Table 1 Range, mean and least significant difference (LSD) for the number of seminal roots, seedling root length (cm), and root angle (°) among the wheat–-alien chromosome lines (Experiment 1)

From: Alien chromosome segment from Aegilops speltoides and Dasypyrum villosum increases drought tolerance in wheat via profuse and deep root system

Trait Range Mean LSD
Number of seminal roots 2.6–6.3 4.2 1.1***
Seedling root length (cm) 6.8–23.7 18.1 2.5***
Root angle (°) 38.6–59.3 48.7 6.3***
  1. *** indicates P ≤ 0.001
