Thlaspi arvense collection

  • These are wild type lines.
  • This collection contains 20 single seed descent lines stock numbers N9661...N9680
  • Ploidy of Thlaspi arvense 2n = 2x = 14


Species variant data

  • The original collection was from a single stand of plants in a corner of a field. This seed was bulked and some of this resulting seed was donated to NASC. From the donated seed, 20 seeds were germinated, allowed to self pollinate, and the seed from each plant was individually collected to produce 20 single seed decent stocks.
  • Habitat: Roadside, sandy loam, rocky ground on limestone A conservation headland of a low phosphate, sandy loam, pH 6.5 - 7 arable field used to grow maize at Warwick HRI, Wellesbourne, England. The region's climate and vegetation are considered to be wet temperate forest.
  • Location: Wharf ground conservation headland, Warwick HRI, Wellesbourne, Warwickshire, England.
  • Country: England
