Salicylic acid is involved in plant responses to abiotic stress such as drought, cold, heavy metal poisoning, heat and osmotic stress. This study carried out to investigate the effect of salicylic acid on physiological characteristics of Lolium Continue reading

Genetic diversity and heritability of chlorophyll content and photosynthetic indexes among some Iranian wheat genotypes


Khodadadi, H. Dehghani, M.H. Fotokian, B. Rains

Key words: Chlorophyll, clustering, diversity, photosynthesis indexes, wheat.


Genetic diversity and heritability of Chlorophyll (Chl) content and some photosynthetic indexes were studied in thirty wheat genotypes through randomized complete block design with three replications at 2009. The maximum and minimum heritability were obtained for chlorophyll (0.75-0.89) and stomatal conductance (0.2), respectively. Continue reading
