Many wheat-growing regions worldwide experience drought and heat waves. Both stresses greatly affect wheat production and cause social and economic issues. One way to limit the impact of climate variability on wheat productivity is to develop wheat varieties better adapted to a changing climate. My project aims to explore wheat genetic diversity to identify physiological traits that confer tolerance to drought and high temperatures in wheat.
