Dormancy in plants: from whole plant behaviour to cellular control.

Book cover for Dormancy in plants: from whole plant behaviour to cellular control.


This book is developed from papers presented at the 2nd International Symposium on Plant Dormancy held in Angers, France, in July 1999. Its 25 chapters are organized into 5 sections: Whole plant and organ physiology (6 chapters); Water relations and stress (5); Abscisic acid and hormonal control (5); Biochemical and cellular aspects (5); and Genetics and molecular biology (4). Dormancy of organs i...


Chapter 22 (Page no: 319)

Molecular genetic analysis of bud dormancy-related traits in Populus.

Species and hybrids of Populus are excellent models for studying traits related to bud dormancy. Considerable progress has been made towards understanding the genetic controls on dormancy-related traits. Quantitative genetic analysis has demonstrated moderate to high heritabilities for these traits. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) affecting bud set and bud break have been identified. QTL analyses of other dormancy-related traits, such as deep dormancy and chilling requirement, are underway. Two candidate genes have been identified whose map positions coincide with QTL for bud set and/or bud flush.
