Classification of Triticum according to Nevski 1934.

Nevski's classification of Triticum for the 1934 edition of the Flora of the USSR [reference] departed from the concurrent treatment of Flaksberger [reference] in several respects. Nevski moved T. polonicum to its own Section and raised two ecogeographic forms of T. dicoccum, "armeniacum" and "volgense", to species status. His other contributions to Triticum taxonomy are not as well known. In 1935, he suggested changing his Section Crithodium to Monococcon Dumort. Nevski was among the first European triticologists to use the correct Linnaean name for hexaploid bread wheat, T. aestivum L. Unfortunately, Nevski's untimely death in 1938 from tuberculosis interrupted his work; he was only 27. Nevski's classification is presented here in its original form with corrections in spelling and authority citations.
