Abstract

Crop evolution is formed by the interaction of natural selection from the environment and artificial selection from humans cultivation the crops. In this project we will investigate how selection and gene flow has shaped the distribution of genetic diversity in two crop systems: barley on the Canary Islands and oats in Sweden.
