Changing Taxonomic Perceptions of the Triticeae.

As is the case with Triticum and Aegilops, the taxonomy of other genera in the Tribe Triticeae is complex and controversial. These comparative tables of the varying generic treatments of the Triticeae were prepared by Dr. Mary Barkworth of Utah State University [mary@biology.usu.edu]. Tables containing a listing of taxa classified in Agropyron, Australopyrum, Elymus, Festucopsis, Peridictyon, and Stenostachys are available on the Utah State University Intermountain Herbarium website.
