Weebill

Australia's smallest bird, the Weebill is found in woodlands and forests throughout mainland Australia. The diet consists mostly of insects and larvae. The female usually lays between two to three brown-speckled cream-colored eggs.

unknown seedling leaf rust resistance gene derived from Weebill 1 in both crosses, and Lr17a derived from Jupateco 73S in the RIL population. Lr17a was mapped to the distal end of chromosome 2AS and was linked to microsatellite maker Xgwm636 at a distance of 4.0 cM. The seedling genes did not condition effective resistance in the field plots with races used in the field trials. The segregation ratio in the RILs and F2 families indicated the presence of three to four APR genes in Weebill 1. More

The Weebill (Smicrornis brevirostris) is a small, approximately 9 cm long, olive-yellow songbird with a grey bill, brown wings, pale yellow eye and grey feet. Its tail feathers are brown with black bar and white spot on tip of all inner webs but the central pairs. Both sexes are similar. The Weebill is the only member of genus Smicrornis; gene flow is strong and local variation follows Bergmann's and Gloger's Rule. More

Weebill Smicrornis brevirostris Click on image to hear the call The Weebill is Australia's smallest bird. They have a clear, pleasant call that is easily recognised. They characteristically flutter in and around the outer foliage of trees collecting insects, often in association with Thornbills, Silvereyes and other birds in winter feeding flocks. Weebill numbers are regular throughout the year being slightly greater during the winter. Breeding starts early with nest building in mid-July. More

Interpretive Summary: The wheat cultivar called Weebill 1 that was developed by the international wheat breeding center, CIMMYT, is very resistant to the disease called wheat leaf rust. This study was conducted to determine what genes for leaf rust resistance are present in Weebill 1. In a genetic analysis the gene Lr14b, and a new gene that gives resistance in seeedling plants were determined to be in Weebill 1. More

The CIMMYT spring wheat Weebill 1 has near-immune levels of adult plant resistance (APR) to leaf rust caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks. To determine the genetic basis of resistance in seedlings and adult plants Weebill 1 was crossed with two susceptible parents Jupateco 73S and 'Thatcher'. Advanced F-4:5, F-4:6, and F-5:7 recombinant inbred lines (RIL) populations from Jupateco 73S/Weebill 1 and BC1F2 populations from Thatcher/Weebill 1 were derived. The F-5:7 RILs and BC1F2 families were tested as seedlings with five races of P. More
