Formatted abstract
The grain morphology of 17 wild rice relatives were studied by light and scanning electron
microscopy and compared to two cultivated rice varieties (Oryza sativa cv. Nipponbare
and O. sativa cv. Teqing). Observations were made of the grain colour, size and shape.
Grains from wild rice species exhibited a variety of colours that have potential aesthetic and
nutritional value. The grains of these species exhibited a wide array of sizes and shapes, but
still fell within the standard classification scale that rice breeders use for routine breeding
evaluation. These results highlight the potential of these species as whole grain foods or as
sources of novel alleles in conventional rice breeding programmes.
