Geographic distribution of 18 tested populations of wild emmer wheat at 15 sites in Israel. Populations 1-6 were collected from warm, semi-humid environments on the Golan Plateau and near the Sea of Galilee (Yehudiyya, Gamla, Ammiad, Rosh-Pinna, Tabigha, and Mt. Hermon). Populations 7-11 were collected across a wide geographic and marginal steppic area on northern, eastern, and southern borders of wild emmer distribution involving hot, cold, and xeric peripheries (Mt. Gilboa, Mt. Gerizim, Gitit, Kokhav-Hashahar, and J'aba). Populations 12-15 were collected from marginal Mediterranean areas, which are the humid western borders of wild emmer distribution (Amirim, Bet Oren, Bat Shelomo, and Giv'at Koah).
