Abstract

Greater phenological diversity in domesticated narrow-leafed lupins {Lupinus angustifolius; NLL) is required to enhance the broader adaption and adoption of this pulse crop in mid- to long-season environments. Using a range of genetic/genomic resources and approaches, this thesis explored the genetic diversity and regulation of flowering time in NLL. The discovery of novel allelic variation at a major flowering time· gene and the identification of the genomic location for a second gene provides good scope to efficiently select for mid--season flowering times in breeding programs and better understand the genetic pathways underpinning this biologically and economically important trait in legumes.
