WHEAT TAXONOMY

Classification of Aegilops according to Zhukovsky 1928.

Publication of the Zhukovsky classification [reference] preceded Eig's by several months and thus has priority. Although its Russian language inhibited its adoption, the Zhukovsky classification is an important historical contribution to wheat taxonomy. The classification is presented here without corrections except in the spelling and authority citations.
