Wild barley has been subject to intense studies, and the ecological and physiological diversity in the Middle East area has been particularly explored. Cultivated and wild barley are primarily inbreeders, but the wild form is usually more open flowering and has a somewhat higher outcrossing rate than subsp. vulgare. Usually, wild barley has more or less cleistogamous flowers, but under stress conditions, it can be more open flowering (or anther exserted; Parzies et al. 2000, 2008). Open flowering, chasmogamy, in subsp.

Vulgare. Usually, wild barley has more or less cleistogamous flowers, but under stress conditions, it can be more open flowering (or anther exserted; Parzies et al. 2000, 2008). Open flowering, chasmogamy, in subsp. spontaneum is controlled by a single recessive gene, which is located on chromosome 1H (Kurauchi and Makino 1998). The normal outcrossing rate Barley Origin and Related Species has been determined to maximum ca. 8% in several studies from Israel (Brown et al. 1978) and Jordan (Abdel-Ghani et al.
