This work evaluated the effect of seed size and morphology on the development and biomass of durum wheat seedlings. Three different seed-grading sizes selected by sieving were used in glasshouse experiments, and a set of three developmental and 23 biomass-related indices were measured on eight genotypes, at two moisture levels. The influence of seed size on seedling development was studied at high and low temperatures (22\12 mC, and 15\5 mC day\night temperatures, respectively), in growth chambers. The area of the seed and the area of the embryo were the seed morphological traits most affected by seed size. Seed size was strongly associated with seedling development and seedling biomass until the complete extension of the first two leaves, at the fourth leaf stage. The rate of first-leaf growth and the area of the first leaf were the developmental and biomass traits, respectively, most sensitive to seed-grading size.

Dolors; Araus Ortega, José Luis (Crop Science Society of China and Institute of Crop Science, CAASElsevier, 2020-03-21)This study evaluates the changes caused by breeding in the genotype by environment (G × E) interaction of the durum wheat varieties most widely cultivated in Spain after the Green Revolution. A set of 12 cultivars was ...
Carbon Isotope Composition and the NDVI as Phenotyping Approaches for Drought Adaptation in Durum Wheat: Beyond Trait Selection Sánchez Bragado, Rut; Newcomb, Maria; Chairi, Fadia; Condorelli, Giuseppe Emanuele; Ward, Richard W.; White, Jeffrey W.; Maccaferri, Marco; Tuberosa, Roberto; Araus Ortega, José Luis; Serret Molins, M. Dolors (MDPI, 2020-10-29)High-throughput phenotyping platforms provide valuable opportunities to investigate biomass and drought-adaptive traits. We explored the capacity of traits associated with drought adaptation such as aerial measurements of ...
Transcriptomic and proteomic analyses of a pale-green durum wheat mutant shows variations in photosystem components and metabolic deficiencies under drought stress Peremartí, Ariadna; Marè, Caterina; Aprile, Alessio; Roncaglia, Enrica; Cattivelli, Luigi; Villegas Tort, Dolors; Royo i Calpe, Conxita (BioMed Central, 2014-02-12)Background: Leaf pigment content is an important trait involved in environmental interactions. In order to determine its impact on drought tolerance in wheat, we characterized a pale-green durum wheat mutant (Triticum ...
