Biochemical aspects of resistance to rust by barley
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1985)
In this work the in vivo RNA synthesis in the inoculated leaves of barley Hordeum vulgare L. cvs. Kakapo, Zephyr and DSIR725-02, was investigated using the inhibitor Actinomycin-D (Act-D). The results indicated that the ...
A study of the growth and development of yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.)
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1980)
The response of yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.) seedlings to reduced light, interference from barley (Hordeum vulgare) and some aspects of regeneration from rhizomes were the subject of investigations from 1976 until 1980. ...
The development of recombinant progency from crosses between Hordeum vulgare L. and H. bulbosum L.
(Lincoln University, 1992)
Crosses between Hordeum vulgare L. (cultivated barley) and H. bulbosum L. (bulbous barley grass) have been carried out for several decades to introgress desirable genes from the wild species into cultivated barley, but ...
Characterisation of plants regenerated from barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)-H. bulbosum L. hybrids
(Lincoln University, 1996)
Hordeum bulbosum L. is an obligatory outcrossing perennial grass and is considered to be the closest relative of cultivated barley, H. vulgare. H. bulbosum has many useful agronomic traits such as winterhardiness and drought ...
Assessment of IBPGR morphological descriptors in determining pattern within crop germplasm collections
(Lincoln University, 1990)
A series of experiments, using barley (Hordeum vulgare L. emend, Bowden) as an example, were designed to test whether or not the IBPGR taxonomic minimum descriptor lists ensure adequate diversity for subsequent research. ...
A physiological approach to disease yield loss relationships in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1987)
Methods for estimation of crop losses caused by disease are based largely on empirical models. Recently there has been an increased awareness that a more mechanistic approach with a greater understanding of the physiological ...
