WHEAT TAXONOMY

Classification of Aegilops and Amblyopyrum according to Eig 1929.

The Eig classification [references] is frequently encountered in the literature. Although the Zhukovsky classification published in 1928 has priority, most early wheat researchers followed Eig. The original 1929 classification is presented here without corrections except in authority citations and includes Eig's move of 'mutica' into the genus Amblyopyrum in a subsequent publication.
