This paper provides an introduction to the complex changes that occur during reproduction in the wheat plant, and is mainly intended for field scientists who are unfamiliar with events that occur at the apical meristem. Growth stages during reproductive development in wheat are identified and briefly described. In addition, stages of reproductive development that are likely to be particularly vulnerable to environmental stresses are suggested.
