Abstract

Stepping into the twenty-first century, researches on Triticum and its relative genera have passed three centuries. Many scientists from all over the world have been preoccupied with the classification and evolution, especially with the help of new genetic techniques in the twentieth century. The resulting great achievements offer the premise of the scientific management of germplasm and necessary theoretical knowledge for breeding utilization. Meanwhile, the following questions can be clarified, answered, or affirmed.
