Comment
The liguleless character is controlled by complementary recessive genes in hexaploid wheat (59, 529, 670) and by a single recessive gene in tetraploid wheat (38, 39, 660). One gene at the tetraploid level is allelic with one of those in the hexaploid (660).
Rye chromosome 2R restored the liguled condition to a liguleless Chinese Spring derivative (660).
Because diploid wheats are liguled, polyploid wheats presumably carry a third recessive gene in chromosome 2A.
