WHEAT TAXONOMY

Reclassification of Aegilops according to Löve 1984, with nomenclatural corrections.

The 1984 Löve classification [reference] was part of a taxonomical revision of the Tribe Triticeae. Following a broad interpretation of the biological species concept, Löve defined genera by their unique genome constitution, either as genera of diploids or polyploids. Thus, Aegilops was split into 13 genera, each corresponding to either a diploid genome grouping or polyploid genome cluster. The classification is presented here with corrections in authority citations.
