Spatial and temporal genetic variation in Ethiopian barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) landraces as revealed by simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers

Allo Aman Dido, B.J.K Singh, Ermias Assefa, M.S.R. Krishna, Dawit Degefu & Kassahun Tesfaye
Ethiopia is a center of diversity for barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) and it is grown across different agro-ecologies of the country. Unraveling population structure and gene flow status on temporal scales assists an evaluation of the consequences of physical, demographic as well as overall environmental changes on the stability and persistence of populations. Here, we examine spatial and temporal genetic variation within and among barley landrace samples collected over a period of four decades (1976-2017),...
