Nonrace specific resistance and slow rusting suggests that the stripe rust resistance was not controlled by a single major gene, but is inherited polygenically
(Imtiaz et al.
Also, it was reported that morphological data showing continuous distributions or that are polygenically
controlled, are particularly useful in inter-group classification below species level [5, 6, 7].
However, morphological variation does not reliably reflect the real genetic variation because of genotype-environment interactions and the largely unknown genetic control of polygenically
inherited morphological and agronomic traits (Smith and Smith, 1992).
Smith 1993), polygenically
inherited (Boag and van Noordwijk 1987; Grant and Grant 1989).
Comparison of these and our study, with those studies reporting resistance to be polygenically
controlled, suggested several factors that could explain the different results.
