The development of genetic maps is, nowadays, one of the most intensive research activities of plant geneticists. One of the major goals of genome mapping is the localisation of quantitative trait loci QTLs. This study was aimed at the identification of QTLs controlling morphological traits of rye and comparison of their localisation on genetic maps constructed with the use of genetically different germplasms. For QTL analyses, two high-density consensus maps of two populations RIL-S and RIL-M of recombinant inbred lines RIL were applied. Plant height Ph, length of spikes Sl and the number of spikelets per spike Sps were studied in both populations. Additionally, the number of kernels per spike under isolation Kps, the weight of kernels per spike Kw and thousand kernel weight Tkw were assessed in the RIL-M population. Except for Tkw, the majority of the traits were correlated to each other. The non-parametric Kruskal–Wallis K-W test and composite interval mapping CIM revealed 18-48 and 24-18 regions of rye chromosomes engaged in the determination of Ph, Sl and Sps in the RIL-S and RIL-M populations, respectively. An additional 18-15 QTLs controlling Kps, Kw and Tkw were detected on a map of the RIL-M population. A numerous group of QTLs detected via CIM remained in agreement with the genomic regions found when the K-W test was applied. Frequently, the intervals indicated by CIM were narrower.
