Súhrn/Summary: Flax is one of the oldest cultivated crops with oil and fiber use. Together with wheat and barley it is one of the first crops, which man used for his life requirements and in the agriculture industry (Hajnalová 1999). The Ancient terminology gives evidence about historical and cultura! value of flax. Greek linon, Latin linum, and Celtic lin have a common origin, but lndo-European languages — ooma, utasi, Hebrew pischta are completely different (Hyams 1976). Flax was known as a strategic textile crop in the past.
The aim of this publication was to offer a unified evaluation system for flax genetic resources. The effort for creation of internationally accepted
versatile list of descriptors is initiated by this publication. The system of evaluation and characterization, offered by the
descriptor 9-points scale, expects a creation of such uniform and versatile tool. The publication is divided to three main parts —
general chapters, list of descriptors and annexes. It was made for a wide spectrum of users — from laic public and students to scientists, breeders and others working with genetic resources and modern biotechnologies.
The general chapters contain overview on taxonomy and morphology of the species Linum usitatissimum L. Characterization of plant parts and itsterminology are helpful for evaluation by descriptors.
