Chromosomes in Avena

WINGE (Hereditas, 5, pp. 241–286, 1924) has recently shown that irregular chromosome conditions, somewhat different from any previously reported, occur in certain aberrant forms of wheat. A cytological study of “false wild oats” begun here last summer has shown chromosome conditions in at least one homozygous strain of this “fatuoid” form of Avena sativa, L., to be very similar in many respects to those reported by Winge for a homozygous “speltoid” form of wheat.
