According to a widely accepted theory on barley domestication, wild barley (Hordeum vulgare ssp. spontaneum) from the Fertile Crescent is the progenitor of all cultivated barley (H. vulgare ssp. vulgare). To determine whether barley has undergone one or more domestication events, barley accessions from three continents have been studied (a) using 38 nuclear SSR (nuSSRs) markers, (b) using five chloroplast SSR (cpSSR) markers yielding 5 polymorphic loci and (c) by detecting the differences in a… Expand
Multivariate Patterns of Diversity in Ethiopian Barleys
TLDR
Ethiopian barleys (Hordeum vulgare L.) form a very distinct group, with unique diversity in resistance to certain diseases and in morphology, but the average DNA marker or nucleotide diversity is substantially less than barley from the Fertile Crescent. Expand
Genetic diversity and population structure of wild and cultivated barley from West Asia and North Africa
TLDR
High diversity and the close relationship to the wild barley make the WANA landraces an interesting genetic resource for both conservation and exploitation. Expand
Patterns of genetic and eco-geographical diversity in Spanish barleys
TLDR
The existence of wide genetic diversity in Spanish germplasm, possibly related to adaptation to a broad range of environmental conditions, and its divergence from current European cultivars confirm its potential as a new resource for barley breeders, and make the SBCC a valuable tool for the study of adaptation in barley. Expand
Genetic diversity of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) landraces from the central highlands of Ethiopia: comparison between the Belg and Meher growing seasons using morphological traits
TLDR
The diversity within population was higher in the season where barley is more important (Belg), and in general, where its cultivation is in larger plots because of weaker ‘competition’ with others crops, indicating that barley diversity has a complex relationship with variations in the surrounding agro-ecosystem. Expand
A study of genetic diversity of colored barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) using SSR markers
TLDR
A complex evolutionary relationship existed among the four colored barley populations and may have been the result of long-term multidirectional selection by humans on the basis of barley use. Expand
Efficient Barley Breeding
TLDR
Barley production traditionally has been important in the world, but in the recent two decades, the area has been declining from more than 80 Mha to around 55 Mha, and Russia, the United States, India, and China are the major countries showing the significant decrease in barley cropping area.

Genetic diversity of ICARDA’s worldwide barley landrace collection
TLDR
Results associated with parsimony analysis demonstrate that H. agriocrithon and H. spontaneum might be distinct and do not support a hybrid origin for H. Agriocrithson, suggesting further investigation of the basis of more intense sampling of the two subspecies. Expand
Molecular Insights on the Domestication of Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
TLDR
The domestication genes that underlie morphological trait changes in the evolutionary history of barley are discussed and revealed that drastic changes in gene function occurred during domestication. Expand
Co-evolution of methods and thoughts in cereal domestication studies: a tale of barley (Hordeum vulgare).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the evolution of thoughts on barley domestication closely followed the development of views on the rise of agriculture in the Near East in general and greatly accelerated with the advent of the genomic technologies and resources available for barley research. 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

On the origin and domestication history of Barley (Hordeum vulgare).
TLDR
The results provided support for the hypothesis that the Israel-Jordan area is the region in which barley was brought into culture and the Himalayas can be considered a region of domesticated barley diversification. Expand
Chloroplast DNA microsatellite analysis supports a polyphyletic origin for barley
TLDR
A polyphyletic origin is proposed for barley, with further centres of origin in Ethiopia and the Western Mediterranean, and the existence of haplotypes found in the HV landraces and cultivars but not in the HS wild barley. Expand
Chloroplast DNA diversity in populations of wild and cultivated barley.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the need for assessing intraspecific cpDNA variability prior to choosing single accessions for phylogenetic constructions at the species level and higher and show that the cpDNA of cultivated barley is less variable than its wild ancestor. Expand
The distinctness and diversity of Ethiopian barleys
TLDR
The major finding was that the Ethiopian germplasm appears to be significantly less diverse than the modern germplas but that it is genotypically very distinct. Expand
A barley cultivation-associated polymorphism conveys resistance to powdery mildew
TLDR
Haplotype analysis is used to show that the mlo-11 allele probably arose once after barley domestication, and infer cis-dependent perturbation of transcription machinery assembly by transcriptional interference in mLo-11 plants as a likely mechanism leading to disease resistance. Expand
Chloroplast and Mitochondrial DNA Variation in HORDEUM VULGARE and HORDEUM SPONTANEUM.
TLDR
Comparison of organelle nucleotide Diversity estimates with an estimate of nuclear nucleotide diversity derived from existing isozyme data provided evidence that both organelle genomes are evolving at a slower rate than the nuclear genome. Expand
Further evidence supporting Morocco as a centre of origin of barley
TLDR
It is suggested that barley domestication could also have taken place outside the Fertile Crescent, particularly in Morocco, and UPGMA clustering produced a dendrogram where three clusters could be defined. 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
Morocco as a possible domestication center for barley: biochemical and agromorphological evidence
TLDR
The distribution of genetic variants of a group of low molecular weight, chloroform-methanol soluble proteins (CM proteins) among Moroccan and non-Moroccan accessions of Hordeum spontaneum and among selections from several Moroccan landraces of H. vulgare suggests that domestication of barley might have taken place in Morocco.

TLDR
The population genetics and ecology of two important progenitors of cereals wild, wheat and barley are illustrated, showing how complementary in situ and ex situ conservation is imperative across the geographic range of these species, to safeguard their immensely important genetic resources for crop improvement.
