THE history of cultivated plants is a subject which has attracted many botanists, and numerous theories of their origin from one or more wild prototypes have been published. Until recently the conclusions of Alphonse de Candolle have been accepted with a minimum of critical revision. The great increase in genetical research and the marked desire of many geneticists to link their studies with other aspects of biology is, however, leading to renewed interest in the taxonomic and geographical history of our common cultivated plants. Much new material has been accumulated and a few geneticists are even devoting time to collecting in person cultivated, feral, and wild examples of the genera and species they are studying in experimental ground and laboratory.
