On June 25, at the ED 1.25 Dissertation Council operating under the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnologies, Ph.D. Atabey Jahangirov defended his dissertation on "Morphophysiological bases of winter soft wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) selection under rainfed conditions of Mountainous Shirvan" to receive the degree of Doctor of Sciences in Biology. The dissertation work was carried out at the Department of Plant Physiology of the Research Institute of Crop Husbandry and the Gobustan Regional Experimental Station. Academician Irada Huseynova was the Scientific Supervisor of the work. The applicant gave detailed information about the relevance of the topic, the goal of the dissertation work, the scientific novelty of the work, and the results obtained. Ph.D. Atabey Jahangirov noted that for the first time, the phenological and morphophysiological characteristics, yield, drought tolerance and sensitivity, yield stability, plasticity, and adaptability of winter bread wheat depending on the water supply conditions have been comprehensively studied and traits identified can be applied in the selection work. By applying the obtained results in the selection, the winter bread wheat varieties "Lyagatli 80", "Leader", "Jubilee 90", "Baba 75", "Champion", and "Gülüstan 100" were created and regionalized for mountainous and foothill regions that are not supplied with stable moisture.
