The teosinte Zea nicaraguensis, which is adapted to frequently flooded lowlands, is considered a valuable germplasm resource for the development of flooding-tolerant maize. This species can form constitutive root aerenchyma under well-drained conditions. The objectives of this study were to screen Z. nicaraguensis accessions for the capacity to form constitutive aerenchyma, to obtain progeny with differing degrees of aerenchyma formation, and to compare the flooding tolerance of these progeny… CONTINUE READING
