AN immense amount of work has been done in recent years in crossing species of cereals and investigating the chromosome behaviour of the hybrids. These crosses include not only many cultivated and wild species of wheat, rye, oats and ASgilops, but also intergeneric crosses between these four genera, Triticum, Secede, Avena, and ASgilops. The results have thrown much light on the phytogeny of the bread wheats and their relation to other genera.
