Ibro. V., M. Prebibaj., (2017) Some biometric advantages of cylindrical ears Aegilops accessions. The XII International Annual Meeting of Alb-Science Institute, Prishtine, 1-3 September 2017.
Numerous studies have been elaborated for the assessment of the genetic resources of wheat and its wild relative species, in particular those of the genus Aegilops. The study of genetic diversity of Aegilops may provide significant information regarding their potential for wheat breeding. Types of Aegilops, closely related to wheat, exhibit greater genetic diversity, the exploitation of which has been the subject of experimentation for many years. The wild relatives of bread wheat, T. aestivum L., are considered as potential sources of useful alleles for bread- wheat improvement. Efficient strategy to solve loss of plant diversity consists of exploiting wild germplasm genomes of wheat species, which preserve a good part of their adaptive factor and diseases toleranse. The scope of this study is to find out if the Aegilops accessions with cylindrical ears, collected in the territory of Albania, show any significant difference from other types related to ears, seeds and seedlings morphological and physiological parameters. The main objective of the study is the evaluation of the different morpho-physiological parameters on seeds, ears and seedlings of cylindrical ears Aegilops accessions and the comparison of them with the same parameters of conical ears accessions.


Ibro. V., M. Prebibaj., (2017) Seed seedling relation in two very distinct Aegilops accessions. Second International Conference on "Biotechnology in Agriculture". Friedrich-Schiller University Jena, Agricultural University of Tirana.

The genus Aegilops includes about 20 identified species. At present, it is more and more accepted the idea that different Aegilops, as relatives of wheat, can serve as suitable materials in wheat genetic improvement. This is very important, especially in creating wheat lines or cultivars with high resistance to abiotic stresses and diseases. Researchers of the DPST, for several years continue the ex situ and laboratory evaluations on 24 Aegilops accessions collected in different areas of Albania, in order to evidentate some of their most interesting morpho physiological parameters. The ear weight, seed number, seed weight per ear and 1000 seeds weight for each Aegilops accession included in the experiment, have been evaluated. Beside these, the seeds imbibition potential and seedlings weight, height, leaf area have been evaluated, too. From the results of the numerous data processing, it is concluded that among the Aegilops accessions, included in the study, exist significant differences related their seeds and seedlings biometric parameters. For the most part of the evaluated parameters, the conical ear Aegilops accessions show advantages toward the cylindrical ones. Correlative analysis resulted in differences in the coefficients of correlation between seeds and seedlings parameters produced by Aegilops with distinct forms of the ear, respectively conical and cylindrical ones.

Ibro.V.,M. Prebibaj., (2016) An Evaluation on seeds morphological and physiological parameters of some Aegilops accessions. Eleventh Annual Meeting of Institute Alb-Shkenca, Tirana, Albania.
The genus Aegilops, have a great genetic and agronomic interest as a very important source for the wheat genetic improvement especially, for the resistance to abiotic stresses, diseases and some other morphological and physiological parameters, too. Eight, different Aegilops accessions, from the collection of the Botanical Garden at Agricultural University of Tirana (AUT) have been studied, comparing their seeds and seedlings. The experiment was set up parallel in plots outside and in chamber conditions inside the Laboratory of Crop Physiology. The ear weight, seed number and seed weight per ear and 1000 seeds weight for each Aegilops ear type included in the study have been evaluated. Beside these, the seeds imbibition potential has been evaluated too. From the results of the numerous data processing, it is concluded that among two types of the Aegilops accessions, included in the study, exist significant differences related their seeds biometric parameters. The conical ear Aegilops accessions show advantages toward the cylindrical ones related the ear weight, 1000 seeds weight and seeds weight after the process of imbibition, but the cylindrical ear accessions show a greater seed number per ear. This conclusion show the necessity for some chemical analysis on their seeds in the future.

Ibro.V.,M. Prebibaj., (2016) An overwiew on Xibri bean a Phaseolus vulgaris population of Dibra region, Albania. Slow Food 2016, Tirana, Albania.
Phaseolus vulgaris is an herbaceous annual plant of the Fabaceae (legume or bean family) that is cultivated in many parts of the world for its beans, which can be harvested and eaten immature, still in the edible pod, or when mature, shelled, and dried. Shijak, Caush, Kallmet are the most widely cultivated species in Albania, but a numerous varieties native and imported are present at market, too. Some are eligibility eco -climatic conditions of different regions of Albania and for some others need more information on their biometric and productive potentials. Xibri is a bean population named from the village with the same name of Dibra region. It is the most preferred bean from the native population, but still not officially registered. The experiment was set up in Experimental Station and the Laboratory

of Crop Physiology of Agricultural University of Tirana. The present study aims to evaluate some biometric parameters of Xibri bean population comparing with variety Shijaku present widely in the market. The studied parameters include seed length and width, dry seed weight, imbibition potential, hypocotyl length, seedling root/shoot ratio, first leaves area and specific leaf area. The two years data processing show that the seed and seedling biometric parameters of Xibri bean population are relatively uniform and exist significant differences from variety Shijaku. The seedlings come from Xibri bean population are more vigorous than that of Shijaku variety, even they come from seeds nearly 50 % smaller.


Ibro.V.,M. Prebibaj., (2015) A comparative study on seeds and seedlings originated from Aegilops with conical and cylindrical ears. Ecologica Montenegrina 2015.
Recently exist a common understanding that species of the genus Aegilops, have a great genetic and agronomic interest as important sources for wheat genetic improvement especially, for resistance to diseases, pests and abiotic stresses. The research consists in a comparative study on seeds and seedlings originated from conical and cylindrical ears of several Aegilops accessions, from the collection of Botanical Garden at Agricultural University of Tirana (AUT). The experiment was set up paralelly in plots outside and in chamber conditions inside the Laboratory of Plant Physiology. The ear weight and 1000 seeds weight for each Aegilops ear type has been evaluated. Beside these, the seedling height, dry weight, specific leaf weight, root/ shoot ratio are some of the evaluated seedling parameters. From the results of the numerous data processing, it is concluded that among two types of the Aegilops accessions, included in the study, exist significant differences related their seeds and seedligs biometric parameters. The conical ear aegilops accessions show advantages toward the cylindrical ones related ear weight, 1000 seeds weight and seedlings growth dynamics. The conical ear Aegilops accessions show the higher seedlings dry weight, specific leaf weight and root :shoot ratio, too.


Ibro.V., M. Prebibaj., (2015). The dynamics of biomass production of Alfalfa in two different eco-climatic regions of Albania. International Conference on Soil, 4-6 May 2015, Tirana, Albania.
Alfalfa, M. sativa L. is an important forage plant in Albania. Currently, alfalfa is widely used all over the country occupying around 70% of the total land that crops fodder plants. Recently it has extended to over 140 000 hectors. The regional distribution of alfalfa is linked in general to the breeding of the livestock, especially cattle. Alfalfa has a powerful impact, more than any other plant, in the improvement of biological values and particularly

in soil fertility and its protection from erosion and weeds. The structure of alfalfa stands in Albania, although there are dozens of foreign varieties, in more than 30 % is occupied by the domestic ecotype Tomin. For years, this ecotype has not been subject of any genuine genetic improvement programs, and as such failed to give high harvests, even in its region of origin, Diber. On the other side, some of the alfalfa varieties present in the market, are characterized by high yield potentials.A comparative study of biomass production of alfalfa and evaluation of a range of other biometric indicators was conducted on four foreign varieties and ecotype Tomin, in two different eco-climatic regions of Abania.

A great interest has been focused to the genus Aegilops, which is closely related to Triticum constitutes a precious source of economically important traits for wheat improvement. In fact, many studies have been elaborated for the assessment of the genetic resources of wheat and wild relative species, in particular those of the genus Aegilops for potential source of new variations for resistance to various diseases and pests, drought, salinity and reserve protein quality. Therefore, the original habitat of cultivated wheat and wild cereals was destroyed or modified by many detrimental activities related to huma population growth. These sources of erosion affected the disappearance of numerous local varieties and species. Consequently, loss of diversity is observed been especially for gramineous species such as wild wheat and related its cultivated derives. Efficient strategy to solve loss of plant diversity consists of exploiting wild germoplasm genomes of wheat species, which preserve a good part of their adaptive factor and diseases tolerance. The introgression of a particular gene constituted the main objective of the improvement of wheat. The genera Aegilops (goatgrasses) and Triticum (wild and cultivated wheats) are taxonomically placed in the tribe Triticeae of the Poaceae. The value of wild wheat relatives as a genetic resource for wheat cultivars improvement depends on the amount of genetic variability. Aegilops is characterized as a Mediterranean-Western Asiatic element, and its center of diversity follows the central part of the Fertile Crescent.The genus Aegilops contains 22 species comprising both diploids and polyploids, which originated from the center of origin (Kimber and Feldman, 1987; van Slageren, 1994; Wang et al., 2000). The study of genetic diversity of the genetic resources of Aegilops may provide significant information regarding their potential for wheat breeding.


Ibro.V., M. Prebibaj (2013). The study of ear characteristics of some Aegilops accessions collected in Albanian territory. 3rd International Conference of Ecosystems (ICE 2013), Tirana, Albania. The Proceedings Book ICE 2013 in https://sites.google.com/a/ubt.edu.al/eko-eto-bioklim/3rd-international-conference-of-ecosystems-ice-2013/proceeding-book-ice2013
Aegilops, as wheat relatives, actually are attracting attention to their morphological, physiological and genetic studies. These aim to create the opportunity for their results using in classic taxonomic, cytological and evolutionary studies in one side, and the application of chromosomal and molecular biology methods in cultivated plants genetic improvement, on the other side. The plant materials used in this study consist in 24 accessions of Aegilops collected at different regions of Albania. The studied parameters include ear characteristics like ear length, ear weight, number of grain per spike etc. The results showed that the Aegilops accessions collected in different parts of Albania show a relative wide variability for ear morphological parameters. These results could become a very useful material as a source for more deep genetic and molecular studies of Aegilops accessions collected.

Aegilops-et, si paraardhës të largët të grurit vazhdojnë të përbëjnë një objekt me interes të lartë studimi. Kjo vlen si për efekt të koleksionimit, studimit dhe ruajtjes së llojeve autoktone, aq edhe për të pasuruar bankën gjenetike me lloje të spikatur lidhur me disa veçori morfo- fiziologjike të tyre. Është, relativisht, i njohur fakti që frekuenca dhe dimensionet e gojëzave janë tregues me rëndësi përsa i takon studimit të kariotipit poliploid, por edhe si tregues të përdorshëm për të karakterizuar aftësitë transpiruese, fotosintetizuese dhe të rezistencës ndaj thatësirës të bimëve. Studimi u realizua mbi gjethet e bimëve të koleksionit prej 24 aksesionesh të Aegilops-eve të Kopshtit Botanik të Universitetit Bujqësor të Tiranës (UBT). Preparimi dhe vrojtimi i materialeve bimore u realizua në Laboratorin e Citologjisë të Departamentit të Bioteknologjisë të Universitetit të Tiranës (UT). Nga përpunimi i të dhënave rezulton se mes aksesioneve të Aegilops-eve ka variacion të vërtetuar statistikisht si për frekuencën gojëzore në të dy epidermat e gjetheve, ashtu edhe për dimensionet e tyre.
