Biochemical, physiological and genetic analysis of aluminum tolerance of different rye species.

Rye (Secale cereale L.) is one of the most Al-tolerant cereal with a valuable genetic background for breeding purposes. Wild relatives (Secale spp.) have great importance once they can provide new sources of genes related to this trait. Different cellular disorders possibly related to Al tolerance/toxicity were observed through histochemical root staining methods in cultivated and wild ryes and a correlation was found.
