed Using Multilocus Sequence Data and Paleodistribution Modeling
TLDR
Spatial genetic variation in wild barley populations collected rather recently was analyzed, exploring sequence variations at seven single-copy nuclear loci, and the relationships among these populations and toward the genepool of the crop were inferred. Expand
Evaluation of genetic diversity of wild-type barley (Hordeum vulgare L. sub sp. Spontaneum) based on storage proteins polymorphism.
TLDR
The study of genetic distances showed that wild barley genotypes of Iraq and Turkey could be the nearest populations to modern cultivated barley samples and Fertile Crescent especially Iran, Iraq, South East of Turkey and Jordan could be main centers of diversity of wild barley H. Spontaneum. Expand
Nineteenth century seeds reveal the population genetics of landrace barley (Hordeum vulgare).
TLDR
It is shown that the study of historic material can be an important alternative for regions where no or little extant landrace material is available and differing levels of variation with some latitudinal effect. Expand
1 – Domestication and Improvement of Cultivated Barley
TLDR
This chapter reviewed origin and domestication of barley, distribution and growth habits, and environmental adaptation of wild barley, as well as utilization ofWild barley in breeding and the potential utilization of Tibetan wild barley in improvement of resistance to cold temperature and grain quality of cultivated barley. Expand
Evolution of Wild Barley and Barley Improvement
TLDR
The current global warming stresses H. spontaneum, and so it is imperative to conserve it in situ and ex situ to safeguard its future immense contribution to barley and cereal improvement, thereby helping to fight hunger. Expand
Genetic structure and geographical differentiation in barley landraces based on storage proteins
Although, It is now generally accepted that domestication of barley is assumed to have taken place from Hordeum vulgare L. subsp. spontaneum , however, it is not clear whether cultivated barley is ofExpand
Genetic Diversity in Barley (Hordeum vulgare L. ssp. vulgare) Landraces from Uttaranchal Himalaya of India
TLDR
The genetic differences between covered and naked barleys may be relevant to breeding programmes since the variability created through hybridisation between the contrasting forms could be exploited. Expand
Genomic analysis of 6,000-year-old cultivated grain illuminates the domestication history of barley
TLDR
The genome sequences of five 6,000-year-old barley grains excavated at a cave in the Judean Desert showed the close affinity of ancient samples to extant landraces from the Southern Levant and Egypt, consistent with a proposed origin of domesticated barley in the Upper Jordan Valley. Expand
Genetic Diversity, Evolution and Domestication of Wheat and Barley in the Fertile Crescent
TLDR
This chapter reviews recent developments in the understanding of wheat and barley domestication history in the Fertile Crescent, events that forged the foundations of the authors' present-day European culture. Expand

GENETIC DIVERSITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASSOCIATIONS OF WILD BARLEY, HORDEUM SPONTANEUM, IN ISRAEL
TLDR
The levels and patterns of adaptive genetic variation in natural populations of the wild progenitors of cultivated plants are still largely unknown and knowledge would contribute substantially to three important areas of inquiry, the general static and dynamic properties of genetic variation, the evolutionary process of domestication and the utility of wild gene pools in future plant breeding. Expand
Distribution of Wild Wheats and Barley
TLDR
It seems likely that, while all three early cereals were domesticated within an are flanking the fertile crescent, each was domesticated in a different subregion of the zone. Expand
AFLP variation in wild barley (Hordeum spontaneum C. Koch) with reference to salt tolerance and associated ecogeography.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the effectiveness of AFLP fingerprinting in genetic studies of complex traits at the wild species and (or) population level and show sharp genetic differences were detected between genotypes separated by relatively short distances. Expand
The barley Hooded mutation caused by a duplication in a homeobox gene intron
TLDR
It is concluded that homeotic genes of the Knox gene family are involved in floral evocation and the study of polarity of reproductive organs in K and related mutants can now focus on homeobox genes. Expand
Flavonoid patterns and the phylogeny of barley.
TLDR
By means of thin-layer chromatography, 1424 local varieties of barley were investigated and two collections of Hordeum spontaneum and H. agriocrithon were analysed, finding differences in frequency between the A and B patterns that were revealed when different areas were compared. Expand
A differential rate of regional distribution of barley flavonoid patterns in Ethiopia, and a view on the center of origin of barley.
TLDR
The concept for the centre of origin of barley is discussed, the ruling out of the possibility of Ethiopia being the centre for barley is questioned, and the need for archaelogical and genetical evidence on this issue is highly recommended. Expand
SITE OF EINKORN WHEAT DOMESTICATION IDENTIFIED BY DNA FINGERPRINTING
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis that was based on the allelic frequency at 288 amplified fragment length polymorphism molecular marker loci indicates that a wild group of Triticum monococcum boeoticum lines from the Karacadag mountains is the likely progenitor of cultivated einkorn varieties. Expand
Detection and analysis of genetic variation in Hordeum spontaneum populations from Israel using RAPD markers
TLDR
Randomly amplified polymorphic DNA markers were used to analyse genetic diversity within and between Hordeum spontaneum populations sampled from Israel, suggesting adaptive variation at certain RAPD loci. Expand

TLDR
Selfing appears to promote the development and maintenance of adaptedness within populations and at the same time to facilitate the development of spatial differentiation by retarding gene flow between populations. Expand
IS HORDEUM AGRIOCRITHON THE ANCESTOR OF SIX‐ROWED CULTIVATED BARLEY?
TLDR
The chromosomal aberrations of two types of fragmentation and bridge and fragment figures as reported here in P. peltatum are strikingly similar to those found in Paeonia californica and brownii as recently reported by Walters (1956, 1958). Expand
