Note: this study examined 10 populations to establish levels of genetic variation (low within, high between); it found that a commonly taxonomic character (shape of lemma awns) used to distinguish members of the group has a multigene control and it is modified by environmental conditions; it concluded that the Elymus dahuricus complex "should be considered as a polymorphic taxon"
