From comparisons of restriction fragment patterns (seven enzymes used) of chloroplast DNA in T. aestivum and 11 related species, it is suggested that Ae. longissima, Ae. aucheri and Ae. bicornis (or Ae. searsii) were the cytoplasmic donors to the T. dicoccoides--T. aestivum and T. timopheevii groups and the Ae. kotschyi--Ae. variabilis complex, respectively.
