The polyploid species of Triticum and Aegilops constitute a classic example of evolution through amphiploidy. The diploid species are at the origin of the tetraploid species, which consequently have common genomes with their diploid ancestors (Table 1).
Studies of [F.sub.1] and [C.sub.0] counterparts indicated that induced amphiploidy in this population resulted in an initial reduction in vegetative vigor, larger guard cells and floral parts, and thicker stems.
