Accounting for variation in designing greenhouse experiments with special reference to greenhouses containing plants on conveyor systems
(BioMed Central, 2013)
Background: There are a number of unresolved issues in the design of experiments in greenhouses. They include whether statistical designs should be used and, if so, which designs should be used. Also, are there thigmomorphogenic ...
Heat susceptibility of grain filling in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) linked with rapid chlorophyll loss during a 3-day heat treatment
Brief heat events (1–3 days, >30 °C) commonly reduce wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) grain size and consequently yield. To identify mechanisms of tolerance to such short heat events, 36 wheat genotypes were treated under ...
Variation in shoot tolerance mechanisms not related to ion toxicity in barley
Soil salinity can severely reduce crop growth and yield. Many studies have investigated salinity tolerance mechanisms in cereals using phenotypes that are relatively easy to measure. The majority of these studies measured ...
Mapping of novel salt tolerance QTL in an Excalibur× Kukri doubled haploid wheat population
Novel QTL for salinity tolerance traits have been detected using non-destructive and destructive phenotyping in bread wheat and were shown to be linked to improvements in yield in saline fields. Abstract Soil salinity ...
A QTL on the short arm of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) chromosome 3B affects the stability of grain weight in plants exposed to a brief heat shock early in grain filling
(BioMed Central, 2016)
Background: Molecular markers and knowledge of traits associated with heat tolerance are likely to provide breeders with a more efficient means of selecting wheat varieties able to maintain grain size after heat waves during ...
Mapping of novel salt tolerance QTL in an Excalibur × Kukri doubled haploid wheat population
