Inheritance of Anatomical Structure in Plants

    Naturevolume 134page708 (1934) | Download Citation



    THERE have been very few investigations of the inheritance of anatomical structure in plants. A recently issued work by E. W. Sinnott, Helen Houghtaling and A. F. Blakeslee is a contribution to this subject, based on a comparison of the vascular anatomy in, (a) the polyploid forms of Datura (n, 2n, 3n, 4n), and (b) the 12 trisomic (2n-J-l) mutants and such of their secondaries as were available. Among the few earlier studies, the authors have overlooked the work of Penhallow on the anatomy of a hybrid Catalpa, and the papers of Gates and Bartlett on cell measurements in tetraploid Enothera.
