Drought tolerance in winter cereals: proceedings of an international workshop - 1987 - Printed

Tables; fig

This volume is based on the presentations made by a multidisciplinary group of scientists at an international symposium on Improving Winter Cereals in Moisture-limiting Areas, held in Capri, Italy. The text is organized into four sections. Section I, 'The Framework for Winter Cereals Research in the Low-rainfall Areas of Southwest Asia and the Mediterranean', deals with the role of agroclimatology and of agroecological models in developing a meaningful approach for crop improvement. Section II, 'Breeding for Winter Cereals in the Low-rainfall Areas', reviews and compares the efficiency of current breeding methods and presents some new approaches. Section III deals with 'Physiological Research for Drought Avoidance and Tolerance and its Implication in Breeding Programmes', and section IV deals with 'Plant Characteristics Required for Improved Performance in Moisture-limiting Environments-an ad interim Assessment'. A set of recommendations of the symposium is also included
