Abstract Resistance to clover cyst nematode (Heterodera trifolii) has been successfully transferred from Trifolium nigrescens to T. repens by interspecific hybridisation. A sterile triploid hybrid (H-6909-5, 2n=3x=24) was initially produced with the aid of embryo culture. The hybrid was chromosome-doubled from axillary meristems by an in vitro colchicine method. Three chromosome-doubled plants were obtained, and these showed a marked increase in pollen stainability from 10% in 3x H-6909-5 to an… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Variation for reproductive and agronomic traits among T. repens × T. nigrescens third generation backcross hybrids in the field
TLDR
Individual plants among the BC 3 generation were identified that combine high forage yield, substantial inflorescence production and good fertility, and these will form the basis of further selection. Expand
Plant-parasitic nematodes on pasture in New Zealand
TLDR
Progress made in white clover breeding programs in New Zealand is summarized and advances in genetic mapping and introgression as they affect resistance to nematodes are examined, together with observations which suggest that root-feeding nematode have little impact on yield and that the animal toxicity associated with Anguina seed galls in Australia is absent. Expand
Variation of Morphological and Agronomic Traits in Hybrids of Trifolium pratense × T. medium and a Comparison with the Parental Species
TLDR
There were significant differences between the hybrids and T. pratense in nearly all the analysed characteristics, except for the following ones: length/width ratio of a central leaflet of the trifoliate leaf on the 4 th internode under the top head, plant weight and head number per plant. Expand
Trifolium interspecific hybridisation: widening the white clover gene pool
TLDR
Interspecific hybrid breeding of white clover has the potential to enable the development of resilient perennial clovers for seasonally dry, infertile grassland environments in many parts of the world. Expand
Interspecific hybridization in the genus Trifolium
TLDR
The genus Trifolium (Leguminosae) or clovers includes a number of agriculturally important forage species, which are widely used in temperate livestock agriculture and shed considerable light on the systematics and evolution of the genus. Expand
The effect of interspecific hybridisation with Trifolium uniflorum on key white clover characteristics
TLDR
Some hybrid families were more superior than others at maintaining (or improving) characteristics of their specific white clover parental cultivars, such as DM production, stolon density, growth habit, and resistance to shoot fungal diseases and viruses, suggests it should be possible to develop elite hybrid breeding populations by recurrent selection of superior hybrid genotypes. Expand
Generation of interspecific hybrids between Trifolium vesiculosum and T. alexandrinum using embryo rescue
TLDR
The assessment of plantlet hybridity through SSR markers, micromorphological leaf traits (leaf texture and stomata) and morphological characters (plant height, leaflet length and width) confirmed production of two interspecific hybrids designated as AV1 and BV3 representing both the crosses. Expand
Variation in Response to Moisture Stress of Young Plants of Interspecific Hybrids between White Clover (T. repens L.) and Caucasian Clover (T. ambiguum M. Bieb.)
TLDR
Plants of Caucasian clover maintained a higher leaf relative water content and leaf water potential than white clover at comparable levels of drought, with the response of the backcrosses generally intermediate between the parents, according to the extent to which these differences influence the capacity to tolerate drought. Expand
Experimental evidence for the ancestry of allotetraploid Trifolium repens and creation of synthetic forms with value for plant breeding
TLDR
Evidence from DNA sequence analyses, molecular cytogenetics, interspecific hybridization and breeding experiments supports the hypothesis that a diploid alpine species hybridized with adiploid coastal species to generate tetraploid T. repens, a transgressive hybrid with a broad adaptive range. Expand
Widening the adaptation of white clover by incorporation of valuable new traits from wild clover species.
TLDR
Eight Trifolium species with contrasting adaptations were shown by DNA sequence phylogenetics to be closely related to white clover, and several of the new genomic combinations will improve prospects for extending the adaptive range ofwhite clover. Expand

Reproductive characters of interspecific hybrids between Trifolium repens L. and T. nigrescens Viv.
TLDR
A novel approach to interspecific hybridization using a closely related species within the genus Trifolium may be a means of extending the range of heritable variation useful in the breeding and selection of T. repens. Expand
Compatibility Reactions of Interspecific Hybrids Between Trifolium repens L. and T. nigrescens Viv.1
TLDR
The compatibility reactions of autoallohexaploid derivatives obtained by doubling the chromosome number of triploid (2n 24) T. reDens X T. nigrescens hybrids between undoubled species are investigated to compare the compatibility reactions with that of WN2. Expand
Interspecific Hybridisation Between Trifolium repens and T. uniflorum
TLDR
One F1 hybrid proved to be highly self-compatible, although derived from self-incompatible parent species, and several partially fertile hybrids were produced by embryo culture from crosses of the type T. repens and T. uniflorum. Expand
Development of the nematodes Meloidogyne hapla Chitwood and Heterodera trifolii Goffart in white clover.
TLDR
The development of Meloidogyne hapla and Heterodera trifolii was monitored and related to heat accumulation and plant size declined in a sigmoid curve pattern for both species and curves were fitted to the relative means. Expand
Doubling the Chromosome Number of Trifolium Species Using Nitrous Oxide1
TLDR
Ease and frequency of chromosome doubling was considerably higher and production of mixaploids was lower than in previously reported colchicine treatments and the treatment was toxic to T. hirtum All. Expand
A Fertile Interspecific Hybrid in Trifolium (4n T. repens L. x 4n T. nigrescens Viv.)
TLDR
Cytogenetic evidence concerning the hybrids suggests that T. nigrescens may be one of the ancestors of amphiploid T. repens, and the F1 and I1 progeny of these hybrids had 2n = 48. Expand
Production of tetraploid hybrids between Ornithopus pinnatus and O. sativus using embryo culture
TLDR
Four sterile diploid interspecific hybrids were obtained by pollinating precociously exserted stigmas of Ornithopus pinnatus with pollen from O. sativus while buds were still closed, and culturing the resulting hybrid embryos in vitro with nurse endosperm, suggesting that in situ maturation of seeds may be achieved in future generations. Expand
Resistance to Meloidogyne incognita in Trifolium interspecific hybrids and species related to white clover
TLDR
Due to its cross-fertility and high level of resistance, Trifolium nigrescens may be a valuable source of resistance to M. i. Expand
Cytology and fertility of Trifolium repens, T. ambiguum, T. hybridum, and interspecific hybrids
TLDR
Variable low fertility in the hybrids is not associated with gross meiotic abnormalities, but may be caused by genetic deficiencies resulting from independent assortment of intraspcific homoeologous chromosomes which normally assort together. Expand
Production of 2n Pollen in Red Clover1
TLDR
It is apparent from the results that 2n gametes may be useful in red clover polyploidization programs, and that this mechanism is genetically equivalent to a first division restitution (FDR) mode of gamete formation. Expand
