Evaluation of Three Wild Species of Almond on the Basis of Their Morphological Characters

B. Baninasab and M. Rahemi

The present study aims to evaluate the seedling behaviour of Amygdalous scoparia, A. webbii and A. orientalis at the inter-specific level. The analysis of variance showed a significant difference between species. However, A. scoparia had highest stem height and leaf length. At the end of the experiment, the thickest stems were developed by A. scoparia, whereas the thinnest stems by A. orientalis. A. webbii produced more number and longer roots per seedling than the other two species. The correlation between various morphological traits showed that a few shoot characters were significantly correlated with root traits. However, leaf length, leaf width, leaf area, root number and root diameter for P. webbii and leaf number, leaf length, leaf width, petiole length and root number characters for P. scoparia and stem height, leaf number, leaf length, petiole length, internode length and root number for P. orientalis were found to be important morphological traits to evaluate seedling charactristics of wild almond genotypes before their nursery test.
